On offense, running back Marty Johnson has a chance to breakout if he stays healthy and proves the early part of 2002 was no fluke. Johnson, a big interior back that reminds many of former Utah runner Chris Fuamata-Ma'afala (though tougher), was off to a scorching start prior to injuring his knee during the seasons second game. Johnson is a punishing runner that carries the pile and picks up a lot of yardage off initial contact. His back-up, Brandon Warfield did a solid job when handed the ball. Warfield, a quick ball carrier best in a straight line, can also catch the pass out of the backfield. He projects as a third down back. Tackle Sean Souza will get looks at right guard.
Jason Kafusi is the next brother in a long line of Kafusi's that have been productive players at Utah. Kafusi is an undersized yet explosive pass rusher. Like many of his brothers' he's a solid, not spectacular, pro-prospect. Arnold Parker, a natural safety, looked woeful at cornerback last season. Parker is a big, strong defensive back best defending the run between the hashes. He is neither quick nor fluid in coverage and must play facing the quarterback. Still, his size and general athleticism are intriguing.
