    You have a valid point and I believe the number of true freshmen who play will be down, eight played last season and five or six the season before. Three is probably a good over/under.

    Biggest surprise to me is Gilbert dropped to 3rd CB.

    Looking forward to seeing which true freshmen move into 2 deep.

    Anyone notice that punter Austin Parker is listed as the starting placekicker too?
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Keep in mind, this depth chart is the final spring depth chart. It is somewhat shaped by guys who were hurt or missed time in spring. That could be why Gilbert slipped so badly ... it's also why Austin Parker is listed as the starting PK. He beat out AJ Reed and three walk-ons in the spring.

    Very little chance Parker handles the placekicking this fall. The staff is betting on one of three recruited walk-on kickers -- probably Duggers. But there will be real competition starting as soon as practice starts and somebody will have to win the job. Cut said there will also be competition for the long-snapper and the holding jobs.

    ACC Kickoff:

    http://www.theacc.com/news/2017-acc-...ion-07-14-2017

    “I believe in my heart of hearts, this team is the deepest, most talented team we've had at Duke yet,” said Cutcliffe, who is preparing for his 10th season in Durham. “We are young in certain spots. We have concerns in certain little areas. But I think this team will display what we're capable of being at Duke, and we believe we can compete for championships every year. That's where we had gotten to, and that's where we intend to be.”

    Here is a nice article on quarterback Daniel Jones and Duke's off-season conditioning program:

    “He physically different,” Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. “He is stronger, I believe faster. No question, there’s a big difference in that year that has occurred physically.”

    Having a starting quarterback that was able to shake off some early growing pains last season could help Duke more in the first few weeks of this season. The Blue Devils’ first two ACC games are against the Tar Heels and Miami, and both of those teams will have quarterback competitions in fall camp.

    Thanks dd. Kicking is probably my biggest concern this offseason. We were, to be polite, not very good in this area last season.

    That's being waaaay more than polite. That article makes it sound promising but it couldn't get much worse than last year.

    My only kicking concern is just how much we are going to kick butt this year.

    I agree. From what I understand, the coaching staff is very excited about this team, and believes it may be their deepest and most talented overall yet. While the schedule is pretty brutal, I expect us to go bowling, and believe 7 to 9 regular season wins is a reasonable expectation.

    From your keyboard to God's monitor.

    Other than health (which is always variable #1 in football), I think our D-line and our kicking game will be the largest determiners of how far we go. I am optimistic about our D-line given the strong coaching we have there. I'm a bit on pins and needles about the kicking game though.
