Woodson threw for 3,515 yards and 31 touchdowns in 2006. Burton had 77 catches for 1,036 yards and 12 scores. Tamme caught 32 passes for 386 yards and two touchdowns.
Also returning will be receiver Dicky Lyons (50 catches for 822 yards and nine touchdowns) and running backs Rafael Little (673 yards rushing, 392 yards receiving), Tony Dixon and Alfonso Smith. "It is a good problem to have with a lot of returning stars, but also you have to keep these guys grounded, too. We have not dealt well with success around here very well," Phillips said. "The thing we have to do is keep them working hard. We have good character. When you have guys like we have, it makes it easier to get them going."
Phillips doesn't think it is unfair to expect better production from all his returning players, including Woodson.
"I think definitely it is realistic. There are a lot of things we can improve on," Phillips said. "Andre can throw for 4,000 yards and two interceptions or no interceptions. There is a lot he can do better.
"We can do better in the run game. It has to be something we can hang our hats on. People are going to try to start taking away our pass game. They are going to make us run the ball to be successful this year."
Kentucky ran for only 98.6 yards per game last year, a figure Phillips says must improve. While UK won't have a dominant back, Little, Dixon and Smith all have speed and adequate power to run inside.
"When you are like we are in the offensive line, it is better to have more backs rather than just one dominant back," Phillips said. "We don't ask our guys up front to mash people. We ask them to get a hat (helmet) on a hat and let these little backs find a seam. They are not going to knock people back while running the ball, but they can squirt through holes and make big plays.
"I think our offensive line will be fine. Athletically, they are as good as anybody we have had around here. Mentally, they are strong. They don't have a lot of size, but there are some 280- and 290-pounders in there that we feel we can get a hat on somebody. If they do that, we have good enough backs to make people miss and gain yardage."
Phillips expects Stevie Johnson and David Jones to blossom into big-play receivers to go with Burton and Lyons. He also thinks redshirt freshman Terrence Jones could be a surprise.
Kentucky seems so set at the skilled spots that Phillips admits it will be hard for a true freshman to get on the field.
"At receiver, those young guys are going to have to be really special to get on the field for us this year. You don't want to waste a year when they only get five or 10 snaps a game when you can get that out of somebody else," Phillips said. "Plus, you don't want those top guys on the sideline while some freshmen is in the game.
"It will be that way at running back, too. Our running back situation is pretty good, and that's where you want to be at. That is where we thought we could be in year four or five here. Now we just have to go out and make sure we keep getting better."
