"Caspers played in all 14 games last season, and should be a leader from the right side along with Bright, if the line stays that way. On the other hand, Burkett, the presumptive center, is a former four-star recruit, but has played just five career games, and hasn't had much experience.
It's undeniable that this is a talented bunch. However, talent alone will not remake this offensive line into what it was last year -- 2014's offensive line had three five stars, a four star, and a three star, yet it took them ten games to start working together effectively. Just like this year's line, all had some game experience, with a couple of stalwarts, but most had played only one year or sparingly.
How this line fits together will determine whether Stanford will sink or swim this season. The Cardinal has the offensive weapons to succeed -- it just needs give them opportunities to make plays, not something I can confidently say it will. If it doesn't, it could squander what could be Stanford's last year with arguably the most dynamic college football player in history."
