  • Strongest/Weakest parts of your team.

    The title says it all.

    For my Fighting Irish:
    Strongest parts(in order):
    1 Defensive Backfield, imo this will not only be the strongest part of the team but will give any backfield a good run for their money in being the strongest backfeld in the nation. The depth at corner is staggering with Walls and Blanton probably starting and McNeill (a great playing starter last year), Gray(with starting experience himself) and Slaughter behind them. The safeties are Kyle McCarthey, last years tackle leader, great SS and Harrison Smith who is amongst the best FS in the country. With Sergio Brown behind them as second option on either position we have a tremendous athlete who would start almost everywhere in the country just playing nickel.
    2 Wide receivers. Well Floyd and Tate dont need much introduction and the depth with Duval Kamara, Deion Walker, Johnnie Goodman and Robbie Parris doesnt leave much to be desired either. That doesnt even take into account we have Shaq Evans coming to SB this summer.

    Weakest Parts:
    1 Defensive Line. This unit actually has a lot of talent but with us transitioning to the 4-3 we will only have 2 guys on the line with starting experience probably (of which one is a true freshman at the moment in EJ). I like a lot of guys on the line (Hafis Williams, Kapron Lewis-Moore and Ethan Johnson are gonna be huge for us) But the severe lack of experience and age could hurt us a few times this season.
    2 Offensive Line. A whole lot of talent but last year they were mediocre after a season where they flat out sucked. I firmly believe that we can go as far as our OLine allows us to go since there is not much else lacking in the team imo. If the new coach Verducci can get the guys to play on their talent level ND should be BCS bowl bound, if they keep playing like the last two years expect a season no better than 8-4.
    All our units ranked.
    1 DB 2 WR 3 TE 4 QB 5 LB 6 RB 7 OLine 8 DLine

    Who would have thought 10 years ago that ND would be losing their games in the trenches.


    Saints 2014 draft wish list:
    - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
    - Corner or Wideout in the first
    - No reaching
    - No Kelvin Benjamin

    Strongest: Offensive Backfield, Defensive Backfield
    Weakness: Offensive Line (at this point it's the only obvious one)

      Alabama Crimson Tide

      This is a very young Tide squad,

      Strongest p/o team: the whole defense, top 5-ranked all thru 08 in regular season run/pass defense & scoring defense. Especially between the DEs, Terence "Mount" Cody was 1st team AA NT, will be top 10 2010 draftee if he keeps healthy & maintains a playing weight in the 340s. ILB Rolando McClain called by McShay "best LB in the nation." Strong at corners too, Kareem Jackson runs 4.42 40s & Javiar Arenas doubles as one of the best KRs in the 2010 draft. Biggest test will come when they travel to Oxford, MS & this defense will try to contain Jevan Snead's Rebels offense, they have LSU at home in Nov. -- fellow SEC West member LSU is the only team with higher ranked recruiting class than Nick Saban at Bama. Another strength is returning 2/3rds of running game with RBs Ingraham & Grant + #1-ranked freshman RB Trent Richardson from Pensacola HS (same HS that produced Emmitt Smith) should provide the ball control offense that Saban loves. Also WR Julio Jones could receive some pre-season AA consideration, he has a yr. of Div. 1 competition under his belt as a soph & could be among top 5 WRs this season.

      Weakest: New QB (McElroy won job at A-Day Game), new center, new OLT, both TEs & most of o-line. All-SEC SS Rashad Johnson has to be replaced too.

      Prediction: 10-2, possible losses to Va. Tech in 2nd ChickFilYa Bowl in Atlanta opening w'kend & to LSU/Ole Miss. If they get past the Hokies & Bayou Bengals they will face Florida & Urban Meyer again in another SEC Championship game. I look for Bama to add to its NCAA rcd. bowl appearances in the postseason, maybe 2 yrs. away from another national title run since the new QB & o-line have to get experience.

                strongest: LB, DLine
                weakest: OLine, cornerback.
                everything else probably falls in between.

                  BYU
                  Strength - Offense
                  Weakness - Defense

                  LSU
                  Strength - Runningbacks. Quarterback. Offensive Line. Defensive Backfield. Most of the starters in these units are returning. Williams and Scott are returning to form on of the nations best running duos. I'm excited to see the strides made by Jordan Jefferson or whoever the starter may be. Our defensive backfield always seems to be good. We also have a quality class of recruits coming in.

                  Weakness - Front Seven. Most of them are new but it shouldnt be a worry since LSU is known for developing this area.

                        Ole Miss

                        Strengths: Defensive line, running backs, linebackers. We lost Peria Jerry but we are still absolutely stacked on the DL with Greg Hardy, Kentrell Lockett, Marcu Tillman, Ted Laurnet, Lawon Scott, Jerrell Powe, and Emmanuel Stephens. Plus incoming freshman Craig Drummond should be getting some reps at end. At RB we have Brandon Bolden, Cordera Eason, Devin Thomas, Enrique Davis, and Dexter McCluster will be getting his carries too of course. We signed a ton of RBs so we should get some contribution from freshmen. At LB we are very athletic with Patrick Trahan, Jonathan Cornell, and Allen Walker as the starters. Lamar Brumfield and Jason Jones look to be the depth guys and we signed a lot of LBs too.

                        Weaknesses: Offensive line, cornerback. We have talent, but there are a lot of question marks on the OL. John Jerry is a stud at RT but we lost our anchor in Michael Oher as well as RG Maurice Miller and G/T Darryl Harris. The biggest concern the team has right now is finding Oher's replacement, Bradley Sowell is there now but everyone is waiting for the arrival of signee Bobby Massie. At corner, Marshay Green is a playmaker as a converted WR and improved as the year went on but there are a lot of question marks after him. Cassius Vaughn did well against Crabtree in the Cotton Bowl and will probably be the #2 and UCLA transfer/converted RB Jeremy McGee looks to be the nickel guy. They are a decent top 3, but if any of them were to go down we would be in a tough spot.

                          Nebraska

                          Strongest - Defensive line

                          Suh looked even better this spring, if that is possible. Absolutely no one on our line can block the guy, even with double teams. Barry Turner and Pierre Allen return. Jared Crick and Baker Steinkuhler will have the greatest opportunities of their lives playing next to Suh who will take all the attention off of them.

                          Weakest - Wide receivers

                          Too much inexperience here. Niles Paul and Menelik Holt are the only two who return will real game experience, but neither were starters and neither have flashed in the time they did play. After those two, it is a complete tossup. Chris Brooks and Antonio Bell had good springs. But practice and games are two totally different things.

                            RU:

                            Strengths: RB, OL, LB
                            - An excellent 4 headed monster with Joe Martinek, Jordan Brooks, Kordell Young and Mason Robinson. Martinek and Brooks exploded onto the scene last year and are great all around, tough physical backs with quick, shifty, explosive backs in Young and Robinson. All are weapons out of the backfield as well.

                            -We're returning our entire OL. Led by stud LT Anthony Davis, we're a strong all around line, who've got more experience under our belt. Ryan Blasczcyk being the 5th year senior anchoring us at the center spot. Ruch, Barbieri, Forst and Haslem will battle for the other 3 spots, all are capable of filling them in and have started at some point. Rotated playing time last year.

                            -At LB, we lost our big tackling machine in Malast, but we should be fine. D'Imperio was hurt for the majority of last year and is our top LB'er. He's a nice pro prospect who you'll all know come January. Manny Abreu is a young athletic freak that better see some time this year, and should. Blair Bines and Damaso Munoz are solid LBers and hard hitters. An experienced group and solid talent all around.

                            Weaknesses: QB, WR

                            -Teel's gone! but still, he was a winner for us and probably the best QB in RU's history. Right now, we've got excellent raw and young talent with DC Jefferson and Tom Savage, but Savage won't see time this year and Jefferson's very raw. Lovelace is a runner and just hilarious because of his name, but isn't a good full time starting QB, leaving senior Dom Natale who has shown some flashes, but eh. Hopefully one of them surprises me

                            -WR: I MISS KENNY BRITT! AND TIQUAN :(
                            we've got Timmy Brown, a small speedster. He rocks my socks. But behind him, it's young and unproven talent. Young Marcus Cooper has some nice talent. Andrew DePaola is a 5th year senior...who used to play QB. Julian Hayes and Keith Stroud are some nice bigger options, but really, we've got seniors who haven't seen time and young kids who need to come up big
                            We ALL bleed scarlet

                              Honestly I can't get very excited about anything UConn is in store for. The main strength is at linebacker with Scott Lutrus, etc. The weakness I'd say is the overall experience of the team - they just lost A LOT of good players. Donald Brown, William Beatty, Cody Brown, Julius Williams, Darius Butler, etc. Even Tyler Lorenzen left. He was terrible but Zach Frazer didn't exactly look promising last year either.
