Good core of sophomores on defense

That alone should make the Rams more formidable than they were last year. I think six of those guys saw action as true freshmen, and at least a couple of them started.

CSU’s Achilles’ heel is the offensive line. Not a strong-looking group going in. If the Rams can’t run on us, we should be able to put lots of pressure on QB Collin Hill.

Hill looked like a great young player in 2016, when as a true freshman he beat out Nick Stevens (who I always thought was pretty good) early in the season. But Hill got hurt — and later got hurt again, bad knee injuries both times — and the jury is out on him.

Speaking of injuries, Marvin Kinsey was a fine-looking, dangerously fast RB as a freshman but hasn’t been the same since he got hurt. The Rams appear a bit like us at that spot, hoping to get production from guys who have yet to make their mark.

And the CSU receiving group is merely OK this year. Not bad, but no Higgins, Gallup, Williams, Bisi Johnson kind of NFL prospects.

Finally, there is the Bobo factor. Most CSU fans I know want him gone, but he was so far from physically OK last year that the 3-9 season almost should get an asterisk. That made a difference.

Anyway, that is my take on the Rams. Some potential but lots of question marks.
