4. Kansas: This is the biggest strength of a Jayhawks team trying to rebuild. KU's been strong here even under Turner Gill, but never stronger than it is right now. James Sims is the headliner coming off a 1,000-yard season, but the depth here is silly. Tony Pierson is one of the league's best home-run hitters and Darrian Miller is back on the roster after a strong freshman season and being dismissed from the team before the 2012 season. If Brandon Bourbon can stay healthy he could contribute and Taylor Cox is a decent reserve, too.
