Leverage...

Name of the game

Find me a heavyweight wrestler...that is what you want at Nose Tackle...

Garrett Goebel was a real technician at the 1 Technique...not the biggest guy or most explosive...but he was real good at creating a double team because he played with a low center of gravity and was uncanny at when to drop and make a pile...

Dexter Larrimore and Tim Anderson also were really good ones...

lock him down...

Good vision/hips..

Lowers his level to take on contact...good stiff arm...and can pull away from defenders...

That is what we call a "horse"...

I know I am in the minority but I just assume have a different uniform every week.

Ha ha...agree...

If you go back and look at the history of Ohio State linebackers (or really, any good/great linebacker) I'd wager you'd see they played RB as well in high school...LBs have to be able to see the hole/window/gap whatever you want to call it just like the opposing RB...

McMillian, Baker, Lee (QB), Perry, Rolle, Homan, Laurinaitis, Hawk, all played RB.

Vision...most important trait for a linebacker...

They need to be able to see the windows just like a runningback...

I'm not sure Booker has "it" 

I know the staff loved Nick C.'s upside when he got on campus...but I'm not sure what has happened since...

Tuf Borland was all the talk in spring ball...and took a redshirt 

Harrison and Jones played...

Food for thought...

I'm not sure Wilson is the type of coach to hire to not be in charge of his own offense...

and I believe that is why Meyer brought in a guy like Wilson was rumored in the first place...

That being said, Meyer and Wilson's "core values" will align well...

I'd expect Ward and Sheffield are your starting Cornerbacks 

I have no reason to assume that Damon Webb will not start at FS 

I believe what they do with the open SS position will depend on what they want to do as a base coverage...do they return more of a 1/4s base or do they want to continue with the Cover 1...???
