Starting quarterback Kirk Cousins will be in charge of the Green Offense in Saturday's annual spring game. Joining Cousins will be running backs Edwin Baker and Larry Caper giving the Green squad a sizeable advantage in the running game.
Looking to open holes for Baker and Caper and protect Cousins will be an offensive line with some question marks as Dan France, Micajah Reynolds, Blake Treadwell, Ethan Ruhland, Shawn Kamm and Zach Hueter will be tested during the day.
When Cousins looks to throw the ball, he will look for Keith Nichol, Bennie Fowler, Chris Rucker, Brad Sonntag and the much fought after Tony Lippett to be open at the receiver positions along with tight ends Brian Linthicum and Dion Sims.
Lippett will be asked to play on both sides of the ball and created a ruckus among the players when commissioner Mark Dantonio looked to force a trade of the talented Lippett to the White team.
While the Green team may have picked up an offensive advantage in the draft, it is the defense that will be tested on the day as William Gholston will look to Doug Curtis, Tyler Hoover and Anthony Rashad White to man the front.
The strength of the defense looks to be in the secondary as Jonny Adams will have Mylan Hicks, Trenton Robinson, Jairus Jones and two-way performer Tony Lippett to shut down the stronger White receiving core.
