    During the small amount of practices I watched I noticed that he had a knack for timing the snap count and getting into the backfield. He's only 232 now (per adam), but I think we may have found CUD's heir apparent. He's thin to play a 3 down DE, but could definitely play a hybrid role.

    Let him rush the passer on known passing downs until he gets his weight up.

    Think he could be in the 240-245 range after a good redshirt year.

    Easily. I feel good about the prospects of Jimmie and Markeis coming off the edges in the coming years.

    I guess what I'm saying is like him playing at 240-245. We need pass rushers more than we need behemoth DEs.

    Everyone should watch the tape of the Stanford vs. Oregon game last year. It's the recipe on stopping the zone read spread offense and it mandates that your DE is super fast, yet physical. The Stanford guy on the Left Side, could cheat in on the inside handoff, but still not allow the Duck QB to get around the corner. The zone read leaves one DE unblocked and the QB reads him. If he cheats inside, the QB will run around him. Not vs. Stanford.

    Not really a breakthru in philosophy, but it's the first time I have seen Chip's offense shut down like that.

    You basically needs DEs that can run like LBs. Not talking great speed in the 4.6 range, but guys that can reasonably hold up. With a team like Oregon, you are not going to be able to substitute much, so you better have guys that can play three downs.

    Auburn also did a good job by getting pressure up the middle.

    Yes with what the best DT since Suh? that isn't such a replicable approach.

    If I'm not mistaken, Stanford runs a 3-4, so those DEs who had contain were rush LBs like Chase Thomas and Skov (can't remember if he plays inside or outside). To me Reed could be a great 3-4 LB.
