Training camp started today for Lance Leipold’s Bulls but there will be a new face joining the team in graduate transfer defensive tackle Remaine Douglas. Douglas earned 3 letters at Louisiana Lafayette under head coach Mark Hudspeth, appearing in 32 games in his career. Douglas has also played for current UB assistant coach Tim Edwards.
Douglas is listed at 6-3, 303 pounds, making him an immediate fit in the Buffalo defensive tackle rotation. Douglas had 13 tackles and 2 for loss last season, both career highs, for the Ragin’ Cajuns after missing the final 7 games of the 2014 season due to injury.
Douglas isn’t a flashy player by any means and won’t blow up the stat sheet but with his size and experience he can be a productive member of the Buffalo defensive line. Douglas will likely remain on the interior and rotate with Chris Ford and Justin Brandon lining up over the A-gap. Douglas will be at his best when he is able to eat up blocks from the center and guard allowing Buffalo’s linebackers a clear lane to either the quarterback or to the ball carrier.
Douglas is a Florida native originally hailing from Coral Springs, just outside of Fort Lauderdale.
