That’s a position that puts a premium on raw talent. Guys that get to the QB get drafted. We don’t have those guys.
We play a NFL style; every NFL team has guys that can pressure with 4 at least some of the time. College isn’t like that. You’re gonna have a bunch of effort guys at DL if you’re a team like IL, NW, PU, etc. You gotta blitz to get pressure unless you can run the Chase Young types out there.
Clark’s a replacement level guy. Lovie needs to make his buddies like Gil Byrd and Ligashesky do something in recruiting instead of relying on 2-3 guys to do all the heavy lifting. He’s never figured out that all the coaches have to be at least “good enough” recruiters.
Was absolutely one of our better recruiters, but the DL left a lot to be desired based on play.
The #Dolphins are hiring an assistant from the college ranks: Illinois DL coach Austin Clark is joining Miami and will coach the outside linebackers, source said. Just 30 years old, Clark is considered a rising talent in the coaching world. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 9, 2020 .
