What will Utah's starting lineup look like this year?

Here are my predictions:

Offense

QB Jake Bentley (SR)
RB Devin Brumfield (JR)
WR Britain Covey (JR)
WR Samson Nacua (SR)
WR Jaylen Dixon (JR)
WR Bryan Thompson (JR)
TE Brant Kuithe (JR)
OL Nick Ford (JR)
OL Braeden Daniels (SO)
OL Orlando Umana (SR)
OL Bamidele Olaseni (SR)
OL Simi Moala (SO)

Defense
DL Mika Tafua (JR)
DL Maxs Tupai (SR)
DL Hauati Pututau (SR)
DL Pita Tonga (SR)
LB Devin Lloyd (JR)
LB Sione Lund (JR)
DB Bronson Boyd (JR)
DB Tyrone Smith-Young (SR)
DB R.J. Hubert (JR)
DB Vontae Davis (SR)
NB Malone Mataele (SO)

Special Teams

K Jadon Redding (SO)
P Ben Lennon (SO)

Man I hope we can upgrade special teams. We’ve been spoiled with the K position and last season was just dreadful.

I have no reason to think this other than my gut instinct, but, I think Nate Ritchie will crack the lineup. If he stays healthy I believe he’ll be one of the all-time greats.

I am optimistic about our WR group this year. Lots of experience and talent, a good combo.

Has Sione Lund been reinstated, or will he be? I doubt he starts either way

He is on leave? I didn’t know that. I just went by the spring roster. Also, I think Clark Phillips III might earn one of the starting CB spots. He committed to Utah over Ohio State.
