A year after returning 19 starters, the Texas Longhorns are being hit with one of college football's inevitable realities—losing starters to graduation.
There are the obvious ones like Jackson Jeffcoat, Mike Davis and Anthony Fera. Having attended the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this week, each is fulfilling the expectation of moving on to the professional level.
But not every impact player gets to go to the NFL, starting safety Adrian Phillips being a prime example. Nonetheless, he will have to be replaced just as well as Jeffcoat.
From familiars Tyrone Swoopes and Desmond Jackson to relative unknowns like Adrian Colbert, filling those voids is a total team effort.
