Here is William Wilkerson's way-too-early offensive two-deep for the 2016 football season

This will obviously change but here is an idea for what Wilkerson believes the offensive two-deep will look like going into the Longhorns season-opener against Notre Dame in Austin on Sept. 3.

I will say that this was the hardest way-too-early offensive two-deep I've put together in a couple of seasons, and that's a great thing for the Longhorns because of the depth they have at several positions. 

Trying to figure out who the starters are going to be at quarterback, two of the wide receiver positions, left guard, center, right guard, and right tackle was extremely difficult. The way I feel about the two-deep below will likely change by this time tomorrow. It's that up-in-the-air for me at this point. 

Needless to say, the spring is going to be a critical time for dozens of players as they try to position themselves as best they can in the eys of Sterlin Gilbert, Matt Mattox, Charlie Strong and the rest of the coaching staff.
