I'm pretty sure everyone agrees right now that the assumed starters on the D-Line next year are Frank Clark at WDE, Willie Henry at 3TDT, and Pipkins at NT. However, what about SDE? I know the candidates right now are Heitzman, Godin, Wormley, Strobel, but what about Taco Charlton? As a true freshman, when he's played he's' shown great poise and potential. Do you think there's any way Hoke/Mattison would switch him over to SDE? I think if the season were to start today that Clark-Henry-Pipkins-Charlton would be the best lineup right now.
