Defensive Line

The SEC's top rated pass rush will have to give it another go without the services of First Team All-American defensive end Michael Sam and his partner on the other side Kony Ealy, who bolted early for the NFL. But there is plenty of experience remaining, especially on the inside at tackle, and a good many players saw a great deal of playing time. End Markus Golden will become the new sack master.

Passing Game / Cornerback

The college world caught a glimpse of first year quarterback Maty Mauk when starter James Franklin sat out four games with an injury. Mauk looked the part but he will now be working with a set of receivers that loses two of its top three pass catchers. This secondary got torched (98th nationally) this past fall. They will need to locate a new set of cornerbacks and put in some extra work this off-season if Missouri is to make a repeat SEC East Champ run.

* 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.
