Which SR do we miss the most next year?
Take Lock out of the equation.

We are going to lose several key pieces and wondering which one you guys think will be the toughest to replace.

T Hall
E Hall
TBJ
Pendleton
Adams
Blanton
?

To me, the two hardest guys to replace will be Terez and EMan. We just don’t have a lot of proven talent at LB so somebody needs to take a huge leap forward. We did get a lot of young WR worked into the rotation but I’m not sure any of those guys are on Hall’s level. Of course, it took Hall awhile to get there also.

TBJ is a great player, but I think we’ll be good at DT with Elliott and Whiteside starting. I think Cook (maybe Buford) and White can step right in for the departing OL. Blanton was a team leader and a talented player, but Parker and the return of Swinson should have us in good shape at TE.

I'm gonna miss Hilton bouncing off of tackles. I'm gonna miss Brown on the injury list. And have we ever had a punter built like Fatony?

But seriously, E Hall is my choice.

Lock and E Hall

Of the top 4 Terez will be the easiest to replace. Bolton played most of the Alabama game and looked solid. He also was in a lot in the Bowl game.

Bolton has a LONG way to go before he’s on THall’s level.

I think the dual quarterback will do better than Drew Lock because he will be able to do the moving around to avoid sacks and make first downs that Drew Lock could not do in some games this year and the last play in the bowl game proved it. I am very happy with the new quarterback that will surprise many people next year. He is perfect for Missouri system due to lack of talents in some areas so running around shall help move the chains. also he shall help score more touchdowns in key situation that drew could not do this year.

I have seen more from Bolton than the backups on the OL and at WR.

DT is a concern due to losing 3 seniors. Elliott will be good, but it’s a position short in depth.

I thought White played very well in his limited exposure. I also think Cook is a very physical run blocker, but he did have some penalty problems.

I really didn’t see Bolton make very many plays. I know the coaches really like him, but he had a lot of freshman moments. THall is a great leader and a talented, physical guy who is going to play on Sundays. Bolton is a long way from that. I actually think Miller is physically better but the light doesn’t seem to be coming on for him.

Terez Hall or Beckner. They were leaders that stayed out of trouble and were coachable.

I think it’s either Beckner or Hall. You can’t miss a guy who couldn’t stay healthy. Its hard to say you’ll miss a guy who wasn’t on the field most of the year. Our offense is fine. Lock and Hall were big against teams that weren’t very good. Hall would’ve been dynamic against good teams but once again didn’t play against them so you can’t miss what you don’t have. Having a true RPO QB will improve our offense to have a true threat of tucking the ball and picking up yards with his feet. All the questions for me are on defense.

Mizzou’s record with Hall vs without is really stunning the last 2 years.

I think we will learn over the next few years how much leadership TBJ provided behind the scenes. I believe we will end up missing him the most.

I would agree on E Hall, especially given how obviously we missed him when he was not there. But, man, he was not there A LOT.

Plus, I don't know if the offense would miss a WR like Hall as much when the QB is not Lock. He had a special arm with a good feel for long throws.

TBJ on defense because the lack of depth.

With the offense having a dual threat QB it is hard to say. The deep threat of Hall will not be something the team will need as much.

The 2018 team Blanton doesn’t seem like a choice that would make a difference. The 2019 new offense a blocking TE will make a big difference with a Dual Threat QB.

Adams and Pendleton can be replaced. I was disappointed with the play of Adams most of the year. I really thought he would be much better. The rest of the line played how I thought they would play. I really liked Castillo at center, but I might be biased because my kids go to Webb and I watched him play in High School.

I don't think you are biased. Castillo has been rock solid at center, carrying on the long run of good centers at MU. Think he may be better, getting more push on a regular basis with his larger size.

You're missing a guy.

Palmore.

I think losing Palmore, Beckner, and T. Hall is going to affect our run defense more than people realize.

Why did the Athlon site picked Missouri #20 in the way too early 2019 ranking? Last year Missouri was not mention in any site! I am wondering why? I do believe people are seeing that Barry Odom and Dooley is going to make Missouri an even better team than this year. I just do not see Missouri flopped next year or not be ranked at the end of the year and the final poll.

Yeah, Palmore is a loss. Again though, I like Elliott and Whiteside at DT. That’s very solid. Thompson and Daniels are both mature players who can provide some depth.

Definitely agree on T Hall though. He’s going to be very hard to replace.

Kelly Bryant is going to be huge improvement at quarterback because he could do things that Drew Lock failed to do in some of the games that Missouri lost that could have been won if Bryant was the quarterback. That is why Missouri is going to be better next year and win more games net year too! Odom is going to his 4th season next year. His team is finally getting the respect from some expert in the ranking for next year. The key is Odom got to keep recruiting better every year to keep up with the rest of the SEC. Right now He is just a tad below some of the SEC teams.

What I mean by that is Missouri will be fine next year but the year after that he will have to pick up the recruiting and if he does that then he should be better than what Pinkel have done in that same time frame in their career. Winning does help with recruiting. I am wondering why Pinkel was not able to take advantage of that when he got his team in the top 10? I see Pinkel is not a very good recruiter and Barry Odom might be able to do better. So far he is showing he can get it done. Next year will be critical in coaching, wins, and recruiting. One last thing the fans got to be more supportive of Barry Odom and his staffs. That will surely help with bringing more interest in top recruits.

Palmore did really step up his game this season. A very pleasant surprise with his solid, consistent play.

We will still be in better shape at DT next season than DE. Right at the moment, we have Byers and nothing much otherwise.

Byers is a good DE. Great size with good speed. The bowl game reinforced we have NO D-ends with great speed. We had no pass rush or even pressure from the DE spot. Byers is quick for his size, but he is not pass rushing quick. I'm guessing the coaches planned/hoped Williams would develop into that guy for the team. He has not.

We NEED 2-3 D-ends that can get after the QB once again. Especially since we will probably need to hide the secondary again next season.
