The Missouri Tigers were one of the most surprising teams in the country last season. The team finished ranked No. 5 with a thrilling Cotton Bowl victory over the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Mizzou lost a lot of their biggest contributors from last season, clearing the way for several breakout candidates in 2014.
With Henry Josey joining the Philadelphia Eagles, Hansbrough will be in line to pick up a much bigger workload in the upcoming season. As a backup in 2013, Hansbrough ran for 685 yards on 6.0 yards per carry with four touchdowns.
As a sophomore last season, Brothers racked up 70 tackles and three interceptions. In 2014, the Mizzou faithful hope to see the talented junior take his playmaking abilities to the next level.
The Tigers lost three incredibly talented receivers in the offseason with Marcus Lucas and L'Damian Washington heading to the NFL, and Dorial Green-Beckham being dismissed from the team because he's human garbage, ( he pushed an 18-year-old female down several stairs). Sasser now finds himself at the top of the depth chart. The senior grabbed 26 catches for 361 yards last season.
Golden will once again be in the mix of Coach Gary Pinkel's defensive line rotation, and with Michael Sam and Kony Ealy in the NFL, he'll likely see a few more snaps. The senior compiled 6.5 sacks last season, and the defense will need Golden and Shane Ray to fill the void left by Ealy and Sam.
Mauk filled in beautifully in 2013 when James Franklin went down in Athens against Georgia. He helped put the Bulldogs down, and then went 3-1 in his four starts following that. In limited action Mauk threw for 1,071 yards with 11 TDs and 2 INTs, adding 229 yards on 41 carries and a TD on the ground. Mizzou fans can't wait to see what the sophomore will do now that the Tigers are his team.
