Keep the pocket clean
Boone is likely playing out of position at tackle instead of guard. However, he was dominated in a pure strength aspect by Patrick Jones and Rashad Weaver. Boone consistently was beat by the bull rush. Boone will need to do a much better job of anchoring against Georgia Tech to avoid giving up ground.
It is not all bad for the offensive line. Cole Bentley has been among the nation’s best offensive lineman, according to Pro Football Focus. Bentley has been playing strictly center this year after bouncing between guard and center in his first couple of years with the program.
With Robbie Bell also struggling, the team needs to find ways to put the offensive line in positions of success (especially if the group is a position of weakness).
University of Connecticut transfer Cam DeGeorge is another option for the Cardinals that Dwayne Ledford has gone on record to say he feels comfortable with playing as a starter at this point. If needed, DeGeorge can play tackle or the guard positions. If one of any of the positions struggle on Friday, expect to see DeGeorge get some reps potentially along with newcomers Trevor Reid and Kobe Baynes,
