The Jackets return eight starters on offense, including the entire offensive line.Roddy Jones, Stephen Hill and Tyler Melton are the only starters who won't return, and with several offensive linemen who were redshirted this past season, this could be the deepest group of linemen coach Paul Johnson has had.
