Those are just the back-ups. Stanford's starting line will likely be highlighted by its left side. That's where 6-6, 318-pound LT Andrus Peat, the top 2012 recruit in the country, and monstrous senior LG David Yankey line up. We all know that the Cardinal love to run power, and the latter player may be the best pull blocker in the country. Meanwhile, don't sleep on the other side of the line: David Shaw thinks RG Kevin Danser is an all-conference talent, while senior RT Cam Fleming has quietly locked down his side for years now.
3. How's the Stanford running back depth chart stacking up? Is it a 2010-11 type season with a three to four-man platoon?
It is a 2010-type plan. Shaw has spoken of a five-man rotation at running back. He really believes in the depth of his stable at this position. Anthony Wilkerson and Tyler Gaffney are the two top dogs, but the staff has promised that Remound Wright, Ricky Seale, and Barry Sanders will all play. Each guy has his own specialities, so Shaw will mix and match them appropriately.
