Although I am far from being ooooowed by our D-line. I am willing to say. If competition breeds success, we should see an improved line over last year.

That said, the LB corp is still a little lacking. Even with the addition of Keuchly. I am not sure how that will impact what Rivera wants to do. But, the D, overall, should be improved over last year. Which along with improved ST play, should give us the impetus for a strong playoff run.

My Zod, I get giddy just thinking about next year. And GOOOOOO CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Being thrown into the fire as a third round pick, applicable to both McClain and Fua, is a tall task for anyone at any position. I don't believe people realize how complex the positions on the defensive line are to master and thereby diminish players for not being successful right away. Charles Johnson, our best lineman, was questionable at best coming out. Greg Hardy was inconsistent and lost at times before putting in a fairly solid year last season.

I'm not sure anybody could reasonably expect for what we saw last season to be the best that all these players get. The players with the highest physical ceiling and that work the hardest will be the best players from this group.

I don't think we should annoint anybody our future savior at the position until we see how much they have improved, or regressed, at the start of next season. The position is the most wide open on the team right now. It's great to have a hand full of options to choose from, but do not sleep on Fua in particular. I think he has the skills required to take the position.

Kearse was a rookie last year too and he looked way better than Fua or McClain ever did the 2-3 games he started. I hope he makes the team, I think we keep 5 DTs, Edwards, Fua and McClain all have spots locked up so Neblett, Kearse and Shirley will be fighting for the last 2. I would think Kearse and Neblett win the spots but we'll see. I like Kearse a lot though.

    • You're looking at a false reality. You're creating a narrative that doesn't truly exist, that a person is only defined by their race and nothing else. Your views on people are just as bad as those who created the Jim Crow Laws, spit on people and look down on them based on race only, and enslaved millions because of the color of their skin; never once considering them how they are as a person. You see them based on their race instead of how they are as people. Ignore the fact that America has elected a black president twice in a row for an 8 year presidency. Ignore the plentiful amount of successful blacks in plenty of fields of career fields who are wealthy and living a productive and successful lifestyle. Ignore the dominance of black athletes in sports. Look at them as people, and how their personality and characteristics got them to where they are instead of race. The way they got to where they are is completely justified and has nothing to do with race.
    • He's the most intriguing prospect of the draft.  If he can be a true T with the ability to not only play both spots but to excel in them we may have selected one of the steals of the draft.  Sucks we won't have that 5th yr option but I'd welcome that problem later to have a true LT/RT for years to come.
    • I 100% support his politics. I 100% hate him as a QB...along with Wilson Luck and Ryan. I want him to succeed as I like having NFL adversaries for Cam #TeamCam
