Parker Orms, CB, So., Colorado: Orms was the starting nickel back in 2010 before he blew out his knee on the third play of the season-opener against Colorado State. He's now No. 1 at cornerback -- the Buffs more worrisome position -- despite sitting out spring practices.

As the Buffs look to establish a dominate ground game again under offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, it appears the coaches have found another powerful lead blocker in Evan Harrington. Embree said Monday the converted linebacker leads Tyler Ahles in the competition for the starting job. "They're both physical, but Evan's a little farther along on the playbook and understanding what we want, who to block and how we want it done," Embree said. "I'd say he has the edge right now." Harrington, a senior who transferred to CU from College of the Canyons in 2010, only saw action on six defensive plays last season. He might eclipse that number on the Buffs' first drive of the season at Hawaii if the offense is executing the game plan.

Pac-12 competition -- California? -- eek! Colorado's Tyler Hansen has started one game against a Pac-12 foe. Last fall, he completed 18 of 34 for 166 yards with three interceptions in a 52-7 defeat at California. One of his interceptions was returned 41 yards for a touchdown. One of his completions was fumbled and returned 81 yards for another TD.

Tyler Hansen, Colorado: The good news for Hansen is the job is his and he no longer has to worry about the coach's son, as he did under Dan Hawkins with Cody Hawkins. The bad news also is it's all on him, though Hansen seems like the sort who would see that as good news. A more tangible worry for Hansen is a lack of depth at receiver. Paul Richardson can ball and Toney Clemons is solid. After that, things are thin.
