 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Historically, whenever the UTEP football team has changed defensive schemes and coordinators, the idea was to find a better way to hide the defensive line. In that way, the offseason hiring of new coordinator Bradley Dale Peveto represents a radical new direction for the Miners. A year after landing a load of new talent on the defensive line to compliment veteran star defensive end Praise Amaewhule, UTEP is looking for ways to get its defensive front to the front and center.

They are building around the line, not away from it. "It's hard to find d-linemen," coach Dana Dimel said. "I'm excited about the development of our defensive linemen, how fortunate we've been. Now that we have those top, marquee players, you want to see a Jadrian Taylor develop, (Kelton) Moss had a good year to compliment Keenan (Stewart) and Praise. "What we're working on now is developing that second group." That's because the first group is now so proven, starting with Amaewhule. Always a prodigious talent, he broke through as a sophomore last season, getting seven sacks in eight games while earning second-team All-Conference USA. And suddenly there was talent alongside him, as a trio of first-year junior college transfers in end Jadrian Taylor and tackles Keenan Moss and Kelton Stewart gave UTEP punch in the front that had been missing for decades. Amaewhule is still listed as a sophomore, but he's a leader now and sees the transformation across the line. - El Paso Times
