College Football Preview: 25. Utah Utes

25. Utah Utes
QB Jordan Wynn- Junior
RB Sausan Shakerin- Junior
WR DeVonte Cristopher- Junior
OT Tony Bergstrom- Senior
LB Chaz Walker- Senior
After a great start to the 2010 season the Utes struggled down to a tough end. They did lose talent and moved towards a much tougher conference but Utah is still a good squad. Junior quarterback Jordan Wynn had another decent season behind center and hopes to improve even more in his third year. He is a pretty good scrambler and his arm is getting much better. The three-man backfield last year lost two valued members: Eddie Wide and Matt Asiata. But, junior Sausan Shakerin is still a good back. He takes pressure off Wynn whenever possible. Behind him senior Shawn Asiata is also okay. Wynn lost his best option when Jereme Brooks left. He still has DeVonte Christopher along with Luke Matthews and others. The offensive line is decent even without center Zane Taylor, the unit's anchor. Tackle Tony Bergstrom and John Cullen, both seniors. They have a huge role in keeping Wynn and Shakerin safe. On defense the Utes lost much talent including defensive tackle Seaver Siliga and cornerback Brandon Burton. Without Siliga the line still has senior Derrick Shelby and junior nose tackle Dave Kruger. The linebacker core is pretty well with seniors Chaz Walker and Matt Martinez. Walker needs to be great up the middle without Siliga to stop backs on the first part of the defense. The secondary is one of the weakest parts on the Utah team. Sophomore Brian Blechen is the only returning starter but safety Greg Bird and Conroy Black are still good.

Heisman Hopeful: Jordan Wynn
Pac 12 Rank: 3rd
