Our first Mike Riley Depth Chart

Chongo!

Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports
  • Expect McMullen, Collins, Valentine, Gangwish, Rose-Ivey, Banderas, Young, Davie, Cockrell, Gerry, and Rose to receive black practice jerseys at some point this week.
  • Westerkamp is your punt returner, so we'll find out if it was Els' "what is a block" schemes or Westerkamp's hands that were the problem in 2013.
  • Newby on kickoff returns. Wonder about the wisdom of putting an offensive starter on special teams like this, but hey, that's Bruce Read's job, not mine. JUST DON'T DROP IT.
  • Fyfe is #2 on the depth chart but if Armstrong goes down, does Fyfe actually get the job or do they go straight to Bush?
  • Looks like we'll have to get to know Lewis, Utter, Reeves, CHONGO, and Gates as our starters on the OL - Cavanaugh has been pretty adamant about chemistry.
  • Tight ends aren't really separated but it looks to be confirmed that Snyder is red-shirting.
  • Newby is the RB, as expected. And then there's everyone else. Let's just run the diamond formation every time.
  • Looks like three freshman starters: Morgan, Young, and Ober. Linebacker is going to be an adventure for sure.
  • Drew Brown is the all-around kicker, Foltz on punts. No shocks here.
