I think its pretty simple, little more depth at OLB, Divinity, being a Sr should be able to better handle quarterbacking the defense as White did last year

I think the Divinity move to inside linebacker is to open up a spot for Andre Anthony at the F-linebacker position. As I read a couple of times where Aranda said that Anthony had really improved his pass-rushing ability big time. Thus, instead of moving Divinity behind Anthony, which would have been almost unfair to him since he is a senior and a great leader on the team in his final season and who is hoping to be drafted next spring, they tried him out at the other inside linebacker spot, where he proved he could handle the position. Then Queen will probably replace him next season and have his final season to try to impress the scouts.

its not Anthony, its Chaisson... Chaisson is Back from Injury, thus moving Divinity to inside... I still think there will be a battle there between him and Queen...

Ika is going to be a stud. The only thing I see with him is his strength needs to improve and it eventually will. As Deculus destroyed him in the Big Cat drill. Too bad Deculus plays right tackle because he is a pro prospect all day long at guard. While Shelvin, who is now in his third year in the program, went up against Damian Lewis and actually pushed him back a couple of steps before Lewis regained his footing and pushed back a little, but overall, although it was very close, I thought Shelvin won that battle. Then Saddiq Charles went up against Glen Logan and completely pancaked Glen Logan flat on his back. Anyway, I think overall the offensive line will be quite a bit better than last season. As both Charles and Deculus look much quicker. Will they be all SEC quality? I doubt it. Nonetheless, the beauty of the new RPO plays is the offensive line run-blocks, as opposed to pass-blocks, and our offensive line last season was far better at run-blocking than it was at pass-blocking. Plus the ball gets out to the receivers a lot quicker as well. Hence, regardless of how bad or how good the offensive line is, I feel like the offense will be significantly improved this season relative to last season due to the new RPO plays and because of what should be a very significant upgrade in the run game.

Ed Ingram gave birth to Travonte Valentine and then Valentine & Thad Moss gave birth to Ed Ingram again. Inception style

Ingram has played much more than both of those guys.

Whatever happened to innocent till proven guilty? Ingram is accused of a crime and is going to be put on trial because of it. However, all indications are that he will be able to rejoin the team sometime next month in June. Cross your fingers.
