starting left tackle next season?



With faulk going to the NFL, who takes over at left tackle? Do they swap vadal from right tackle?

Hope not, Vadal didnt show much lateral foot speed against Clemson. Pushing people off the line of scrimmage, yes. Pass blocking elite rush defenders, no.

Hawkins was raw when he came in, but I think he may have the best chance of the group, I don't expect a true freshmen (pocic) to come in and start unless he absolutely blows people away in the spring. Another option would be to slide Collins over. It'll definitely be something to keep an eye on in the spring.

hopefully Vadal is moved to guard. If Hawkins is ready, then him or Collins.

Maybe move Collins to left tackle, wasn't he recruited for that position.

Right, because players, particularly true freshmen, never improve in the offseason.

Why not Collins? Wasn't he the highest rated tackle prospect out of highschool? L

Collins bro. The thinking was they didn't want to make the move this year as fear of competition with Faulk and then Faulk leaving. This is what some said when Faulk got injured. I think u gotta move him now. Easier to find a guard than a tackle. Slide wiliford into Collins spot.

Josh williford is a guy many here seems to have forgotten about.
If back healthy he'll start every game.
