The UDFA class is pretty telling. You can see they're transitioning to a zone blocking scheme since Joe Madsen, Chris Hubbard, Nik Embernate and Ivory Wade are all fairly athletic lineman despite having some other warts to their games. No idea if any of them will stick but you can see the type of lineman they're targeting. Nice to have two athletic lineman like Pouncey and DeCastro to build around.
You can also see they want competition at that backup NT spot after Ta'amu's troubled first year with the team. NT Anthony Rashad White was one of their UDFA's and he's massive at 6'1" and 335 pounds. Omar Hunter was also signed as an UDFA. He was once highly touted at Florida but underwhelmed much of his career. Hebron Fangupo was claimed late last year off waivers.
