It's great that The U has the Depth and Talent to be able to substitute our Defensive Line players as much as we do, but does it hurt their Draft Prospects?

Does any of our DL, play as many snaps as Bradley Chubb(NC State), Sam Hubbard(Ohio State), Josh Sweat(FSU), or Trevon Young(Louisville) who are all projected 1st round picks by McShay?

I get why Chubb is a 1st rounder his stats are ridiculous but Thomas, McIntosh, Harris, Jackson have comparable stats in TFL, & sacks, to the others that are mentioned but probably play half the snaps that the others play.

The coaches rotate guys because fresh players play better than tired ones. The coaches are in the business of winning games not inflating their players' personal statistics. Pretty much every program rotates linemen like Miami does. It's not specific to us. Those other guys all sub out of games plenty.

As far as draft grades, no Miami lineman is consistently as good as Chubb. They certainly flash greatness but I cant' say any of those guys is consistently dominating.

The NFL doesn't draft on stats, it drafts on film. By putting guys in situations that fit their skill set and doing so when they have more juice in the tank, helps their film be better and more consistent.
