Fans shouldn’t be too worried though, the program signed six defensive linemen in its 2018 class.Picou played just three games his senior season. The switch to a 3-4 system means less defensive lineman on the line of scrimmage, but they’re also expected to take on and get through more blocks.
Picou played in just 6 games last year as a junior.
