  • Note the lack of an OR between Ash and McCoy, but also paired with Brown presser assurances McCoy "would play"
  • I interpret the Hills/Gray 3rd team split as Hills 3rd down back and Gray Wildcat operator. But that's my guess
  • Kendall Sanders and Cayleb Jones are definitely playing this year
  • Top 7 WRs: Shipley, Davis, Goodwin, Harris, Jackson, Sanders, Jones
  • They weren't blowing smoke about Poehlmann. Really proud of him
  • DJ Monroe listed as a WR is just a place to reflect his role. Nothing changed here
  • No Daje Johnson because he was suspended for breaking team rules
  • Greg Daniels makes a massive push at TE. Exciting stuff there
  • Jalen Overstreet and Connor Brewer probably both redshirt
  • Bergeron/Brown as co-starters
Position No. Player | No. Player | No. Player
Buck 44 Jackson Jeffcoat | 88 Cedric Reed | 1 Shiro Davis
Tackle (Nose) 96 Chris Whaley | 85 Ashton Dorsey | 69 Kyle Kriegel
Tackle 97 Brandon Moore | 99 Desmond Jackson | 90 Malcom Brown
Strong End 80 Alex Okafor | 92 Reggie Wilson
Strongside LB 7 Demarco Cobbs | 11 Tevin Jackson
Middle LB 33 Steve Edmond | 35 Kendall Thompson OR 55 Dalton Santos
Weakside LB 3 Jordan Hicks | 35 Kendall Thompson OR 19 Peter Jinkens
Right CB 6 Quandre Diggs | 21 Duke Thomas | 31 Leroy Scott
Free Safety 4 Kenny Vaccaro |
25 Josh Turner
Strong Safety 17 Adrian Phillips | 2 Mykkele Thompson
Left CB 23 Carrington Byndom | 29 Sheroid Evans | 31 Leroy Scott
Punter 15 Alex King | 14 William Russ

  • Look at the DT depth chart. Moore/Whaley. Whaley at nose?!? I argued some time ago that we had five legit dudes. Looks like that's the case. Brown said Whaley is currently around 290 running a 4.7 40. They're all going to play a lot and our rotation will be beastly
  • No surprises at LB, but look at Dalton Santos and Jinkens already in the mix
  • Great secondary depth chart. Brown said Turner and Thompson are first two DBs off of the bench
  • Sheroid Evans at LCB. Wow. If he has the matching skill set, his physical potential is NFL 1st rounder
  • Josh Turner at FS, will be a special teams mainstay

Position No. Player | No. Player | No. Player
Punt Returns 6 Quandre Diggs | 8 Jaxon Shipley
Kickoff Returns 26 D.J. Monroe | 6 Quandre Diggs
2 Mykelle Thompson | 84 Marquise Goodwin
Kickoffs 23 Nick Rose | 28 Nick Jordan
Holder 86 Cade McCrary | 15 Alex King
Snapper (PAT/FG) 45 Kyle Ashby | 37 Nate Boyer
Snapper (Punts) 45 Kyle Ashby | 37 Nate Boyer

  • Shipley is a potentially more dynamic punt returner, but I understand the logic of Diggs
  • Do we even see kickoffs to return? A bit surprised to see Thompson, but cool by me
  • Interesting to see how kicker shakes out when Fera returns
