Last week there was snow on the ground in front of my home. Hey, it's Minnesota I knew what I was signing up for so I'm ok with the weather. It does, however, make the idea of "Summer Camp" seem a bit weird when I still have the kids snow gear hanging on the coat rack.
The Buffalo Coaching staff does not get to have a spring hangover. They are already planning for Camp Quinn and here is the two deep they will be working off of.
What jumps off the page:
Lets start with the log jam at tight end. Seems that Blockers were more desired than receiving threats fo Jimmy Gordon edged out Dennison. After that, however, there was no second chair.
Given that Alex Dennison proved to be a very effective tight end last season I take the crowded field for #2 to be a good thing for the positions depth.
Something similar happened at half back, except there is Taylor, Murie, and Potts all sitting at third. Potts is still not recovered from last years freak injury, no word as to when he will be ready.
UB Senior Natey Adjei will get a chance to use that breakout speed, sharing the starting spot with Marcus McGill.
The only big surprise on defense is two very undersized linebackers... Understandable since they were DB's last season.
Using DB's like this might be a step towards implementing the "Drop Linebacker" idea which got Tepper into some trouble at LSU.
Maybe he has finally found a player who truly is as effective at covering the pass as stopping the run. You know what momma always said "Jack of all trades means master of none".
