With the 2013 recruiting class haul we just brought in, which of the upperclassmen position groups are the most worried about their status going into the 2013 football season? Who walked into their dorms (or apartments) on Thursday saying "Man...I have to step it up or I will be riding the pine". Is it the DB group, the WR group, the DL group, the RB group, or the LB group? I am personally split between the LB group and the WR group, but if I had to choose I believe the LB group should be the most worried since no one has proven themselves beyond Shazier. The WR group is a close second.
Im gona say DL. SO MUCH TALENT. You got Spence, Bosa, Deisel, Sprinkle, Lewis, hale, Hill, Munger, Price, Pittman and then Jr an seniors. I think LB will be a very competitive position but WR is a big one to watch.

1. WR - While LB is probably the biggest area of need, the 2013 WR crop is so highly rated, that it becomes the #1 as far as who is concerned they might lose their spot category. Clark will get on the field I think very quickly. Hopefully Michael Thomas has improved. After his spring game 2012, it would be a disappointment not to see him on the field. Marshall and Wilson should get PT rather quickly as well.
2. LB is a little easier. If there was anyone who'd stepped up in 2012 (other than Shazier) that is still here, they might be worried about their spot. However, none of them stepped up, so whether they are concerned or not doesn't concern me. I'm not sure how quickly Mitchell and Johnson will get on the field, especially since they don't arrive until summer camp starts.
3. CB - We have some promising CB's from the 2012 class, however, the current class just nabbed a few great ones as well. I see this as a toss up and since Apple and Burrows are already in the Winter conditioning program... lookout starting lineup.
4. S - Christian Bryant may need to reexamine the fundamentals of how to tackle rather than just laying the big hit. Bell and Thompson are going to keep him up at night...
The Father, The Son... well, it's the
The Holy Trinity... as I see it.
