It’s In The Legs

An interesting aspect of last week’s depth chart was the left-guard position, where Jeff Byers and Matt Spanos are listed equally. Considering Byers started four games as a true freshman and was the Gatorade National Player of the Year in high school, he seemed a lock to start somewhere along the line entering spring practice.
But one reason Byers has not sealed the deal is that his leg-strength remains less than 100 percent following two hip operations. It also helps explain why Chilo Rachal and Spanos (with no career starts between them) are not battling for the spot instead.
Rachal is currently listed as the starter at right guard.
