    4-9. Spruce and Nembot are first day draft picks. 70th ranked recruiting class and we all ignore reality and talk about the positive direction of the program.

    Best chance for an upset: Since the Buffs will be dogs in all the PAC-12 games, at Oregon State and at Washington State
    Best offensive player (or player most likely to be all-conference): Nembot
    Best defensive player (or player most likely to be all-conference): McCartney (massive improvement coming)
    Breakout player: Patrick Carr
    Most disappointing player: C. Powell
    Bold prediction: 2 PAC victories

    Time to admit I was wrong. Clearly Nembot is not going to be the best offensive player. In fact he looks to have regressed to his 2013 self. Five wins is still possible as I thought a loss to Hawaii would happen, I just didn't think the team would look SO bad (From coaching right on down it was mostly negative after week 1). Looking more like between 1-12 and 3-10 now. That being said, my McCartney pick is looking solid as is my most disappointing pick.

    The first day of the draft is just the first round now. Hard to believe both of them go first round. Maybe under the old format where the first day was rounds 1-3.

    Nembot will be a first day selection after scouts see him in person. Freaky athletic, improvement every year, and no character concerns. People are gonna love what they see at the combine or pro day and he'll shoot up boards.

    If Nembot has a good year, it's easy to see him going in the 1st round with the physical tools he possesses. Even if Spruce has a solid year again, I think he's a stretch for the 1st round solely because I don't think he has the top end speed that scouts want in a 1st round WR. Maybe he shows out at the Combine and opens some eyes, though. Either way, that's why it's a bold prediction.

    Bold predictions: we lose 1 OOC game, but beat Stanford at home. Nembot goes in the top 10 of next year's draft. Lindgren gets a G5 head coaching gig after the season.

    Nembot is Nate S., and scouts will see that. Spruce is going to prove himself, and carry too much of our offense with style and grace! It will happen!
