New Staff Moving Players Around

The new ULM coaching staff is already shaking things up on both sides of the football. Several players have made the switch to new positions.

Aaron Munoz

Old Position - QB

New Position - DB

Analysis - This is a good move for the Warhawks. Munoz has exceptional speed (4.6) and quickness and should adapt to his new position quite well. With the loss of several defensive backs this will give Munoz a chance to get on the field quicker.

Ken Dorsey

Old Position - LB

New Position - DE

Analysis - Ken burst onto the scene back in 2008 as he worked his way into the ULM lineup as a true freshman. A broken leg however ended his season early and he has been working his way back ever sense. Dorsey has bulked up to 260 pounds and will now use his speed and quickness at the DE position.

With an already thin cast on the defensive line, Dorsey will have a legit shot at a starting position.

Jyruss Edwards

Old Position - RB/Ath

New Position - DB

Analysis - Interesting move here as Edwards came highly recruited as an big play offensive threat with exceptional speed (2,200 rush yards as a JR in high school).

However with the depth issues at defensive back and Edwards standing 6'0 tall, it's an ideal move to try him as a DB.

Emmanuel Jefferies

Old Position - TE

New Position - DL

Analysis - Jefferies was touted as a fluid big man with a ton of upside at the TE position but with 5 players fighting for balls this is a good move IF Jefferies can bulk up his weight (6'4 237).

Brandon Hardy

Old Position - RB

New Position - DB

Analysis - Hardy was the odd man out in the backfield but with his skills and size (5'10 198) he will have a unique blend of speed and power at the defensive back position.
