      Marcus Lattimore, RB from USCar. Will be contending for the Doak Walker imo.

      And if we're counting RS Freshmen, yeah, Bryn Renner will take over as UNC's QB and skyrocket to the #1 overall spot in 2012.

            TE CJ Fiedorohalsojfwiz for Iowa. We have our decent, but experienced all around TE with Senior Allen Reisner. After that, we have some younger guys that supposedly have shown glimpses, but wouldn't be close to starting if need be.

            I could definitely see CJ come in just as a receiving threat since he's probably D1 ready in that regard, and would be pretty dangerous. Plus Iowa loves to use TE sets, so Reisner in to be used as a normal TE with CJ as a receiving threat.

              Are you excited for "Long Tight End Touchdown" and "Long Tight End Touchdown #2" against Michigan? Don't worry. I think the plan this year is for the LBs to at least pretend to cover Iowa's tight ends.

                  TRUE FRESHMEN

                  LB Mike Hull
                  FB Zach Zwinak
                  LB Khairi Fortt
                  DT Evan Hailes

                  All of them on special teams. I could see the rest RS. Alex Kenney could make an impact returning and could crack the depth chart at CB. Paul Jones and Robert Bolden should RS to get better.


                  RS FRESHMAN

                  CB Derrick Thomas
                  RB Curtis Dukes
                  WR Shawney Kersey

                    DJ Fluker, redshirt freshman RT at Alabama.

                    He's the only freshman on a veteran front 5 on the Tide OL so he can have the vets carry him somewhat if he frails.

                    Top 5 nationally ranked OL recruit 2 yrs. ago, the 6-6, 340-lb. freshman was humbled in the April A-Day Spring Game when Marcel Dareus flung him aside in a pass rush & Fluker got asschewed by Saban on national TV, welcome to the bigtime, DJ. Heisman winner Ingram & Richardson are expected to run left behind sr. OLT James Carpenter but the defenses know that, so I expect Saban to run counterplays behind Fluker. ESPN commented last wk. that Alabama runs the Anti-Spread running offense most of the time where they expect their front 5 to simply overpower the defenses & create running lanes, that's a big expectation for a freshman OL. Saban mixes it up too, opening their last 3 games vs. rival Auburn, Florida, then Texas in the shotgun & passing so he will be expected to pass block too.

                    He will have to drink from the firehose this yr. to be an impact freshman b/c he will face stellar DEs Cliff Matthews (SCAR), Jake Bequette (Arkansas), Pernell McPhee (Miss. St.), & Kentrell Lockett (Ole Miss) in the regular season, & if the Tide draws #2-ranked Ohio St. in a NC game as expected I'm sure the Buckeyes will put Cameron Heyward on the freshman. Fluker may have to grow up in a big hurry.

                      Hightower also pancaked Fluker too. What about Eddie Lacy ? I know he will not get alot of playing time but could play the same role as Upchruch did last year.

                        Well, our TE(s) will just pretend like they are blocking by standing still for like 10 seconds, then turning around wide open. Apparently just standing still and acting like you didn't know the ball was snapped is not defendable.

                          Ohio State is bound to have a wide receiver have a decent impact this year, most likely James Louis or even Corey Brown if he decides to play wide receiver, but he'll most likely land at cornerback.

                          I haven't heard of any of the players redshirting just yet, but another one that I think could see at least a little bit of valuable playing time is Darryl Baldwin, massive defensive end from Solon, OH.

                          Redshirt freshman would be

                          DL Melvin Fellows
                          WR Chris Fields, who I think is underrated and has legit 4.4. speed
                          LB Jordan Whiting

                          I don't think any of these guys (maybe besides James Louis) are going to have the Trent Richardson or Andrew Luck type impacts, but will have solid contributions nonetheless.

                            True freshmen:
                            WR Tai-ler Jones

                            looks like TJ might become the slot-receiver or at the very least #4 on the depth chart in an offense starting 3-wides usually, kid looked great in the spring.

                            DT Louis Nix (maybe)

                            Dont see Louis playing tbh but he has the talent to do so. With some college conditioning the kid could be great though. Just wanted to put a second true freshman out there

                            Redshirt Freshmen

                            RB Cierre Wood

                            Will be second or third at the depth chart but Kelly has a tendancy to spread the carries around

                            OG Chris Watt/OT Zach Martin

                            May depend a little on how the line is filled but could easily see quite a bit of playing time. It will probably be one or the other as it depends on the spot that Trevor Robinson will eventually play. Zach Martin could actually be the starter at LT in the end

                            DT Tyler Stockton

                            This is the guy who i expect to spell with Ian Williams at the nose, very talented, just curious about him.



                            Not much freshman presence for the irish and there were quite a few of last years class who already saw the field (teo, evans, toma, riddick(who I have really high expectations of), taush, turk, motta and cowart all played as true freshmen)


                            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

                              For USC, hmmm only one I could see having a real "Impact" is Kyle Prater. While good, Baxter will share carries with Bradford and Gable (with Bradford getting atleast 75% of the carries).
