So the season is over and it's time to start considering what things will look like this spring.
The defense is losing a ton of talent including both strong safeties and Najja Johnson. Then there is Khalil Mack and Adam Redden* from the linebackers. Finally Colby way and Beau Bachtelle on the defensive line. At all three levels of defense UB is losing 50% or more of their starts,
Of course losing Mack hurts a ton but the real challenge will be in the secondary. Even with Johnson and Houston the secondary looked vulnerable at times. The front seven was often able to apply pressure to the quarterback so if that falls off a bit things could be all the worse next season.
On the offense Buffalo is doing pretty well, as well as you can be doing after losing Branden Oliver and Alex Neutz. The big question is who steps into the number two lead receiving role next season.
Boise Ross came on big and Devon Hughes did some decent work this season. I suspect going into spring ball they will be the 1 and 2 receivers. The third will either be Willoughby or Dunmore.
At Tail back I believe it's going to be Taylor versus Potts.
