With spring practice in full swing, some question marks persist when speaking about the UCLA Bruins football team.
Pressing need numero uno lies in regards to filling the spot of the departed Johnathan Franklin. In reality, no one currently on the roster will come close to replicating the season Franklin had a year ago. However, it's imperative that a solid option (or options) can come to the forefront and be a stabilizer at the position.
Additionally, more explosiveness is needed from the receiver corps. The majority of the personnel are now sophomores and with experience should come an improvement in production.
UCLA lost its entire starting secondary from a year ago. With numbers and depth extremely shallow, it provides an opportunity for the current members of the team to stand out. The Bruins have four very talented prospects entering in the summer that could make noise.
Lastly, a fourth starter is needed to round out the ultra-talented linebacker unit. That starter could be an incoming freshman or it very well could be a member participating currently in spring ball.
Here are five Bruins to watch during spring practice.
