I posted a simple graphic a couple weeks ago showing a potential Cal 2010 defense squad. It apparently worked well as a conversation starter and it's good to hear from various points of view with differing levels of team access. Eventually, I put up a second version based on feedback.
This post is similar, meant to encourage discussion and to create an initial mental picture for 2010. I don't follow offense as closely as defense, so it might be imprecise for some offense experts here. For example, I mixed WR's with those who often line-up in a slot position, eg Sofele. Comments welcome.
Edit: Looking at the comments below, made a first edit of the chart. Not all back-ups will fit in this chart. Cheadle was dropped in favor of Schwenke. Sofele was left in WR/Slot group out of spite. Just kidding, he seems multipurpose and in the slot a lot so leaving him there rather than next to Vereen & DeBoskie? Guarmero left where he is, but it's understood competition is likely at Center and RG. Inverted the chart. I'll look-in again tomorrow.

A question for me is who will move to the important LT position. I put up a poll below. For my money, I've been impressed with MSG most of the season; a talented freshman. If that happens, it's unclear who can step-in competently to LG. Maybe I've overlooked someone.
Who is your choice for left tackle?
