Offensive Line: Short In Numbers
I don’t like only signing two offensive linemen in this class. I do like Bryce Goodner and Danijel Miletic, and considering the history of Vance Vice, I don’t see the point in getting caught up in their recruiting rankings (or lack thereof). Vice has a pretty good record of evaluation and development, and that record is good enough for me. I don’t worry about the quality of this class.
