  • Ojomo to dt? Why not?

    First of all i hope Ojomo makes the team, 2nd the kid probably could play defensive tackle or you could put him in tucks spot and put tuck at dt, it wont really ruin rotation but why not JT played dt quite a bit last year they always switch it up, why not do that? this kid better make the team.

    Ojomo played DT at the U as well. He knows the position but is better suited on the outside. If a DE is getting moved to DT at all it would be Tuck

      Why? He will get plenty of reps at end so why not play to his strengths?

          positions are not interchangable like that.

          We have some guys who can lay DT in the nascar package(Tuck/ JPP) but that is only used on passing downs. What do you know about Ojomo's gap control? How about his ability to take on double teams? How is he at the point of attack These are some of the most important attributes for a Dt and his being able to pressure the QB from DE doesnt say anything about these attributes.

              Exactly! You would be taking from his strength. Defensive Tackles are supposed to suck up blocks and push the offensive line back and crush the pocket from the front to prevent lanes for running or passing while the ends swoop around. Ojomo is the athletic end who has the speed to get to the quarterback with as little interference from an Offensive Lineman or Tight-End as possible. Defensive Tackles are not sack machines and Ojomo would miss out.

                          All of our DE's are too small to play DT. Look at how long it took Canty to learn 3tech. Do you really want to put a rookie there who's too small to be there?

                            Bad idea. Ojomo's 270...he'd be giving up at least 40 pounds to whoever is lined up across from him in a small gap. The ball would get run down his throat.
