    You never like to see a Georgia Southern back not being preseason all-conference, but I have a feeling that position will work itself out like it usually does.

    We wondered what we might have at back when Monken arrived and we did all right with Robert Brown until Dominique Swope emerged than then again in 2014 preseason we were putting some of our hopes on Chaz Thorton and had no idea what we had in Matt Breida.

    I'm confident our blocking will be better too (maybe not the talent on the OL, but the experience and skills should be better), which will help.

    I’m expecting a Breida like emergence from Speedy.
    Too many Urkels on your team that's why your wins low

    Duncan, whoever the top back is, and at least one linebacker. And of course RJIII and both corners.

    He’s fast, but doesn’t look to be able to sustain the speed like Breida did

    Werts will make one of the teams. I’d expect Wright and Kennedy to do the same. Hopefully Miller is 1st or 2nd team and we have another OL do the same.

    Defensively I could see Phillips ending up 1st or 2nd team and expect Johnson to be 1st team. We will have a LB emerge and make an all conference team. Brinson and Vildor should both be 1st team and I think Duncan will make an all conference team.

    Yep. LBs often make teams on the basis of stats, and I can’t predict who will rack up enough tackles and big plays for us.

    That said, I think Bowdry and Byrd have the talent for honors. And we may have (or probably have) other LBs who could make it. It’s hard to overrate just how quickly Ellis moved up the depth chart vs experienced LBs.

    IMO, Jakob Cooper can make a team if his transition to C goes at least as well as expected.

    Our top RB will make a team.

    Based on what? One play in the spring game?

    I don’t see any reason to compare him to Breida, as that’s not fair. Maybe compare him to Mark Myers? That’s still a tall order for LaRoche, but at least we’re not talking about an NFL RB in Myers—just the top rushing A-Back in GS history.

    In any case, LaRoche’s running style isn’t even that similar to Breida’s.
