    Facts. And to put that in perspective, La often has good production on the DL, many of whom have the size, athleticism, and frame for the OL. The problem is those guys play D. Louisiana food produces some big boys but it’s coaching them up. Maason Smith is 6’5 with long arms. Probably would make a fine LT but he’s gonna make a mint on that DLine. I am confident that with some training and focus La. could produce more OLine at the top level and not have to constantly go hunting for them or worry about the rare 5 star leaving to play for Saban.

    Off topic, but I know you guys remember 25-30ish years ago when the OLine was almost exclusively a white mans world...and this is not a racial issue...but I know for a fact where I’m from, there were some big corn fed white boys who didn’t play football because it interfered with hunting season, LOL. A farmer around my way had two boys my age who were 6’4 and 6’6 and slung hay bales like they were cereal boxes. Mean as all hell. No football. Great powerlifters, but no football.

    You couldn't be more right. Hunting and fishing is a religion in Louisiana and those big white boys would rather hunt and fish than eat

    I know DE stands for defensive end. What does the S stand for?

    So is the SDE lined up on the same side as the tight end?

    Yes, that’s the idea. I have no clue how it works if the formation is symmetrical though.

    Depends on the game plan, but they will plan to close one TE or the other, and usually the weak side end will line up inside of the TE they plan to "open", possibly dropping into coverage, while the strong side DE will "close" the other TE and line up on the outside, playing the run.

    The WDE is typically your pass rusher, and the SDE is typically playing the run.
