If you scroll down to peek at the defensive end depth chart at Boise State, you will find a bunch of young'uns and old Beau Martin and that's it. No more experience to be heard of other than Martin's two years of experience and everyone else's one. With Kharyee Marshall graduating and Demarcus Lawrence chasing NFL riches, the defensive end position is suddenly wafer thin and babyfaced, so you would be correct to assume a player like David Moa will help out immensely. Given the rate at which Boise State threw defensive ends into the fire last year, Moa may even be helping out sooner rather than later.

Small. There has been no buzz about Moa-to-Washington other than the constant hum of paranoia from the message boards where everyone with a job at Boise State is a candidate for the same one at Washington. This isn't too far from the truth, but still, take the hum with a grain of salt.
