Senior defensive back Preston Hadley and junior wide receiver Cody Hoffman both shared their thoughts into who they thought was the best unit on the team.

“Oh, they’re all good,” Hadley said . “I think every unit has its strengths but I think definitely the most important is the D-line.”

Hadley helped the defensive line last year with 51 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss, one sack and one quarterback hurry. He also tied for ninth nationally in pass breakups with 14.

Hoffman, who works on the offensive side of the football, believed the offensive line was the best unit on the team.

“I feel like we’re deep in every position,” Hoffman said. “I’d probably say the offensive line because they are returning the most starters. The receiver unit, at the same time, is also great because we lost only two players from last season. We’re young and we have a lot of potential.”

Hoffman led the team last year in all receiving categories with 61 catches, 943 yards and 10 touchdowns while returning 36 kickoffs for 879 yards and one touchdown . He also set BYU’s single-season record for kickoff returns and kickoff yards.
