2017 Offensive Outlook: Graduated a SR QB that connected with Dez Boykin many times. Looking for Ethan Parvel to come in and do the same plus add to the run game with his athletic ability. Experienced OL should help with inexperienced skill

2017 Defensive Outlook: Experienced and depth at DL should help with inexperienced skill and LB group.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Our kicker is returning and has been really working hard this off season on his leg strength. We have to replace our punt returner
