Kansas State is set to have one of the most dominant lines in the Big 12 this year.
Last October, the future of the line took a big hit when Anthony Payne transferred to Missouri State.
Would Payne have made a difference on the 2019 defensive line dominance Kansas State is destined to portray?
I would argue yes. Payne was a heralded recruit when he signed in 2016:
And, even though he didn't see the field much in 2017, prompting his departure, the film doesn't lie. Payne would, at a minimum, be excellent depth for the Wildcats this year, were he still on the roster.
