Is Ivory ready to man the middle full time?
And if he goes down w/ an injury is his backup serviceable?
Seems there's not a proven beast to nail down the nose spot like there has been ever since 2008.
Lake needs to be ready to go.
Ivory played well when called upon this season and should step in nicely. Lake will be the back up and while he still has a way to go as far as technique, he has all of the physical tools to make an impact.

Lake is a beast. I've seen him in person. Has a lot of physical ability and upside. An offseason in the S&C program and coaching from Rumph/Smart/Saban will help him immensely. He was definitely one of the more underrated players in last year's recruiting class. Ivory has improved every year he's been here. He's faster and more athletic than people want to give him credit for. He's also played in a lot of big games spelling Jesse in certain situations. I'm also interested in seeing what Dalvin Tomlinson brings to the table.

Lake is a beast but woefully raw. not sure he's ready this year but I am not giving up on him being very good one day.
Interesting on Paige, will he be a nose or a 3? probably some of both. same for Tomlinson. i think Tomlinson can be a 3 or a 5 due to his quickness, he's not massive though.
Ivory is much better than people think, particularly against the run. he doesn't get moved much.
Lake has a huge upside. He came by to see me last Friday and appears to have no fat! Prolly close to 330 and has a definite attitude change about what is important, and how to accomplish it! The light has turned on imho!
