Gholston is Perfect For Bowles’ Defense1 min read
DE William Gholston’s time in Tampa has been lackluster to say the least. Although he is very good defending the run, he generates almost no pass rush whatsoever. Now we have a new defensive coordinator and with him a new defensive scheme.
Todd Bowles has made no bones about it, this defense will most likely be a 3-4 base defense, as opposed to the 4-3 base they have used more than 20 years. It is good news for Gholston, who at 6’6 280 lbs, is a perfect fit on this new defensive line.
Gholston is strong and athletic for his size, and he will definitely be a thorn in RBs sides as Gholston will close up the running lanes. He will be something to keep your eyes on this season. Look for Gholston to get a lot of playing time at LE.
