2017 Offensive Outlook: We return a very experienced offensive line and QB, which provides a solid foundation for our offense. The key to our success will be finding a RB who can carry the bulk of the load and receivers that can be consistent and reliable in our passing game.

2017 Defensive Outlook: Our defense should return to be the strength of our team as we return our top 4 defensive linemen. We also have a number of players who got significant playing time last season that should lead to increased production this season.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: We return all our our specialists this season which should allow us to be more dangerous on special teams.
