Quarterback / Offense

Quarterback Anthony Boone is beginning to flourish in Coach Cutcliffe's system. When coaches want a change of pace they still have Connette as a running option. Both are legit senior competitors. This is a balanced offense however and the running game will continue to be respectable while the offensive line has made some great strides. Expect this offense to be even better on this next attempt. Jamison Crowser is poised to be both an All-American receiver and punt returner.

Defensive Line / Cornerback

Duke is dealing with some big time losses up front on defense with these linemen as three full-time starters will need replaced. This defense has issues stopping opponents via the ground or air and the pass rush has been poor. Gone are both quality corners, which includes senior leader Ross Cockrell, making a return trip the ACC Championship Game a difficult task. Duke will still have to outscore most opponents.

* DEPTH CHARTS were only designed as a simplistic gauge for listing players that departed and players that received the most playing experience (consistent starters). NationalChamps.net recognizes the importance of missing personnel data not listed such as redshirts, transfers, injuries, incoming recruits, back ups and alternates. Their coverage will begin with our full 2014 Preseason Preview due out this coming spring.
