In 2013, the Boise State football team will have a few voids to fill. Finding replacements for key positions could be a challenge for head coach Chris Petersen.
Jerrell Gavins and Jamar Taylor will be big cleats to fill in the defensive secondary. D.J. Harper will also be missed in the offensive backfield.
Boise State will be in search of a new field-goal kicker as well. Michael Frisina finished off his career with a game-winning field goal over Washington in the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas.
However, even with the mild construction project needed in Boise, the coaches, players and fans of the Broncos should be excited that they have a solid core of players returning for the 2013 season.
Among those returning players are a handful of guys who seem poised to do something big this time around. Let's look closer at six of them, and at what might transpire in 2013.
