Default Xavier Thomas

What did you think of his play in the Orange White game?

Thought he played well. He is by far our second best (if not 1b) defensive end on the team. They keep talking about getting his weight down but I think that helps him establish the edge better. It may hurt a little on the pass rush side but as many coaches have eluded too, the push up the middle is of greater value in the quick passing game than the edge rushers. Distracting and rushing the qb is easier with disruption coming inside.
