Dakota Walker: Back at Defensive End
Question: You're back at defensive end again. When did they move you back?
Answer: This week we just started this.
Question: Have Coach Spurrier and Coach Lawing talked to the defensive linemen about getting a better pass rush going?
Answer: We all know that we need to get more rush on the offense. They've discussed that, and that's what we're trying to fix now.
Question: Do you have a preference between playing linebacker and defensive end?
Answer: I don't care. I could play anything, so it doesn't really matter to me.
Question: What have the coaches told you as far as working into the rotation more in the second half of the season?
Answer: They've got me in a couple of packages, so we're going to be all right.
Question: What strengths do you feel you bring to the table on the football field?
Answer: I feel I'm a pretty good pass rusher coming off the edge and certain things like that.
Question: What have the coaches told you about adding weight to your frame at defensive end?
Answer: They really haven't talked about it because, at the same time, I'm still thinking I'm at outside linebacker, so whatever happens, happens. That's how it goes.
