    On offense:

    LG will almost definitely be a TrF.

    Look for a youth movement at RB as the season progresses.

    Metchie would be WR1 on any other team in the country. But we have 4 other WR1s in front of him. He'll still see a lot of reps though. He catches any and everything within his zip code.

    On defense:

    The DL is where we'll see the biggest impact. For certain, you'll see a ton of youth along the defensive front providing depth. As many as 4 guys will see significant snaps. It will be similar to the 15-16 depth. The two biggest names in the recruiting cycle probably won't be among them though (different players adjust from HS to this level of college at different paces).

    Short term, experience is the answer inside next to Moses. But don't be surprised if youth wins out because of higher upside.

    On the back end, we're just about set, but don't be shocked if you see Turnage stealing reps. I've heard from multiple sources (I hate using that phrase. Makes me feel gross and creepy. Please forgive me) that he's too good to keep off the field.
    Could be, but maybe not, depending on what Landon Dickerson is able to do.

    Don't think he's been mentioned but I hope Hoover’s Will Reichard either takes over the placekicking role or he pushes Bulovas to get a lot more consistent/dependable.

    I think if either develops into a dependable kicker in just making the ones most kickers make then it'll be a HUGE boost to our offense and maybe take some pressure off the offense in the red zone. I actually think that factored into our play-calling last year in the red zone.

    He’s running with the second team at corner. Had a good summer and is doing well in camp so far

    I think we will have at least a 6-man rotation at WR and I think Metchie will be part of that. I actually think we may see 8 WR's play this year including Shavers, Metchie, Bolden and Williams. Metchie may only play in 4 games and still redshirt but I think he is too talented to play in just 4 games since most of our games are going to be routes in the 2nd half.

    Absolutely could be a freshman at LG. I'm just speculating that Dickerson might lend an interesting dynamic to the group. He's undeniably experienced. If he can just keep from getting hurt....

    There's a logjam of good players at OG right now for sure. 3 guys who have been starters either here or elsewhere (Dickerson, who was good enough to start as a TF), Ekiyor (who Saban put a lot of praise on through spring), and Neil, one of our highest ever rated OL. The questions for neil are #1) how quickly does he get the playbook (through Saban's tenure there have only been a few TF OL starters) and: #2) is his longer term position to take over at OT after wills/leatherwood, and if so does he have the versatility to play inside now or would it be better for him to take the #2 reps at OT. Some guys like leatherwood are versatile enough to play across the OL, but not all are.

    Whoever makes the move at OG, will they be able to hold off D. Brown once his suspension is completed?

    Not in my opinion. Brown is an NFL guard waiting for his turn.
