With all of the hand wringing about the need to improve our defense I have not felt enough urgency in the recruitment of defensive tackles. We are very young at DE with RVB backed up by three freshmen: Black, Wilkins and Paskorz, but at least we have numbers there and I believe Zettel wiil come in at that position. At NT we have MM the Beast and then a great void as Big Will is not ready for prime time. Even should Campbell develop as we all hope that would still leave only Richard Ash as depth and he seems to be workout-challenged given the huge amount of weight that he gained in the past year. The only quality NT recruit that we have a good shot at is Darian Cooper, and I think he is a good one, but if he does not see the Blue Light we will be very thin at NT in the post-Martin world (make that 2012 MM... please!!).
At the 3 Tech we are also extremely thin with undersized freshman Terry Talbott and injured walk-on Heninger as the likely replacements for the meh duo of Banks and Sagesse. I believe that Chris Rock is slated for that spot as well, but it seems imperative that we recruit one more big body in this class - Branden Jackson's team mate Delvon Simmons would fit the bill.
