The Notre Dame football team should be one of the best in the country in 2022, especially if these two position groups surprise in a good way.
We are just a few weeks away from the start of the 2022 college football season, and for the Notre Dame football team, expectations are high. The Irish have a daunting schedule ahead of them, and a first-year head coach, but there is enough talent on both sides of the ball to hang with anyone they take the field against.
Marcus Freeman saw the return of many key players this offseason, some of which could have gone on to the NFL. Guys like Isaiah Foskey on defense, and Jarrett Patterson on offense, both could have been Day 2 picks, but them coming back could cement their places in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft.
