When you look up and down this roster and depth chart, what position or group of positions do you feel the most confident about, and why?
Kodiak: D-line. Tipoti backed up by Payne and Moala. Coleman and Jalil, backed up by Scarlett and Barr.
Vincent S: Running Backs. How can I not be? We have two guys that would be starters on most other teams, along with tantalizing talent backing them up. Isi and CJ are solid, reliable options that many teams would kill for. Bigelow offers game-breaking talent should he put it together, and the rest of them, headlined by Lasco, aren't too shabby either.
Berkelium97: I give the edge to the running backs. We are absolutely stacked with talent at RB. CJ and Isi would start on any other Pac-12 team. Even our third string, Brendan Bigelow, is fully capable at the position, as he brings a home-run threat every time he gets his hands on the ball. Another year of strengthening his body and mind should pay off well this fall. At no other position are we this talented and proven three (and even four) spots into the depth chart.
We certainly have the chance to put up dual 1000-yard rushers this season.
atomsareenough: I do think Vincent makes a good point about the running backs; and I agree with Berkelium that based on their productivity last year, CJ and Isi would probably be starting at any other school in the conference... but I'll add an Oregon as an exception, because let's be honest, can you really see either of them starting over Kenjon Barner or DeAnthony Thomas?
I hope that the D-line is as good as we all think they will be and I'm excited for our linebackers, but given the talent and coaching in the running back department, I have to go with them.
