Guard depth (sweet mother of Moses)

Silatolu (LG starter) 6'4" 315lbs

Hangartner (RG starter) 6'5" 305lbs

Then we have this depth, all of which is very inexperienced.

Hayworth Hicks 6'3" 330lbs. from Iowa State (2 years NFL camp experience)

Edmund Kugbila 6'4" 325lbs. from DII Valdosta State (Rookie)

Tori Mobley 6'3" 300lbs. from DIAA Jacksonville State (Rookie)

Justin Wells 6'4" 325lbs. from CIAA St Augustine (1 year NFL camp experience)

Gary Williams 6'3" 315lbs. (5 years NFL experience who played like poo at RG last year)

Gettelman has to be looking to bring in a vet. I mean if we suffer an injury to our starters the middle of our offense is in deep poo.

I think most of those guys are gone or PS by the end of camp.  A couple vets that get the axe will most likely be coming in.

Well, we talked about both our lines needing help all last year. All we had done to address the O was Kugbilla. Thats pretty much saying alright lets go get this guy and patch it up for a year with a vet. You would have to think that Gettles waited til now to bet on the market rewarding us with a cheap vet, but damn, just pick someone up.

I'm not sure what vet guards are on the bubble but the FA market is basically an empty cupboard. Cam was hit a lot last year. But if Shula is wanting to run like he says he does then vet help is a necessity unless Kugbila just flat out surprises.

There just no way a d2 guy is gonna come in and hold up. His body isnt ready, he doesnt know the playbook yet, never played with the guys before much less anything close to this level. He needs a year to adapt. What Amini did last year is nothing short of beastly and should not be expected of Kugbilla. We need a vet now.

There is no reason he couldn't play to Amini's level. I certainly don't want to rely on both of those young guys at the same time though.

Ive said before - Cam s liable to get hurt this year if he takes another beating like last year.
