Texas Football: Position-by-Position Preview of the the Longhorns' 2014 Roster

Jerrod Heard will make his long-awaited arrival on the Texas campus this Tuesday.

The Texas Longhorns' next crop of freshmen arrives on June 3, officially locking in the players available to Charlie Strong and his staff this season. 

Because the Longhorns, according to ESPN, return the most starting experience of any Big 12 program, few of the incoming players project to start. But given the lack of depth at key defensive positions, guys like Edwin Freeman and Poona Ford may be thrust into key roles.

Then, of course, there is the looming possibility that Jerrod Heard could bust his way to the backup job and end up starting before season's end.

Broken down by starters, backups and projected redshirts, here's the outlook for Heard's and every other Longhorn's position in 2014.
