Hoo boy, this got interesting fast. Let's see who landed where:
Very quick initial impressions follow, but realize we're still processing all of this.
QB: Brett Kean has beaten out Asiantii Woulard so far. Don't think many fans saw this coming before practice, and having lots of viable options at the most important position is a very good thing.
Z: A.J. LeGree over Ryeshene Bronson. Not a total stunner after his strong Spring, but shows the progress he's made.
RT: Billy Atterbury over Glen Bethel. That was a big hill to climb by the redshirt freshman, but wow does that seem promising for his future.
Slot & X: No surprise that Rodney Adams & Marques Valdes-Scantling win, but the loads of depth behind them (Chris Barr, Jordan Reed, Tyre McCants, Stanley Clerveaux) is an embarrassment of riches. And that's before Darnell Salomon gets here in the Fall.
DE: We had heard good things about Kirk Livingstone, but winning the #1 job at his first opportunity is very impressive.
Nose: Bruce Hector winning isn't a surprise, but the experienced Deadrin Senat (24 games played in two season, 10 starts in '15) staying at #2 is a bit odd. Will we see him mix in at DT (a.k.a. 3-technique) as well?
Bull: I had heard the coaches really liked Jameis Winston's buddy LaDarrius Jackson, but local product Vincent Jackson Jr. wins as an edge rusher. Jackson will get a chance to back up a lot of the drama he made on Twitter during his recruitment.
Striker: We knew Nate Godwin would jump in Jamie Byrd's old spot, and he and Jalen Spencer are the only seniors on what should be a talented secondary.
P: Brent Gordon gets the nod to follow up Mattias Ciabatti. That's a big shoe to fill (UCWIDT?)
Otherwise... totally as expected. Also we repeat our claim that Tajee Fullwood is going to break a couple this year.
What are the biggest surprises you see?
