Commentary: Utah football's way-too-early position-by-position breakdown

Published: Wednesday, Feb. 19 2014 3:20 p.m. MST

Utah's fourth season in the Pac-12 begins on Aug. 28, which is still 190 days (or six months, nine days) away. It's obviously way too early to talk about how Utah football will do this fall. Spring camp is still a little more than two weeks out.

That won't stop us from talking about it anyway.

There's so many questions headed into 2014. Who will start at quarterback? How can the Utes adapt after losing a lot of NFL-level talent? How will the offense respond with a new offensive coordinator?

Here's our way-too-early position-by-position breakdown for the Utah Utes.

News flash, Sam Tevi is by several accounts moving to the O Line. He's a super athlete. I wouldn't be surprised to see him at OT.

Excellent article. I agree with the analysis. What about local 4-star recruit Harvey Langi? Isn't he due to be back from his mission before the season begins?

Why no mention of Gioni Paul at linebacker. He sat out last year after transferring from Miami. He was the best defensive player on the team last year when he couldnt play. The linebacker group will carry this team next year. Norris, Paul and Whittingham are all, all conference players.
