Early Bird Look at 2011 BYU Football Roster


The 2010 season is in the books.  Well, the season never ends here at Cougar Center.  We are already looking forward to the exciting 2011 season.  Independence!

We’ve pieced together a rough draft of key personnel who will likely be participating in SPRING PRACTICES.  So this list will not include 2011 signees or return missionaries who don’t get back til Summer or even in the Fall of 2011.

Also, this isn’t an exact Depth Chart.  Have the returning starters at the top with players who we feel will see significant time near top.  Then on players we are not sure on we place in Alphabetical Order in their position listing.

We will be going over some of this on the Cougar Center Podcast this week on Wednesday night.  We want to hear your thoughts on talent we have in the program or just correct us if we missed someone on the list.

Tweet us at @Cougar_Center or post a comment here on the site, what your thoughts on the 2011 personnel is looking like.  We might just read your comment on the next episode of the Podcast!
