1. Nick Noce, QB, sr. -- Struggled with interceptions last year but has a strong arm and a take-charge approach that will serve him well if he can cut down the mistakes.
2. Antonio Warren, RB, sr. -- Showed improved speed in the spring and will be more involved in he passing game this season.
3. Oren O'Neal, FB, sr. -- An outstanding lead blocker who is at his best leading Warren through the hole.
4. Levi Dejohnette, WR, so. -- An angular athlete with soft hands.
5. Tyrell Johnson, SS, so. -- Had an impressive freshman year and will be a key as the team switches from a 4-2-5 defense to a more traditional 4-3.
