Texas Football: Meet Texas' New Starters for 2014

Marcus Johnson is ready to go from big-play specialist to an every-down threat.

The Longhorns have to replace seven departed starters from the 2013 roster. Past the midway point of fall camp, the leaders to fill those spots are pretty apparent.

Charlie Strong must replace two starters along the offensive line, leading receiver Mike Davis, safety Adrian Phillips and All-American defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat. Additionally, he must address the spots he opened up when he dismissed receiver Kendall Sanders and suspended safety Josh Turner.

Strong's work is cut out for him, but he does have some decent experience to pull from. Linemen Kent Perkins and Sedrick Flowers each have a start under their belts along with some steady reserve action. Receiver Marcus Johnson is also a no-brainer after making a few starts as a sophomore.

The rest are entering new territory, playing positions that must produce on a weekly basis.
