Texas Football: Charlie Strong's Biggest Concerns Post-Spring Practice
Michael Thomas
Charlie Strong's team is still a long way from being a finished product.

Spring football may be over for the Texas Longhorns, but Charlie Strong has no shortage of concerns as he gears up for the summer. None being bigger than David Ash's foot.

The Orange-White scrimmage exposed some major weaknesses within Strong's new team, especially at the quarterback position. Tyrone Swoopes recovered from a rough start to turn in a strong performance, but the lack of depth behind him could spell trouble if Ash's health troubles extend well into the season.

At least it's not the safety position, where at least one sieve is masquerading as a strong safety while an underclassman tries to grow into the role.

These issues were to be expected, and have been chief concerns since the end of last season. However, the deficiencies at running back and along the offensive line, which were supposed to be strong points, have just as much potential to keep Strong up at night.
