QB Position is still in turmoil. Not much to say.

RB Same outlook as before, Walter Tucker working hard in the spring, could be a good small yardage back. Gus Edwards isn't backing down to matching the expected skill set brought by Joseph Yearby. Update: After reading up on an article from April 10 Sun Sentinel, Trayone Gray will be competing for his spot on the roster as a RB, assuming he is kept here, Either 2 things will happen In my opinion; He will be given some ingame carries to break him into the collegiate game maybe during Game 2 against FAMU and see what performance he has, or Canes are preparing for an early departure of Duke Johnson and will red shirt Trayone, so that way they can return next year with a few RB's on the roster that are familiar with the scene, and also have to worry less about getting 2-3 RB's in 2015's draft class.

TE With little change for an important position, i have a feeling(with no facts or evidence to back it up) That incoming TE David Njoku could end up being redshirted while Canes work with what they have already.

OL Couldn't be more exited to see how it turns out. Much potential in the group as a whole and sprinkled around with both young and experience players. Unfortunately we will have to wait for the full group to be healthy and practicing to see what happens with the lineup. Thank God for Early Enrollment.

WR Some would say that it's quite obvious how this will play out. Other then Stacey Coley being on top, i think it's still a good chance to see someone grow out of expectations. In addition, i think no matter what happens, this position will be thankfully deep, and i project that one of the incoming freshman recruits will be Red Shirted.

DL Not much to say about this group since i'm personally unfamiliar. Though I am expecting a much more improved line. I also think this position will be more mature and make less mistakes on assignments, with everyone trying their hardest to prove not only efficient, but knowledge of their role in order to win the starting job.

LB These guys changed around a bit in roles and positions but it shouldn't mean much since it's not like they were all spectacular last year, according to reports they are the hardest working group who have alot to prove. Spring game displayed only the best out of these guys.

DB/S Not much to say here either, hope for the best since I can't personally judge them off the spring game, from the fact that the QB play wasn't too good itself. Not a negative though, hopefully Dallas Crawford can be better then pre-season expectations.
