After finishing 7-6 last year, the Purdue Boilermakers are looking to build on that finish and become players in The Big Ten Conference. Here is the outlook for The Boilermakers in 2018.

The Boilermakers did not have an explosive offense last year, but they did a good job of avoiding mistakes. The Boilermakers are hoping for QB Elijah Sindelar to take some steps forward. Sindelar hurt his ACL and continued to play at a high level. Sindelar is healthy now, and Purdue will rely on him to carry the offense. Purdue also has a special four headed RB rotation, led by Markell Jones and D.J. Knox. The offensive line is expected to be a strength, especially with the addition of grad transfer Dennis Edwards.

Purdue's defense was substantially better last year compared to 2016. Defensive Coordinators Nick Holt and Anthony Poindexter completely overhauled the system so that the defense could play faster. The system is built around defensive tackle Lorenzo Neal and Linebacker Markus Bailey. Purdue has a potential weak spot at the cornerback position, where they will look to replace Josh Okonye and Da'Wan Hunte. Purdue has returning starters at both safety spots in senior Jacob Thieneman and junior Navon Mosley. Holt and Poindexter want the unit to force more turnovers in 2018.

Special teams was considered a weakness for The Boilermakers last season. The Boilermakers received subpar kicking performances from Spencer Evans and J.D. Dellinger. Purdue is hoping either Evans or Dellinger makes a leap this year.
