Spread offense. White under center gives us the flexibility to throw and run. Our two receivers are good YAC guys and Noel Devine in the open field is asking for trouble. We have an exceptional tandem of RBs with Devine and Stefon Johnson, who's a solid in between the tackles guy who averages nearly 6 ypc. Carlos Brown also offers a fast RB/slot WR type guy who is tailor made for this offense. The OL is by far the best in this draft. Smith and Boone are sure fire first rounders this year, O'Dowd and Davis were both excellent as true freshmen and Steinkuhler is a top 10 freshman recruit.

4-3 attacking defense. We have four very good all-around DL. Evans and Graham bring a great pass rush as does Shaugnessy, and Taylor is a terrific NT with his leverage. Our linebackers are fast and smart. Gerald McRath is the best player you've never heard of. He's a great SAM backer who finds his way into the backfield a lot. Jasper Brinkley is a possible first rounder this year who is your prototypical MIKE backer. Crum is terrific in coverage, a little undersized but makes up for it with great instincts and awareness. Chris Galippo comes off the bench and can play all 3 LB spots. Our DB group is outstanding. Eric Berry was the best DB in the SEC as a freshman, and will only get better. He's a top 3 DB in the nation. Hill is a stud freshman-to-be who displays great coverage awareness but is big enough to do some dirty work near the LOS. Warren and Harris are both great man coverage corners and will shut down anyone.

DE- Maurice Evans (Penn State), Junior
