One of the biggest areas where depth may be needed is on the offensive line. With just one starter returning and losing six seniors off last year’s team, Coach Jack Bicknell, Jr. has a challenging job. Throw in the fact that the Tigers didn’t get spring practices and things are likely to be even tougher to find that clear-cut first five group heading into the opener.

That means getting multiple players ready and could mean giving multiple players looks in games, something that isn’t usually the case on the offensive line. Malzahn said that group will be handled much differently between now and the season opener on Sept. 26 against Kentucky.
