It looks like our first offseason happy talk meme has emerged. Dawg fans, say hello to offensive line depth. No, really, they’re serious.
“We’ve just got tons of guys that can play multiple positions,” Andrews said. “We can almost form three-deep offensive lines now, which is something we haven’t been able to do in the past. With two guys out, especially, that’s a good bit of linemen. So we definitely have a lot of depth.”
It’s been so long since I’ve seen anything resembling quality depth on the o-line that you’ll have to pardon me if I wait on that until I get visual confirmation. (And if the line looks better on G-Day, is that because depth has improved, or because the defense is regrouping? Beats me.) I will say that I do hope Beard is a viable option to start at left tackle, because that will allow Friend to shift Gates back inside where he clearly belongs.
I’m sure we’ll hear a lot more about this between now and opening night at Clemson.
