Vanderbilt Football Starts in Three Days: Get Your Complete Team Previews Here

Jerron Seymour returns to the 'Dores in 2013 bent on making us remember his place in this offense. - Kevin C. Cox

Vanderbilt opens their season on Thursday against SEC West rival Ole Miss. Here's a breakdown of every position on the Commodore roster and a look at who is primed to start when conference play starts up in three days.

Vanderbilt football kicks off their season in three days against a familiar foe. The Commodores will open 2013 against their designated SEC West rival Ole Miss in one of the opening weekend's biggest matchups.

It's taken a long and tumultuous off-season to get here, but game week is finally upon us. Vandy returns much of the talent that rallied to an exciting 27-26 win over the Rebels in Oxford last fall, and they'll hope to keep their recent run of success alive (three straight wins, 5-1 in their last six games against Mississippi) when Bo Wallace makes his first trip to Nashville this Thursday.

To prepare for the upcoming season, we've broken down every position on the Commodores' roster (except punter, so apologies to Taylor Hudson) and taken a look at every player who is primed to contribute in 2013. Here they are, nestled in one place for your Ole Miss-week enjoyment:

Quarterback: Austyn Carta-Samuels leads a young, talented group.

Wide Receiver: Jordan Matthews aims for Earl Bennett's receiving records.

Running Back: Wesley Tate, Brian Kimbrow, and Jerron Seymour try to replace a Vanderbilt legend.

Tight End: Can Kris Kentera and Steven Scheu add a new dimension to the offense?

Offensive Line: Finally, Vandy's O-Line is a strength in the SEC.

Defensive Tackle: Jared Morse returns, but could Adam Butler be the real story?

Defensive End: A-ZOO-BEE-KAY.

Linebacker: Chase Garnham and Karl Butler will teach the young guns how it's done.

Cornerback: Andre Hal: All-American?

Safety: Javon Marshall and Kenny Ladler won't be overlooked for long.

Kicker: Carey Spear just wants to hit things, but it turns out he's pretty good at field goals, too.
