Compares Spring '12, to Fall '12, to Spring '13.
Something that struck me is Jack Tyler (225) seems a bit small to be banging with Bama and DJ Coles prolly needs to lose some weight (238)
This is a pretty cool setup! D. Manning up to 174 I like that even more. Just hope it's that good weight
Gayle looks like he means business
A Smith will make an impact, this year? He's got some serious talent in front of him this year, is he #4 in rotation? Does Teller get in that #4 spot? We need both to get experience this year IMO, I don't think Teller is a 5 year college player, play him.
Manning up to 174 is GREAT! On his frame that is putting in some good work, another 5 lb's in the summer and he is at a very good weight.
It looks like most of the lesser body weight guys add weight over the summer, a few more lbs on some of those guys will help.
I agree. Gayle was what, 215-220 coming out of HS? He's put on a ton of mass and I don't think his body had the frame to carry close to 270 and still be a fluid athlete. Plus he's always had lingering ankle problems that I'm sure will be helped by dropping a few lbs.
All of our linebackers are small.
After watching our slow asses play horribly the first 6 games last year...I'm Ok with smaller and faster
I never understand that argument about someone should play just because he might not be around for 5 years. If he's good enough to play his first year and get good minutes, then the coaches will play him. If not, he won't play. It shouldn't be about future potential.
Yeah people said Tweedy was to small but he balled out last year.
Respect with the Tech
Overall very pleased with the weights. I like the weight range for most of our OL; big, but not overweight.
I'm not as concerned with the LB weights as some. As a whole it's a small group, but the guys who lost weight are only down a few pounds (which they can easily add), and almost all of the freshmen from last year gained nicely.
I also actually like JCC's lower weight. Hopefully it makes him even more elusive; he can be a dynamite player in space if the new staff can figure out a way to get him the ball. It's a crime we didn't target him in the passing game more often last year after he was so prolific in that role in HS.
I agree, especially when we're talking about linemen. I think it's a lot easier to assess NFL future with a RB or corner; not so much with linemen.
Tweedy was a tackling machine.
Yes, if he is able to get good minutes -and- the player is obviously going to be a stud and doesn't need a year of RS weights and learning.
I never want to trade a year of True Freshman play for a 5th year when many kids will be real contributors...What if we had Whitley last year? Was his Freshman year with 8 tackles worth not having a him in a year he would have been 1st team all ACC or better in 2012? He wasn't a can't miss Pro guys out of HS and never came across as a 4 and out guy. We did have Friday as a 5th year, and he was great, what if we UVA'ed his Shirt in his freshman year because he had 4*? Exum RS-ed, and now we have him in a position to be one of our all time best type players....we could have burned his shirt for some Special teams plays, and it would have costed us dearly this year. Look at UVA and why they are always young....they burned Reynold's shirt for some ST play as a freshman, he would be their best player this year if he had a 5th year....but of course they do it with everyone.
Our RS Seniors:
18 D.J. Coles 2 3 SE 6' 4" 238 r-Sr. Maidens, Va. Goochland
42 J.R. Collins 3 DE 6' 2" 252 r-Sr. Stafford, Va. Brooke Point
24 Tariq Edwards 2 LB 6' 2" 232 r-Sr. Cheraw, S.C. Marlboro County
1 Antone Exum 3 CB 6' 1" 224 r-Sr. Glen Allen, Va. Deep Run
99 James Gayle 3 DE 6' 4" 253 r-Sr. Hampton, Va. Bethel
22 Tony Gregory 3 TB 6' 0" 183 r-Sr. Virginia Beach, Va. First Colonial
89 Cody Journell 2 PK 6' 0" 181 r-Sr. Ripplemead, Va. Giles
74 Andrew Miller 3 C 6' 4" 293 r-Sr. Bassett, Va. Bassett
3 Logan Thomas 3 QB 6' 6" 257 r-Sr. Lynchburg, Va. Brookville
58 Jack Tyler 3 LB 6' 1" 225 r-Sr. Oakton, Va. Oakton
76 David Wang 2 OG 6' 2" 291 r-Sr. Ashburn, Va. Stone Bridge
66 Tyrel Wilson 3 DE 6' 1" 225 r-Sr. Hampton, Va. Hampton
Highlights for me:
1. Motley +25, just in case he switches pos that weight will be nice
2. Edmunds +15 pain train
3. Coles 238? #fatty gotta drop some weight
4. Dakota Jackson 270? #bigboy
5. Taraschke up to 296 +26 since arrival
6. Conte up to 294 +29 since arrival
7. A Smith up to 300, +30 since arrival
8. Tookes/Manning both 175, where they can at least get by on a college field
Can Motley move to defense yet? 6'3" 220. Started at 195.
+1 for Cliff Notes
Alston Smith's weight surprised me. IIRC he tweeted he was 17% body fat not too long ago, so I assumed that he lost some weight. 17% body fat at 6'2 300 lbs is insane. Kid has good genes.

Tweedy was an incredible player for the amount of snaps he played. I never understood why that guy didn't play more. He was a great open field tackler, special teams ace, and was a tackling machine when he played Whip.
He was flat out better than JGW.
"@MotleyKrewww Damn, people still talkin and thinkin I'm switch positions. Ima QB. Straight up."
Tweedy could have been Cody Grimm 2 but the coaches missed it. Our run D was instantly solved when they started playing Tweedy and he was awesome at blitzing the QB as well.
HUGE miss to not have him starting the past two years at least.
You're an NFL safety and a college QB. Make some money and make the switch!
Czy said he lives in the weight room. I imagine it's good weight!!
The extra weight for Augie, Alston, and Manning is huge. Hopefully Manning keeps his mobility and motivation.
Im enthused by your enthusiasm on teller. hope you know your ish and are not jusy yapping
