Double teams are usually reserved for veteran defensive linemen who have both the physical presence and a multitude of pass-rushing moves to beat an offensive lineman in different ways. 
 
With that said, you can imagine Issac Gross’ surprise when Auburn came out and put double teams on the undersized but quick freshman defensive tackle.

After losing both starting offensive tackles from the 2011 season, Bradley Sowell to graduation and Bobby Massie to the NFL, Ole Miss entered the off-season searching for an offensive lineman that could come in immediately and contribute.

Enter Pierce Burton. 

The 6’7,” 290-pound offensive tackle from City College of San Francisco signed with Ole Miss over Florida and was one of Hugh Freeze’s first big statement wins on the recruiting trail.

Defensive Lineman Robert Nkemdiche

Nkemdiche is undoubtedly the top player in the state of Georgia and will most likely be ranked as the top player in the entire country in 2013. He stands at 6’5,” 271 pounds, and runs a 4.6 40-yard dash. He recorded 19 sacks and, on the other side of the ball, rushed for 528 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior at Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga. Nkemdiche is a physical freak who could play defensive end, defensive tackle or linebacker in a 3-4 scheme at the next level. While Alabama is thought to be his early leader, Ole Miss signed his older brother, Denzel, in the 2011 signing class.

Still was the first commitment the Rebels received for the 2012 class as he committed April 21. At his current size, he projects to play at guard at the next level and should be a good one. In addition to Ole Miss, Still claims offers from Tulane and Memphis.

At the conclusion of this past Ole Miss athletic year, there was an overwhelming feeling of disappointment and anger. With the Rebel fan base rapidly growing frustrated with the administration and wanting some change, a small group of people have taken action to help give the fans a voice.

Enter Forward Rebels, a new organization created by local alumni who are tired of the status quo and want to give other fans a chance to voice their frustrations in an organized manner.

Seattle:
Seattle had all the momentum in the world after sneaking into the playoffs and then defeating defending Super Bowl Champions the New Orleans Saints in the first round. However, if anything, their draft ruined that momentum and may have even set them back. Their major need going into the draft was a quarterback, and they passed on TCU quarterback Andy Dalton with the 25th pick in the first round to take Alabama offensive lineman James Carpenter.
