#41 Nick Padla
When the 2016 season ends we might find this to be low for Padla. In the spring Padla was third at right guard, however, the performance of Miguel Machado left much to be desired last season and Padla could see a move up the depth chart.
Not much to write about with Padla last season as he continued to work on technique and getting ready for his opportunity to show what he’s got.
WHY HE MADE THE COUNTDOWN
There is a chance that Padla could move up the depth chart at right guard with Brandon Clemons expected to earn the starting spot. As we stated above, Machado is a big question mark going into the season and if called upon he must step forward. If not, Mark Staten and Michigan State Spartans could very well look at the redshirt sophomore.
