Fall camp continues
It was D-Line Day on the microphones
[Frazier] joined the team last July and made a strong first impression in camp, but his body broke down midway through the season. He called last year’s quick climb up the depth chart "fool’s gold."
"It led me to believe I was something that I really wasn’t," he said. "My body didn’t hold up."
A year later, Frazier is leaner, still at 255 pounds and the leading candidate to replace Brady in the starting lineup.
"One thing I know is he can run," Shipp said. "He loves to play and has great passion for the game."
Augusta, also known as 'The Juggernaut', said he checks in at 370 pounds currently. That’s his heaviest, according to his own estimation.
The senior from Peoria, Ill., said Missouri’s staff wants him at 345 pounds, but he’s put on more muscle and thinks he’s handling his current weight well, saying his stamina "...has actually improved a lot." He’s the latest in a string of players who’ve said they have gained weight and strength with Roark Cutchlow and the new strength staff.
"I’ve been working with the strength coaches, getting my heart in better shape than it used to be," he said.
An insurance policy at kicker
One other defensive line note from that KC Star piece: Josh Moore has apparently dropped some bad weight and is currently playing end. That makes some sense, since that is more the position of need at the moment.
