One of the main reasons why many are projecting the Ducks to contend for a national championship is because the team returns a host of talented players on both sides of the ball this season.
But notable voids exist where guys like Michael Clay and Kyle Long lined up last season. In order for the Ducks to match or surpass last year's effort, new faces will be counted upon to grow up quickly and help replace some of the best players in school history

Update: Per 247sports, several decisions have been made regarding the depth chart, most notably that the punting duties have been given to Alejandro Maldonado over Dylan Ausherman. Thus, Ausherman's slide has been deleted from the piece. When the official two-deep is released, further edits will be made to reflect the depth chart.
