Oregon Football: 5 Weakest Positions to Worry About

Though this kick was made, Alejandro Maldonado has been largely inconsistent.

"Weak position" is a relative term when it comes to the 2013 version of Oregon football. Fans probably aren't worried about the linebacker spot in the same way that, say, Colorado fans are worried about their team's entire defense.

But that doesn't mean this group is without flaws. Some of them, like place-kicking, have been the chief reason for the Ducks failing to return to the title game.

Keep in mind that a weak position doesn't necessarily mean the spot has bad players who aren't ready for college football. Sometimes it's a lack of depth. In other cases, it may be a lack of experience.

Every single unit has a chance to be above-average in 2013, and some positions, such as the secondary, will likely be among the nation's best. But there are several questionable spots that must be addressed if the Ducks wish to knock Stanford off the Pac-12 perch.

Here are the five weakest positions as we approach the spring game, though again, to be fair, any one of these spots could ultimately prove to be a strength by the time bowl season rolls around.
