The Maneater is the actuall newspaper at Mizzou. Pre-season writeup: Quarterback: The Missouri Tigers have 2 sophomores, and 1 senior. So. James Franklin will be leading the team this year. Franklin is a tall and strong quarterback who has yet to prove himself to the football world. If Franklin can't step up to the pressure, So. Ashton Glaser may be called up. Half Back: RS Senior DeVion Moore will lead the tigers at HB this year. The tigers are deep at HB, but not with talent, with relative mediocrity. So. Henry Josey or Ju. Kendial Lawrence could take over the reigns. Full Back: Senior Beau Brinkley is the only FB for Mizzou. His touches will be limited and usually only to surprise the D in short yardage situations. Wide Receiver: Junior TJ Moe is going to the #1 target for Franlkin this year. Moe had a spectacular sophomore year and hopes to continue his performance this year. His goal is to follow in the footsteps of former Mizzou Tigers' Denario Alexander and Jeremy Maclin. Senior Jerrell Jackson, Brandon Gerau and Wes Kemp will all be solid targets since none is better than any other. The Tigers will have many targets the entire year that can do damage. Tight End: Senior Michael Egnew is going to be the start TE this year. At 6'6" and 245 lbs he is a big target and will also provide solid blocking. Offensive Line: Mizzou has a solid offensive line, but could be weak in certain areas. Defensive Line: Mizzou does not have the greatest defensive line, in the past they have had some great players, but with the loss of Aldon Smith to the NFL they will have to be better than expected. Linebackers: Linebackers are slightly better than the defensive line, but not by much. The Tigers Defensive could be what hurts them this year, which is a surprise as last year they were one of the top defenses in the Big 12 and the nation. Cornerbacks: The only really good cornerback is RS Junior Kip Edwards. They rest of the Cornerbacks are mediocre. Continuing the bad preseason defensive outlook. Safeties: Senior Kenji Jackson will be a great SS this year. Kicker: Mizzou has a strong kicker in RS Senior Grant Ressel. He could be very important if Mizzou can't score touchdowns and has to settle for field goals. Punter: Not a hugely important position, but RS Junior Trey Barrow will be in control of pinning the other team deep this season.
