Or how about this, since Guard is an easier and less cerebral position to play for a true Freshman (if Nick Harris can do it, Murao can do it) lets phase Wattenberg out by putting Mele at Center and Murao at RG where he will often have help from Mele with double teams.
LT: Jaxson Kirkland, LG: Henry Bainivalu, OC: Matteo Mele, RG: Myles Murao, RT: Victor Curne
This is the exact scenario that I want.I would also love to see Ale get some playing time as well. If he can reach his potential he will be a first round draft pick. Big “if” though.
I think Ale will deserve to be rotated in during games when UW really wants to pound the rock on someone. Bummed we won’t get to see the progress he’s made in the past year this Spring. Dude is massive and strong as an ox. I would also like to see Troy Fautanu used as a blocking TE like the Seahawks do with lineman sometimes. They gotta find a role for him and get him on the field somehow if he’s going to have to wait behind Kirkland at LT.
