Defensive Line Shuffling

Maryland is already making some adjustments on the defensive line, a unit that looms as one of the more significant concerns at the start of camp.

Redshirt freshman Masengo Kabongo is going to give it a shot at the anchor position, and senior Jared Harrell will see if he can play defensive end.

“That’s the experiment right now,” Coach Ralph Friedgen said. “We are seeing if Harrell can play the end spot and Kabongo can play the anchor. If they can it and it helps us, fine – we’re going to get the two best players in, whoever they might be.”

If nose tackle Dion Armstrong does not become eligible, then A.J. Francis is in position to start at nose tackle. And senior Travis Ivey, of course, is expected to be the man at the other tackle position.

Are you more concerned with the defensive line or offensive line at this point? You can probably make a case for either one, but I think the defensive line may be more of an issue, at least at this point.

O-Line is more critical. It seems like the D-Line is gonna have a little help with all the blitzes that Brown is putting in place. If the O-Line can't block for Scott or Turner, it's gonna be a long season. I'm not as concerned as others about the O-Line cause it seems like the top performers from last year are still in place (Costa and Campbell). That said, if those 3 new starters don't work out, it's gonna be a tough year.
