ESPN.com’s Pac-12 blog continues its series on Strongest Position Groups for each team in the conference today with Washington.
You can read it here. And as you can see, Kevin Gemmell dug really deep for advice on this one before choosing tight ends as UW’s best position group.
Gemmell’s gives his reasons for his choice, and they are hard to argue — Austin Seferian-Jenkins has All-American potential, Michael Hartvigson was constantly cited by coaches as having one of the best springs of anyone on the team, and Evan Hudson also was solid throughout the spring. It’s a position that appears to have not only top-end frontline talent, but also solid depth. And with each now in their second year playing, a substantial upgrade in performance wouldn’t be a surprise from a position that was hugely improved in 2011 as it was.
But maybe you think differently. Maybe you look all the experience returning and the emerging young players in the secondary. Maybe you think Keith Price alone is enough to make quarterback the best position, even if the backup spot remains uncertain. Or maybe you like a different group entirely.
So in something we’ll do a little more of to get us through the next few months before practice starts, I’ve posted a poll below allowing you to vote for the position group you think is best. And you can state your case further in the comments section.
