We had a couple nice, long interviews with DE Coach Lemanski Hall and RB Coach CJ Spiller on Monday. Hall has an embarrassment of riches at defensive end with XT, KJ, Myles Murphy and Justin Mascol all returning plus Denhoff, Swint and Greg Williams. He should be able to rotate as many as 6 guys in any given game and have fresh legs rushing the passer in the 4th quarter!
Meanwhile, CJ has only had Phil Mafah and some walk-ons practicing this spring with both Will Shipley and Kobe Pace out. He's been very impressed with "Mafah Man," as he calls him, though, and he told me that Mafah has been catching the ball extremely well and has done a great job in pass protection. Also, Shipley and Pace, though not practicing, have been very engaged in the meeting room and in film study. CJ also shared some thoughts with me on his experience at the Hall of Fame dinner last December. It's hard to believe his little girl is now 16!
