Today marks the opening day of spring practice for the South Carolina Gamecocks.

South Carolina is hoping to build on two straight 11-win seasons starting this spring as they look to fill the void of some major leaders that left the program after last season.

Players like Marcus Lattimore, D.J. Swearinger and T.J. Johnson have been stalwarts of this South Carolina football emergence and it'll be a tough task to find players of equal caliber to fill the roles of these dynamic leaders.

Good thing for the Gamecocks that they've already got some players in place who are ready to step up.

Let's take a look at some of the positions to watch this upcoming spring practice for the Gamecocks.
