Missouri opens spring football practice in just more than two weeks. Leading up to the first practice, PowerMizzou.com will give Tiger fans an in-depth look at the roster at each position. We will also have a series of articles highlighting some of the major storylines to follow this spring. Today, we take a look at the defensive line.
Major Spring Storyline: Topping the list has to be the health of Hamilton. Missouri just wasn't the same defense once he went down. Is he ready to go from the start of spring ball? In addition, the redshirt freshmen may hold the most intrigue. Ealy and Vincent are two of the most talked about players that ran the scout team last season. Are they ready to step in and contribute immediately?
Coming out of Spring: The starters seem fairly set. We would expect Foster, Vincent, Sam and either Malbrough or Ealy to be running second-team coming out of April. But again, the biggest storyline here happens when Richardson hits campus. Where does he play and how does that change things? Stay tuned.
