Interesting and ridiculously speculative question I'm posing today. What will our offensive core look like in five years?

Right now, they're fairly easy to identify. We know what makes this team tick. We know the key cogs in the wheel, clubs in the bag, crayons in the box, et cetera. Before we get into a semantics war, let me be clear, I'm talking about the 3-4 players we can't win without.

In my opinion, those players are Ryan, White, and Gonzalez. Jones is in the running, as are Turner and Blaylock. Feel free to disagree.

5 years from now, our offensive core won't be the same. If I had to guess, it will be Ryan, Jones, and the tight end we draft in 2013. Konz will be in the running, as will be the running back we draft in 2015 and Lamar Holmes. Call me optimistic. Call me delusional. But that's what I'm going with.

And now it's your turn. Predict away in the comments!
