2. Who replaces Vincent Taylor on the defensive line?
Last season the question was “who replaces Emmanuel Ogbah” and the answer was Vincent Taylor. Like Ogbah before him, the big nasty defensive tackle terrorized offensive coordinators, forcing them the account for him on every play. Texas’ kicker probably still has nightmares about big Number 96 coming through the line at him. Now that Taylor left for the NFL and fellow starter Motekiai Maile graduated, who will step up and be the next force upfront for Glenn Spencer? The young defensive ends and tackles all have skill and potential, which I look forward to seeing more of in Saturday’s Oklahoma State spring game. I particularly like DT Darrion Daniels, but can any of them step up and be THE GUY that opposing game plans focus on? Forcing a quarterback to make quick decisions would greatly help the young corners I mentioned above.
