South Carolina Football 2011: Weak Tight End Group Will Need to Step Up

In 2010, South Carolina's weakness was obvious heading into the season.  The offensive line was a mess, and it took great coaching and a few players stepping up for it to become a cohesive unit. 

In 2011, the weakness is clear as well: the tight ends.  While not called upon to do much, this unit will be needed to provide a bit more offense than last year.

With Weslye Saunders being kicked off the team last year, it looked as though someone would have the opportunity to step up and be a contributor.  No one did, other than fullback/tight end Patrick DiMarco and, to some extent, Justice Cunningham (who is an excellent blocker).

This year, a crop of highly recruited freshmen tight ends with offensive skill-sets should be set to play a big role.
