Starting Lineups


Who has the edge on a starting job going into the summer? What's the key position to watch out for and what needs to be addressed before the season starts? Here are the projected starting lineups for every team.

Projected Starting Lineups
ACC | Big East | Big 12 | Big Ten | C-USA | Ind.
MAC | M-West | Pac 10 | SEC | Sun Belt | WAC

Army

QB 16 Carson Williams, 6-3, 212, Jr.
Position Spotlight: This is a weird situation. Are the Knights going to run the option or are they going to stick with a mish-mosh of styles? Can Williams run or is he a square peg for a round hole? No matter what the direction the offense goes, star option recruit Paul McIntosh could be the savior this fall while Chip Bowden will push Williams for time.

FB 30 Collin Mooney, 5-10, 247, Sr.
RB 29 Patrick Mealy, 5-8, 203, So.
WR 36 Jameson Carter, 5-11, 187, So.
WR 8 Mike Wright, 6-2, 218, Sr.
TE 88 Mike Evans, 6-2, 238, Sr.
OT 67 Jason Johnson, 6-3, 260, Jr.
OG 79 Brandon Cox, 6-3, 294. Sr.
C 73 Tyson Quink, 6-3, 281, Sr.
OG 93 Mikel Weich, 6-3, 281, So.
OT 63 Mike Lemming, 6-3, 298, Sr.
PK 10 Adam DeMarco, 5-9, 182, Sr.

Navy

SB 26 Shun White, 5-9, 186, Sr.
SB 29 Greg Shinego, 5-9, 182, Sr.
FB 36 Eric Kettani, 6-1, 233
WR 89 Tyree Barnes, 6-2, 188, Sr.
WR 84 T.J. Thiel, 6-0, 192, Sr.

Position Spotlight:
Wait, Navy doesn't throw? Who cares about the receivers? While that's true to a point, the offense has always come up with big plays here and there to keep defenses honest. But now, there aren't any targets who can't be erased by any mid-level defensive back. With Greg Sudderth not getting shot down by the NCAA in his appeal for another year, Thiel has to emerge as a real, live producer. He doesn't have to do much, but he needs to make a big grab a game.

OT 60 Austin Milke, 6-3, 260, Jr.
OG 72 Anthony Gaskins, 6-1, 281, Sr.
C 68 Ricky Moore, 6-4, 283, Sr.
OG 67 Curtis Bass, 6-1, 275, Jr.
OT 75 Andrew McGinn, 6-1, 255, Sr.
PK 19 Matt Harmon, 5-10, 182, Sr.

DE 38 Michael Walsh, 6-2, 239, Sr.
NG 99 Nate Frazier, 6-3, 285, Jr.
DE 59 Matt Nechak, 6-4, 244, Jr.
LB 5 Corey Johnson, 6-2, 192, Sr.
LB 44 Clint Sovie, 5-11, 201, Jr.
LB 51 Ross Pospisil, 6-0, 223, Jr.
LB 49 Craig Schaefer, 6-2, 215, Jr.
CB 18 Rashawn King, 6-0, 190, Sr.
Rover 17 Jeff Deliz, 5-11, 195, Sr.
FS 8 Wyatt Middleton, 6-0, 200, So.
CB 11 Ketric Buffin, 5-7, 170, Sr.
P 35 Kyle Delahooke, 6-1, 185, So.

Notre Dame

QB 7 Jimmy Clausen, 6-3, 212, So.
RB 34 James Aldridge, 6-0, 222, Jr.
FB 44 Asaph Schwapp, 6-0, 261, Sr.
WR 18 Duval Kamara, 6-5, 225, So.
WR 11 David Grimes, 5-10, 175, Sr.
TE 83 Mike Ragone, 6-5, 241, So.
OT 72 Paul Duncan, 6-7 308, Sr.

Position Spotlight: Much has been made about the miserable Irish O line, and for good reason. The skill players didn't provide much in the way of help, but they never had a chance behind a line that got the quarterbacks crushed and did nothing for the running game. Four starters return, led by Sam Young, and now Duncan has to prove he can play. Opposing speed rushers can't be licking their chops like they did last year.

OG 77 Mike Turkovich, 6-6, 301, Sr.
C 51 Dan Wenger, 6-4, 300, Jr.
OG 55 Eric Olsen, 6-4, 303, Jr.
OT 74 Sam Young, 6-8, 330, Jr.
PK 14 Brandon Walker, 6-3, 188, So.

DE 53 Morrice Richardson, 6-2, 258, Jr.
NT 95 Ian Williams, 6-2, 306, So.
DE 94 Justin Brown, 6-3, 271, Sr.
LB 58 Brian Smith, 6-3, 239, So.
LB 49 Toryan Smith, 6-1, 244, Jr.
LB 40 Maurice Crum Jr., 6-0, 235, Sr.
LB 56 Kerry Neal, 6-2, 240, So.
CB 2 Darrin Walls, 6-0, 180, Jr.
FS 27 David Bruton, 6-2, 205, Sr.
SS 28 Kyle McCarthy, 6-1, 200, Sr.
CB 20 Terrail Lambert, 5-11, 195, Sr.
P 43 Eric Maust, 6-2, 177, Jr.
