At 6-4/335, Proctor has the type of frame that puts him in line with other former offensive linemen who have gone on to the next level. However, his strongest asset may be in his versatility as he’s capable of playing multiple spots on the offensive line.

Sooners Seem To Be Swinging For The Fences With Defensive Coordinator Hire

Grinch is a bit of a better choice, in my opinion. He’s both experienced and young (still under 40). Even more important is the type of experience that he has. Before landing at Ohio State he served as Mike Leach’s defensive coordinator, at Washington State, from 2015-17.
