Per Kirwan twitter.

16 * 30 = 480

For comparison Dwan played 51 snaps a game or 718 snaps in 14 games last year.

Gettelman said he's a a 3 down player

We played 1008 defensive snaps last year total which equals 63 per game

Discuss.

I think early on we'll use Star solely as a run stuffer.

Im guessing they really wanna have a 7-8 man rotation on the d-line to keep everyone fresh and healthy.

I guess getting plays off is better than taking plays off.

If we rotate Short and Star we'll at least be able to get them both a decent amount of playing time, which is invaluable at this point in their development. Bring Short in on 3rd down to get more pressure on the QB while giving Star some rest from breaking all of those double teams. It's not a terrible idea...

Keep in mind that, ideally speaking, an improved defense should be playing fewer snaps overall.

A more effective offense factors into that formula as well.

On draft night, when watching the center for Purdue get blown back into the qb for a sack, Mayock said he does this! A lot when he...is not tired. Marshall Faulk flinching at the pain Star causes.

Keeping a fresh Star is a Disruptive Star.

Smart move.

Dude is 320 lbs and played 92% of the snaps last year. He wasn't taking plays off. For comparison Floyd played around 60%-65%.

 

This is a good thing. We need to keep everyone fresh because we have a lot of talent on the D line now.

Probably want Star in on 1st and 2nd downs and then both Short and Dwan on 3rd downs for pass rush?

Damn that's a lot of snaps for Dwan last season.

I would like to see Star out there more but if we have to do that to get Short some snaps, mind as well do it.

Chico might think that he wants Star out there for 30 snaps a game but when he proves that he's a STAR, we're looking at 40-50 snaps for him.

Star can have the same rookie impact on this team like Cam and Luke, they weren't getting any limited snaps, why should Star.

Because Star is 320 pounds. He's a big guy. Big guy's need rest to make a consistent impact. Obviously this is two fold. If we need him in the game, he's gonna play. But keeping a rotation will be key to consistent pressure.

Can't forget that he is also making the transition from college to pro, meaning that this season will be longer than any he's played before.
