Still time for Granger, McCoy
Gerald McCoy and DeMarcus Granger haven’t been around forever. It only seems like it. OU’s big defensive tackles have been cursed by high expectations. Been cursed by Tommie Harris. Harris was a big-time recruit who hit campus and immediately was ready to destroy opposing offenses. Granger arrived in 2005, McCoy in 2006, with much the same credentials as Harris. But both redshirted as freshmen, and while Granger had his moments last year, he was no Tommie Harris. No one else is either. Rick Bryan wasn’t. Tony Casillas wasn’t. Both played a decade in the NFL. Heck, Lee Roy Selmon, the greatest Sooner of them all, any position, was a backup defensive tackle as a freshman. Virtually all defensive linemen take time to develop. You can’t judge a d-lineman after one or two years. McCoy and Granger still have plenty of time to live up to their promise. THEIR promise. Not Tommie Harris’s.
