True frosh that are in the two-deep:
LT- Erik Magnuson
KR/PR- Dennis Norfleet
FS- Jarrod WIlson
WLB- James Ross
MLB- Joe Bolden
It's probably nothing, but it is worthwhile to point out that Clark and Fitz are on the depth chart. Clark #2 WDE behind Black.
The starting DL is surprising to me with Roh - Washington - Campbell - Black. I'm not sure if it's good news that Washington is starting at NT and Campbell being at DT. IMO, Campbell is a better fit at three tech than one, but I hope that this move (Black back to WDE) is because Washington was impressive and not because Black couldn't step up at DT. Also, Black at 279 is a huge WDE.
No Jehu Chesson in the top 7 WRs is a little surprising, but I like the guys above him with guys like Robinson, Roundtree, Gallon, and Gardner. Gardner listed both as backup QB and 4-5 WR.
Kalis at third team is to be expected for the opener, but I expect that to change as the season nears.
The depth at tackle is terrifying. If one of them gets hurt, we have a walk on or freshmen. Maybe (if Schofield goes down), Omameh would go to RT and Burzynski/Kalis would fill in at OG.
Sounds like Kwiatkowski will get every opportunity to contribute as a walkon at TE, but I think Williams' size and Funchess's athletic ability will make it hard to keep those guys off the field.
It'll be weird having Furman and Norfleet back on KR, but I don't even know if those will matter anymore. It'll be funny having a 7-inch height difference between our two returners.
I'm excited that Ross beat out Hawthorne for the backup WILL spot. That kid's gonna be special.
Kind of sucks Mags makes the two deep. He said he didn't EE because he figured he'd RS.
He can still RS though - Lewan plays almost the whole game every time. It's not infeasible to see Magnuson not play this year.
True and I hope that's the case.
Didn't we call Washington as the surprise player?
We're the best. It'd be awesome having him contribute some serious PT.
Hell yea it would, and Ash/Wilkins also.
I think Mealer would move to RT with any injury to a T... He has played it before and worked at RT this offseason... Then Joey bumps into the LG spot... Lets hope for another healthy year especially on the OL
Way too much talk about injuries here. Someone is sure to jinx the season at this rate.
Side note: Brian from Mgoblog made a comment about cornerbacks not getting injured that much on their podcast, the fool.
Lets hope everyone stays healthy!
I agree. I think the coaches have planned all along to bump Schofield over if anything happens to Lewan, and then fill the RT slot with either Mealer, Gunderson, or Braden. I see Braden hitting the field well before Magnusson.
