2018 Offensive Outlook: Will need to replace a lot of starters on the offensive side of the ball. Transitions at QB, OL, RB and WR will play a key role in the offensive success.
2018 Defensive Outlook: Strong fundamentals will be the focus for the defense, getting off blocks, running to the ball, tackling and creating some opportunities for the offense.
2018 Special Teams Outlook: Replacing Kenneth Marshman will be a priority – field position kicking will be critically important.
