I HAVE A SOLUTION. Well, maybe.
Posted: Aug 21, 2014 12:24 AM
 

It has occurred to me that DJ Reader is NUMBER Eligible to take snaps in the back field as a FULLBACK.. This guy would be like the FRIDGE for the Bears. If he had a 5 yard runway to take off then who could stop him? He is well into the 300lbs club. Also, he has played baseball.

FACTS: Has been a primary backup at defensive tackle and has also seen action as a fullback ... has the size and mobility to make a difference ... became the second Tiger to letter on top-25 football and baseball teams in one academic year (2012-13) since 1994-95 (Kyle Parker (2009-10) is the other) ... has 83 tackles, five tackles for loss, three sacks, 11 quarterback pressures, and one pass breakup in 578 snaps over 26 games (three starts) in his career.

From the way it looks on the roster and depth chart we have more than enough depth at DT. Why can't we just shift him in the back field to take snaps in short yardage situations?

I know it seems grandiose at best, but what I am stating is pure fact and not opinion. I say if he has seen snaps back there before then why not use him this year?

Our country won't go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won't be any America because some foreign soldiery will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race.
