QB - So (RS) Cody Kessler is battling with (RS) Jr Jesse Scoggins for the starting spot. It is a tight battle Cody has the arm and accuaracy to be a great qb but doesnt have the speed to get away from lineman chasing him or if the pocket collapses. Jesse on the other hand has the speed to escape if he is about to get sacked and he has a great arm but he is accuaracy making the coaches very fishy about him. Cody- 80 ovrll 65 speed 69 acc 85 thp 94 tha
Jesse tho 86 ovrll 83spd 94 acc 91 thp 82 , 3rd string Max Wittek is not to far behind himself could star nex year himself Max- 81 ovrll 77 spd 71 acc 88 thp
HB -Dillon baxter is ultimatly the Starter at rb with his speed and elusivness 91 ovrll 93 spd 99 acc 99 elusivness 91 btk 97 spin move. Freshman Sean Howell will get some carries too when baxter gets tired. 85ovrll
FB - Hunter simmons is the starter 89 ovrll 83 spd 88 acc 78run block 67 block
WR - This is an interesting group for us. this is one of our deepest positions. Sr Robert woods (95 OVR) and Jr George Farmer (86 ovrll) are the starters depth chart wise, but Jr (RS)Kyle Prater (84 OVR) can be consider 2a on the depth chart and certain 2 WR formations will be in the game. Victor Blackwell Soph is a great wr at the 4 has game breaking speed 92 spd 97 acc.
TE - Micheal Cox is the starter
O-Line - This is a young group, but they have a lot of potential. With the youth we lose that road grating ability, but hopefully they can open some holes and protect our Qb.
DE - So Alex Webb (82 OVR) and Sr Eddie Plantaric (84 OVR) are the ends, not spectacular pass rushers but excellent against the run. They are both preseason All-Americans.
DT - Soph Brett baker (84) and Antwaun Woods Soph 81 overall are the starters. They are very strong DTs (94 and 84 STR respectively), Christain heywards will be key in 3-4 sets while Jackson will be a factor in the pass rush. Jr (RS) Charles McDonald (84 OVR) will be in pass rushing situations.
ROLB - Hayes Pullard 84 ovrll is Junior (RS) is the starter
MLB - Will Andrew Senior (RS) 86 is the starter we have no backup
LOLB - Alan Darby 85 ovrll is the starter
CB - Nickell Roby 96 ovrll 93 spd 94 acc 99 pursuit 91 play recognition 99 man coverage
Torin harris 90 ovrll 96 spd 87 acc 95 pursuit 94 man coverage 92 zone coverage
FS - We're starting (RS) freshman Trey Foster (82 OVR) here. This guy is an absolute freak, 6'2" 182 with 92 SPD, 94 ACC, 83 tak, 82 zone coverage, 82 man coverage . We expect him to make a ton of plays this season.
SS - (rs) SR Hakeem Abdul 90 ovrll is starting .
This team is very young but still has a lot of talent that can compete with anyone. We will be running a new offense this season so expect to see a lot of guys catch the ball.
QB - Bryan Bennett- Redshirt Jr/ 87 Ovr. Looks to be the man in charge of Oregon's Spread No Huddle offense that they'll be running this year. His dual threat ability to run and pass will be a big asset for the Ducks this year as they look to improve on a disappointing season last year and hope to find themselves a spot in the Pac 12 championship game. If they make it there, Bryan will be the reason why.
RB- Lache Seastrunk- Redshirt Jr. 90 ovr. A few years back he thought about transferring to Baylor when he was behind Lamichael James on the depth chart. Lamichael is long gone and Lache is thriving. He will be the starting back and will get most of the carries on the ground. In the spread offense, most of his runs will be taken out of shotgun, so he should find several holes to run through in the spread.
RB- Kenny Bassett Redshirt Jr. 88 ovr. Kenny will not be the starter, but he will still receive his fair share of carries in this offense. With two half backs like this, the Ducks will probably run a lot of dual half back sets in their Shotgun 2 back formation. Kenny is just like Seastrunk, just a little slower but is a little more careful with the ball. Both players have to be accounted for though when they're in the game and can break a big play at any time.
WR- Josh Huff- Senior 91 ovr. The lone senior as far as impact players go on the offense. Josh will be a big time threat in the passing game and should have a great year with Bryan Bennett throwing him the ball. He will be his favorite target and the way he catches the ball, it only makes sense for him to be the go to guy in the passing game.
FS Isaac Dixon Redshirt Junior 95 ovr. Isaac will be the anchor of the defense and with good reason why. A 1st to 2nd round draft pick in most NFL mock drafts, this will most likely be his last season as Coach Shawn has already said that he will not be trying to persuade him to stay. Look for him to have a great year and I'm sure most quarterbacks will not test him in the passing game.
Offensively, the Oregon Ducks will be running a spread/no huddle this season, much like years past with a different twist to it. The personnel fits this offensive style and with a Dual threat QB like Bryan Bennett, it's tough not to run that type of offense.
Defensively, the Ducks will be a little weak and could possibly give up quite a few points. Luckily, the offense is strong enough and is built to score early and often.
The Michigan State Spartans look to build upon a successful 9-4 season and look to win their first Big 10 Championship under Coach Akai.
The Spartans will be led by Senior QB Peter Badovinic, who had a good Junior season at the helm for the Spartans. Accompanying Badovinic in the backfield will be a new cast of running backs, as All-Conference back LeVeon Bell declared after his Junior year and dependable Larry Caper graduated. Looking to make a mark on the offense will be Juniors Jeremy Langford and Nick Hill, but don't be surprised if Redshirt Freshman Jeremy Brown begins to take some snaps. The wide receiving corps for the Spartans remains a relative weakness as there are no bona fide playmakers, regardless, look for Seniors Bennie Fowler and Donald Spencer to continue to build upon Junior year. Yet, the success of the Spartan offense will hinge on the development of the Offensive Line. While the line does return three starters, it will also be breaking in underclassmen on the right side of the line.
The Spartan will be replacing six starters on defense, none bigger than Nagurski Award winner Jerel Worthy. The Defensive Line returns only one starter and will rely on players with little-to-no game experience to make an impact. Look for Michigan State to rely on a strong back-seven in the early going of the season. The back-seven are led by three-year starter Max Bullough at Middle Linebacker and by Safeties Isaiah Lewis and Jairus Jones. The Spartan corners are both new starters, however, both have plenty of game experience and will be counted upon to shut down the opponent passing attack.
Michigan State's season will only be as strong as the play of both its lines as the talent is in place in East Lansing to make a run to the Big 10 Championship.
This will be a rebuilding year for the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
QB- will be a battle between Jones and Carnes. Jones being a little more accurate, but Carnes having the ability to scramble, like Martinez in previous years. In their first game neither had a good outing.
HB- Smith and Green will be battling for this position as Green is the returner and a bit faster he will probably get the nod.
WR- Most of the WRs are sophomores, so their inexperience could hurt
TE-Long is the TE and will be a key target.
Defense- It will be tough to be as good as the defense last year so only time will tell.
Well, there is a lot change in the air Palo Alto, CA with the loss of Andrew Luck and HB Stepfan Taylor. Luckily the Cardinal have competent players returning, such as QB Brent Nottingham and Brent Nunez. At running back the Cardinal will feature Anthony Wilkerson as their main back, but Coach Worgum expects to see back up Remound Wright on the field from time to time. The receiving corp is very young with true freshman Joe Fry and redshirt freshman Shane Fontenot starting. Defensively the team looks very strong, but it is young in a few spots. Coach Worgum wouldn't be shock to see teams move the ball on his defense, but he expects when push comes to shove his team will stand strong. Coach Worgum's general expectations is to win the PAC-12 Championship. The Cardinal have played in both conference championships so far, and there is no reason not to expect them to play there again.
For coach Saban it begins and ends in the trenches. For the first time in three years the Crimson Tide will have a playmaker at DT. JR All-American, LaMichael Fanning, looks to put an end to the Tide's deficeincies in the defensive front. Bama's prior inability to get after the passer without bringing pressure and their difficulties against the run plagued the team in numerous big games. This season, a host of young players look to replace the production of early departures, Darrington Sentimore and Damion Square. JR Strong Safety, Hesean Clinton-Dix, and Sophomore Corners, Matt Brown and Wesley Knox, anchor a solid Alabama secondary.
On offense the Tide are loaded at the skill positions and will look to RS Sr QB, AJ McCarron, to lead the charge. In the backfield the Tide return Freshman All-American RB Mason Payne for his Sophomore year as well as RS So Demetrius Hart who will help shoulder the load. At the WR position the Tide return four players with extensive playing time experience. If the Tide can make plays through the air it may open up running lanes for their explosive young backfield.
The Tide look to start out fast against a TOUGH non-conference schedule on their way to a successful 2013 season.
