Next year's rostered players

As you can see we have a few near the 300 lb range. These are old figures from February. Some has grown since then! Now add some true beefy 300+guys from the 2005 recruiting class and we will be settling in for 2006!

I agree 100%. We need to shore up the O-line with the 300+ linemen. If we can avoid constant 3 and outs then the the defense can survive with 270+ guys on the line.
This process will take a little time(2 years) to cycle in.

Yea I expcet to see some "widebodies" on the recruiting agenda this year especially since they have so many openings with all the seniors leaving. Signing time is almost here...

I would mind seeing us going out of state for some lineman - who wouldn't want to come to sunny south florida and play in paradise ;)

What is sad :( is all the OL we lost to injuries (season ending), quit the team, etc - the depth we had at one point. It's unfortunate how we lost them and rather hard to recover in such a short period of time.

It's a position that we will be thin next year as well.

We need to start bringing in more size. The way the game is now, coaches can't wait for players to add weight and strength. Look at all of the true freshmen that are playing around the country.

Looking at the list of players, we have only one good sized O-lineman at 6-6 290. We have a 300 pounder but he is only 6-1. On the defensive side of the ball, our biggest D-linemen are the same size as many LB's with one only 6-3 200 (safety size). The linebackers are also safety size. All of the DB's are very undersized. 5-10 170 doesn't cut it anymore. The big boys are bringing in 6-1 195lb CB's and 200lb+ safeties. Not to say that we can't win with undersized players however, to compete with the big boys, we need to recruit both size and speed. Hit the midwest for linemen and bring some beef to South Florida. GO OWLS!!!

You can run kitties, but you can't hide!!!

where's Nello Faulk on the list? this list isn't complete. Nello is 6'6" 260, with a great frame. he should easily gain 20lbs this offseason. What about Jarrid Smith? What about Antes Perkins, 6'4" 170 sophmore? What about Mike Fischetti, 6'3" 310 freshman. We have addressed the size on the line, these kids just need time to mature and fill out.

I'm curious to see the depth behind Embick and also at TE. Does anybody have any info on RB Anthony Heard? He was the only rivals.com player we landed and kept last year.

The list was last year recruiting class (23-players) - the players you mentioned where already on the roster.

Heard as went under the radar for the most part so far,
with many RB leaving that should change.

Depth for Embick, the OL will be a factor because it will become a very young line next year. Faulk as been great this year and will be interesting to see what happen if Guffey get's an year of eligibility granted.

TE - loss of C-Hill presents a problem at that position, if Dareus gets another year we should be ok. A freshman may have to step in.

WR - we have depth and talent, may lack in the expirence department

RB - we have depth and talent as well, could be some surprises there and Sanchez is returning.
