With Fowler and Hart most likely out and Tenpenny, Karmara and Jones coming in the summer, that leaves Yeldon, Drake and Henry for spring...just those three equals a very talented backfield. How do you guys see the snaps being divided during spring practice and then the spring game? The coaches obviously know what they have in Yeldon so I see Drake and Henry getting a ton of carries during this time. My guess is Yeldon and Henry on one team and Drake and a walkon on the other???
Btw can you imagine how next spring will look like with all these RBs? WOW!!!

yep...i expect henry to leapfrog him
First off, I wouldn't rule out Fowler and Hart. Both of their rehabs are going well and I fully expect to see both during spring even if they don't start out the same as everyone else (might see them in black, etc.).
Second, I expect Henry to start off similar to Yeldon last year, in the mix, getting thrown into the fire a little, if you will, and progressing through the spring. Remember last year Yeldon sustained a hand fracture early on and he still was named the A-Day MVO.
As for A-Day - a lot will depend on how the players progress, especially at things that don't involve carrying the ball. The closest thing to a certainly, as I can tell, is that Yeldon tops the depth chart.
