    10b. Eric Richter, Colorado, DT: The 6-3, 315-pound Californian only got in action for seven plays last fall for the Buffs, but it's not for a lack of strength. When CU players were tested this offseason on the bench press, Richter banged out 51 reps at 225, 10 more reps than he did a year ago. "He doesn't need a cheerleader, he doesn't need a audience," says CU strength coach Malcolm Blacken, "he just needs a lot of weight on the bar to get motivated. A strength coach's dream -- a real living and breathing Frankenstein!"

    Good press. Hopefully Richter can give us some snaps, especially early in the season, so we're not relying so much on true freshman DTs. If he could just be a guy we could rely on to hold the point of attack in short yardage and goal line, it would mean so much for us this year.

    Hope he's been doing pilates over the off season.
