2012 Roster Shape
2012 Outlook: Probably Finished
The Longhorns looked at some other tackles, but didn't evaluate any higher than Brown, one of the state's top overall players and one of the country's top defensive tackles. Both Boyette and Norman are upside picks, and both have the ability to develop into big-time players. The emergence of players like Dorsey, Howell, Whaley and Jackson means that they'll have that time to develop. There is one player to keep an eye on: JUCO transfer Brandon Moore. With the Longhorns losing Kheeston Randall after the season, Texas might decide to offer Moore to bring in another experienced player. Watch this position in the offseason. With so many bodies, it wouldn't be a shock to see a player or two switch positions or transfer off the team altogether.
