Cal Football: 4 Youngsters Who Will Start for Golden Bears in 2012

As coach Jeff Tedford approaches a crucial year regarding his future tenure with the California Golden Bears, replacing much of their departing talent from last season will be chief among his concerns.

Returning only 11 players from 2011's 7-6 campaign, the Bears will have to replace several key contributors after losing seven starters to this year's NFL draft.

As Cal prepares for its reintroduction to Memorial Stadium, how well Coach Tedford and his staff replenish this experience-starved roster will be pivotal to the success of its inaugural season. Luckily, Tedford's noted recruiting prowess has provided the Bears with a bevy of young talent ready to restock their depleted roster.

With spring practices officially over, fans now have a clear idea of which fresh faces will be occupying starting spots on this year's depth chart. 

A combination of recent arrivals and patiently waiting redshirts, Cal faithful should look for this crop of first-time starters to make a big impact in 2012.
