--FAU Football: Major Sleeper--
The Briles/Kiffin offense will be insurmountable. It will be headed by former FSU and East Mississippi CC (Last Chance U) QB De'Andre Johnson, the favorite to win the QB battle (or rising junior Jason Driskel, who went 19-25, 344 yards and 2 TDs), who has very good talent. They have a solid WR corp, sleeper sophomore RB Devin Singletary (who didn't even play the full season and had 1,022 yards) in place, and a veteran offensive line, the offense is looking good. --
•DEFENSE: Let's just say, their defense is a force to be reckoned with. They looked excellent in the spring, and I'm sure they'll carry it over to the fall. Though the D-Line wasn't great in spring, it'll be bolstered by Ray Ellis, who should make it much better. The linebacker corp will be above average, but will feature future stars such as Hosea Barnwell, Azeez Al-Shaair, Khantrell Burden, and Carson Lydon. The CB play has improved dramatically. Herb Miller will be excellent in the nickel, and Raekwon Williams is in for a huge senior season. Jalen Young isn't well in coverage, but he's always there for the tackle. Ocie Rose should have a good season at S.
•REVIEW: FAU will have a nice first season under Lane Kiffin and the improved coaching staff, players, and schemes. I see a 10-2 season, a C-USA Championship, and a good bowl game.
