VM: Drew, how has spring practice been going for you?
DB: It's been going good. Since I played all last season on the scout team it's different to come out here and be able to compete for a job.
VM: So do you think you are going to get some playing time this year?
DB: Yes, I think so. I'm trying to find a position at guard or tackle; I've been playing both all spring. I think if I do my techniques and everything today I have a good shot at getting some playing time.
VM: What has Coach Caldwell been telling you?
DB: He's telling me I've been doing a lot better, that I'm showing a lot of improvement from fall. He's expecting some big things from me.
VM: What about the other guys on the offensive line; we know about the regular starters but who are some of the other guys that could get some playing time?
DB: I think Ryan Custer, now that he's back on offense, I think he and Eames are going to mix it up a lot at the left guard spot. Drew Gardner and Ryan Vance, they are both competing pretty hard for the right guard spot to back up Merritt.
