He is probably waiting for final cuts to see what numbers open up. If he likes numbers ending in 3s, he could be waiting for Dobbs' 83. Dobbs is fighting for a spot against Dial, Jerrod-Eddie, and Kaleb Ramsey. I actually think Dobbs will be the odd man out. The D-staff preferred Jerrod-Eddie last year, and Dial, I think, can play DE and DT. We currently have Justin Smith, Ray McDonald, Glenn Dorsey, Ian Williams, Tank Carradine. You would think they keep another 2.
