|Sophomore Steven Clark is the full time punter this year after a handful of punts last year. Punting was a trouble spot for the Tigers last year and they look to Clark to Cardinals Kevin Kolb Jerseys help solve those problems. Auburn finished last in the SEC in punting last year. Onterio McCalebb and Trovon Reed will return kicks. McCalebb returned 8 kicks last year and had a 28.4 return average. Quindarius Carr will return punts, despite a costly fumble against Alabama that nearly cost Auburn that game and potentially a spot in the National Championship game.Auburn opens with home games against Utah St and Mississippi St. The Tigers then travel to Clemson before a home game against Florida Atlantic. Auburn then has a tough two game road trip with games at South Carolina and Arkansas. Then the Tigers host Florida, Cardinals Larry Fitzgerald Jerseys before traveling to LSU. That is a brutal 4 game stretch that will go a long way towards seeing how good the young Tigers are. After that stretch, they host Ole Miss before a game at Georgia. Then Auburn hosts Samford before finishing the season with the Iron Bowl against Alabama in Tuscaloosa. ZRNLNA0721
This team should win 9 games, Cardinals Patrick Peterson Jerseys but they won’t compete for the SEC title.n 2009, Alabama came to Auburn with the Crimson Tide undefeated and needing a win to stay in the top two in the BCS Standings. Alabama scored late to win 26-21 to keep the undefeated season alive. Last season the situation was reversed. Bama hosted Auburn with the Tigers needing a win to keep their undefeated season alive. Auburn rallied from a 24-0 deficit to win 28-27. The point is these two teams Falcons Matt Ryan Jerseys usually play each other close because of the passionate hate they feel towards each other. Though Auburn is rebuilding and Alabama is loaded for another National title run, I still say the Tigers keep it close.North Carolina State's defense was pretty good last year but they excelled at rushing defense and quarterback pressure. The QB pressure should remain among the best despite losing two defensive line starters and a backup who combined for 46 quarterback hurries.
Jeff Rieskamp (17 QB hurries) and J.R. Falcons Julio Jones Jerseys Sweezy (6 sacks) return, although Sweezy is out for about 5 games with a broken foot. Two starters return at linebacker, Audie Cole and Terrell Manning, both of whom had 5 sacks, but #1 tackler Nate Irving (6.5 sacks, 14 tackles for loss) is gone. They do have Dwayne Maddox, a starter in '09, back but he'll play backup again as D.J. Green or Rickey Dowdy replaces Irving instead. The secondary is loaded with all four starters back: Juniors Brandan Bishop (4 int), Earl Wolff, C.J. Wilson, and sophomore David Amerson. They gave up a huge amount of passing yardage last year but that's because the rush defense was so good; on a per-attempt basis they weren't bad and should be better this year, and no one will want to pass on N.C. State in 2012. Falcons Roddy White Jerseys One of last year's surprise teams, the Wolfpack nearly made it to the ACC championship game a year after going 5-7. They won games against UCF, Cincy, and Georgia Tech that looked like pretty clear losses pre-season, and they led Virginia Tech 17-0 before falling 41-30 for their first defeat. When they lost to East Carolina in overtime it looked like the party might be over, but they turned around and upset Florida State to take pole position in the ACC Atlantic division.
They fell to Clemson but won two more, Falcons Tony Gonzalez Jerseys beating North Carolina. A win over Maryland would have won the division but they couldn't quite do it, losing by a touchdown after scoring twice in the last three minutes. They took charge in the bowl game against West Virginia and won 23-7.For the first 4-6 games, the Wolfpack will be without three starters: RB Mustafa Greene, offensive lineman Andrew Wallace, and defensive lineman J.R. Sweezy. That would probably take them down to the mid-40s in our rankings were it for the whole season, but instead we just dock those players for the first several games and assume a full-strength Wolfpack at the end of the season.How will the absences affect the first half of the season? Well, two of the first three games including the opener are against FCS (I-AA) schools, Falcons Kevin Cone Jerseys and they should beat Wake Forest regardless. It hurts them against Cincinnati on the road, and perhaps against Georgia Tech at home though we think that's another win. Central Michigan should be a win either way as well. The second half of the season features tight games against Boston College and Clemson, but overall we only see three probable losses. The cumulative odds add up to an 8-4 record. They'll need 7 wins for bowl eligibility due to playing Liberty and South Alabama, so there is still a 1 in 5 chance they don't go bowling.
Watkins was on a pretty good line at Baylor — Phil Taylor was just selected 21st by the Cleveland Browns — but still played well for a team that surprised some by making a bowl in 2010. Falcons Jacquizz Rodgers Jerseys And Watkins has a great story, too: the 26-year-old was heading into a career as a firefighter before giving football a try at a junior college and eventually making his way to Baylor. That, juxtaposed with the NFL trotting out servicepeople just before Watkins' selection, made for great theater at Radio City Music Hall.Watkins' age is both asset and drawback: he has the maturity and temperament to start immediately, but he doesn't have as high a ceiling or Falcons Michael Turner Jerseys as long a career before him as the typical rookie, and if he needs to develop or transition from offensive tackle to guard, he doesn't have the built-in buffer most rookies do before their theoretical primes. If he can play immediately, he should help Michael Vick stay healthy in 2011.
