The QB and RB starting positions seem set for next season. With Wilton Speight moving on and DTR having the most experience working in this offense, the starting spot should be the sophomore’s. But knowing Kelly and how he wants (needs) to develop his players, especially starters and backups, we should expect a full-on QB competition.
Why is that? Because Matt Lynch has made strides with Kelly, plus he has the same amount of knowledge of the playbook as DTR. There is also Austin Burton who had an impressive outing at last year’s Spring Game. And let us not forget Chase Griffin, the Texas Player of the Year in 2018.
As far as the running game, we all know Joshua Kelley is going to lead the charge, but how will the depth chart line up behind him?
Honestly, who knows? The four other backs have a variety of skills that Kelly can use in different situations. If the Bruins are in need for speed, Kazmeir Allen and Keegan Jones will be the lightning behind Kelley. If they need a more thunderous running approach, Martell Irby and Jahmon McClendon will add power to the run.
