4/13/17: Vea was a load at the point of attack for Washington in 2016. He totaled 39 tackles with 6.5 tackles for a loss, five sacks, one force fumble and two passes batted. Vea has a serious combination of size, length, strength, and quickness at the point of attack.
He is a my #1 DT/NT going into the season. A true double team beast

X factor coach (besides Nolan) that we aren't mentioning here .... Ryan Nielsen. He has been known to get the most out of his players, while stressing technique & discipline.

Rankins, Onyemata, Davison ... all young guys with high ceilings & Ryan teachings could be huge for our D line development.

So can we overcome it, yes, but I don't see anything positive about it. It is what it is, as they say, but that doesn't mean I need to find the good. We just need to look at what we have and discuss if it will be enough etc.
I understand your thinking. I thought so myself initially. However, after some reflection I realized that giving Davison and Onyamata extra reps should increase their situational awareness and make them much more effective under our new D-line coach.

Rankins will not produce like Fairley immediately but he can grow into the position with a clear cut and defined role for the future. Now we can draft that true double team player to play a NT type of position(I say that because I think a nose tackle plays a 3-4).

Also, with change comes the opportunity for growth and evolution. I agree with Danno's pastor. God doesn't close a door without opening a window.

Think of adding Vea to that line next season and we're set for a while up front for a few years.

I like Tyler Davison, but he's actually about the same size as Sheldon Rankins. Heck, Onyemata is as well. Vita Vea at 6-4, 340 lbs sure would look good clogging up the middle!

Christian Wilkins (Clemson) ain't bad either.

Agreed and he is a top 5 IMO. If he continues to develop mare of a well rounded skill set and consistency I will be happy to move him up the board.

Right now it is upside on most draft boards which means he has not done it yet but the odds he will are good.

he gets the keep a close on him going into the season

But that is like saying how beneficial it would be for Chase Daniel if Drew went down because he'd get extra reps. I mean yeah it would be really good for Chase, I guess, but is it better for the team?
