I feel like Wattenberg is a given with his experience level. I also think sliding him to C makes sense on a few levels, primarily giving Murao a redshirt year and then a wide open center spot the next year. So I think the OL looks something like this:
LT – Mele
LG – Curne
OC – Wattenberg
RG – Kirkland
RT – Fautanu
Bainivalu plays the versatile 6th man role with Ale strictly an OG backup.
You think Fautanu is ready? I don’t disagree, just asking.
No idea but I sure hope so. I like Curne a lot more inside than outside. We need some maulers at OG and Curne could be one. Also, I think Fautanu is probably the most talented guy in the OL corps. All this assumes he’s healthy – I have no idea what his status is coming off last year’s injury.
