Whoever the QB is, he's going to be help immensely by Jabari Carr, and Tyler Winston. SJSU may have the best dual threat recivers in the MWC next year. They're both big, fast, and can catch the ball! I'm not sure why Jabari was moved down the depth chart. I think he's way better than Kyle Nunn. Anyway, I think the Spartans are set at WR. Hansel Wilson is good, and maybe there's one or two more that will step up their game. Still, it's going to be hard to replace Chandler Jones. I always thought he was a little better than Noel Grigsby. It's just that David looked his way first.
The RBs are a big question mark. Jared Lawson can't carry the whole load. Thomas Tucker seemed to get better at the end of the season, so maybe he'll be seeing more action. However, I still think that Alvin Jelks has what it takes to take e running game to a higher level. I saw him handle the ball only 2 times, and what I saw is that he was faster to the hole, had a good first move, and is bigger and more powerful than all the rest. Again, I don't know why Alvin never made it up the depth chart. Anyway, in my opinion Brandon Monroe would be the "real deal" at RB. He has 4.5 speed and can add some weight, and RB is his natural position. He knows how to use his blockers, that's something Jason Simpson wasn't able to do. Jason just went into the pile and never came out the other side. Well except once against Sac State.
In any event, the sunning game will be dictated by the quality of the OL. I think next year the OL will be much improved. There's a solid core coming back, and some players that are ready to step in. Jermmiah Kolone, Evan Sarver are two that were two All-State players that I think will shine. Nick Diaz has game experience. If Keith Bendixsen gets back to 100% then that fills all the spots. Coach Fraley has to put them through the most demanding off-season training of their lives.
There's a lot of ifs on the O side of the ball for next year. A lot of that can be mitigated by the coaches also stepping up. Hopefully they take some time to reflect and up their game.
