Key Stats: We return our entire offensive line with some depth from a team that rushed for over 2000 yds in 2016.

2017 Offensive Outlook: We will be a more balanced attack than we were in 2016. We will have the ability to use multiple personnel groups and formations which should allow us to better attack the different defenses that we see throughout the season.

2017 Defensive Outlook: We are pleased to return our starting defensive line with some depth behind it to allow for rotations at those positions. Many of the players filling roles at LB and in the secondary got quality experience last year and they have grown tremendously in the off-season.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: We return many players that got experience on Special Teams last year and they will again fill key roles in many of those spots. There will be competition for both kicker and punter
