Talent hasn't this high in UCF for a while. Even with the loss of star defensive end Bruce Miller the Knights have enough talent to get to another bowl appearance. Sophmore Jeff Godfrey is the starter at quarterback after starting at freshman. The squad's main weak spot was the QB spot so they might not be so reluctant to bench Godfrey. Tailback Ronnie Weaver is a definite threat. He has sweet speed and finds the holes tgat the offensive line creates. Also in the backfield is fullback Billy Giovanetti, junior Jonathan Davis and Latavius Murray. Godfrey has decent options including senior A.J. Guyton and Khymest Williams. Quincy McDuffie is also a threat thanks to his good hands. Tight end Adam Nissley also can catch balls. The offensive line is okay with junior Theo Goins and Nick Pieschel. Sophomore Chris Martin must replace Jah Reid. The defense is strong even with the loss of Bruce Miller. End Darius Nall is the top player on the line now. He is smart and has great stamina. Sophomore tackle Victor Gray also returns and so does junior end Troy Davis. The linebacker core is very weak returning just middle linebacker Josh Linam. The Knights may be forced to use a defensive end or other options to use at outside linebacker. The secondary is strong with cornerback Josh Robinson and safety Kemal Ishmael. Both are good in coverage and hit hard. UCF's special teams is solid with kicker Nick Cattoi. McDuffie is a fantastic returner also.

Heisman Hopeful: Ronnie Weaver
C-USA Rank: 3rd
