A: He is doing well in the meetings. He's giving it his effort and playing hard. He's right there in the mix.
Q: Do you see a leadership role being exhibited by Shane McDermott and Brondon Linder?
A: All the time. They're very into being good, both mentally and physically and that's the whole tactic. If you can play football and really get into the mental aspect and work together up in the front, then you got it done. Both of those guys do an exceptional job at that.
Q: Malcolm Bunche is playing left tackle, which many argue is the most important position on the line. How's his progress?
A: Malcolm is trying to stay healthy. He had a little problem last year, but he's really a good player, he forced himself in the spring. So, all in all, I think a major thing for him is to stabilize, focus and play real hard because he has lots of ability. He's also working really well with Feliciano. I like that left side.
Q: Do you have a good idea who your starters are going to be for season?
A: Probably. I think one of the biggest surprises has been Ereck Flowers. Well, not really a surprise. That's usually what you get because he's not really a freshman since he came in on January. He knows his system…You can see he's being aggressive and he's jumping cadence more, and he's making plays more. Ben Jones and Jeremy Lewis are starting to come along too, so we're starting to develop some depth.
Q: Do you think Flowers might replace Seantrel Henderson?
A: [Flowers] is doing it now, though, but I don't know.
