Default Can Hoke play Defensive End?

He has got to be better at DE than what we are rolling out there. He has a good motor and can hold up at the point of attack.

Maybe he can, maybe he can't, but he can't be any worse than Eason.

There were a lot of people asking this after Eason played earlier in the year... Kirschke has filled in better than Eason did but I would still like to know whether Hoke can or not... My guess is no. He is a speedier NT but defensive tackle and defensive and are surprisingley very different. Not as much in the 3-4... But I still think you have to stick with the natural DE in Kirschke... Maybe give Hokie some time though.

I would like to see Hoke there as well, but it could be true that he would not transition as well as many of us hope. All I know is something has to be done because out run D has gotten pretty poor.
