Obviously we need CP's blocking on the edge against VT so hope he is good to go. Also curious if he gets any snaps at BB in practice?
I'm curious as to why you think it's so easy to move players to positions that they don't play and then expect them to be productive on Saturdays?
I see what you are getting at in terms of blocking but it takes just one play for Laskey to go down but the same could be said for any of the A Backs as well. I think there is a drop off from Days to Conners and that is why Days has stayed there. Unless they think Leggat can come in and step up at any time I can see the move of Days back to A back but that would be a tough place for a true freshman to get his first playing time at full speed. Not saying he cannot do it but rather it would be much more difficult to become acclimated to the speed of the game.Days will get snaps at AB IMO . TZ and BJ aren't getting it done with blocking on the inside. Andrews is rusty per PJ. Make good sense to see SD at AB. He's not contributing at BB as long as ZL is healthy.
Laskey actually took himself out at one point. He was very active blocking , carrying the ball and running routes. Keep em fresh when there isn't much drop off.17 carries but how many times was he tackled because we ran the TO, ran routes, or blocked for passing plays. It takes a toll on you. I can see SD playing both positions this game. I can see SD coming in at ABack just to block on certain plays as well. You are most likely right that SD is taking snaps at both. I just see a bigger reward spelling ZL on a couple of series. Sometimes you can see something from the sideline that you couldn't see in the game and use it on the next series. I see both ZL and SD as weapons at bback. I don't see a problem rotating them at bback and SD at a and B back.
I think the closest Perkins came to starting at B Back was when he was behind Lyons in the spring of 2011 but Sims passed both of them. We probably THOUGHT he would be the guy but that never panned out.IIRC was he not a starter at that position at one time? Thanks for being snark though. I guess I think too much of our players' abilities to adapt to playing different positions. My bad.
