Well not Clay but all three of these guys we just signed are very good football players… I’ve heard where they think st John might be the most ready but in my opinion Henderson is a freak! You can’t teach that kind of athleticism he has for a guy over 300 pounds. I think all three will provide very good depth if nothing else but I’m not going to be surprised if one of them steps in and plays a my personal opinion is it will probably be Henderson.
I don’t know how to compare any of them to Kirkland. He was a massive and powerful package. How much will Davis help the current guys probably determines that answer. Honestly, I don’t know yet. Stromberg and Limmer might be more talented than what Sam inherited last time. They get a chance in the spring to prove a few things. I don’t know if one of those could move out to tackle and learn some things this spring that get them on the field or not. You would probably expect a true freshman to play at guard before tackle. I don’t have answers to the OL questions just yet, but might soon.
The key for a freshman to get on the field in offensive line is for them to be healthy over the summer and through August practices. They can’t miss a week here or there because of an ankle sprain or bump here or there. Just so much to learn. Older players can absorb a missed set of practices and still play. Not a freshman.
