WR DAVID DOUGLAS SENIOR
The team's most consistent receiver last season, with 52 receptions for 515 yards and 5 TDs, Douglas will be Nick Foles's safety valve underneath. Coach Mike Stoops says that this receiving corps—if Juron Criner is healthy—is the best he's had in Tucson.
QB NICK FOLES SENIOR
Foles has thrown for 5,677 yards and 39 touchdowns in two seasons at Arizona, but the 2011 Heisman dark horse was also sacked 23 times last season. This year, behind an inexperienced offensive line, Foles's ability to make quick decisions will be key.
LB PAUL VASSALLO SENIOR
Vassallo led the D in tackles (104) last year and will be counted upon heavily this fall, with the departure of three linebackers and starter Jake Fisher not expected to return from a knee injury until late in the year.
CB TREVIN WADE SENIOR
Despite an 85-yard interception return against Iowa, Wade was underwhelming in'10, taking a step backwards after nine picks in his first two years. "We need Trevin Wade to be the old Trevin Wade," says Stoops.
