Next Year's Depth Chart

I guess that since everyone else has already done this, I should do it too. I know that we'll see freshmen that make an impact, and there are some things we still don't know, but I'm going to take a stab at next season's two deep.

QB: Jevan Snead / Nathan Stanley
HB: Cordera Eason / Brandon Bolden
FB: Andy Hartmann / Derrick Davis
WR: Shay Hodge / Andrew Harris
WR: Markeith Summers / Melvin Harris
ATH: Dexter McCluster / Lionel Breaux
TE: Gerald Harris / EJ Epperson
LT: Bradley Sowell / Logan Clair
LG: Reid Neely / Alex Washington
C: Daverin Geralds / Brandon Green
RG: Rishaw Johnson / Don Mosley
RT: John Jerry / Logan Clair

I'm hoping that Stanley will get the reins handed to him much earlier than Billy Tapp did in blowouts. We have to groom him for the future. I also don't count on any receivers we sign making the two-deep, but I would love to be wrong. I think that Logan Clair will be a servicable backup at both tackle spots.

LE: Kentrell Lockett / Gerald Rivers
RE: Marcus Tillman / Emmanuel Stephens
DT: Ted Laurent / Lawon Scott
NT: Jerrell Powe / Justin Smith
LOLB: Allen Walker / Lamar Brumfield
MLB: Jonathan Cornell / Jason Jones
ROLB: Patrick Trahan / Lekenwic Haynes
CB: Cassius Vaughn / James Scott
CB: Marshay Green / Demond Washington
Nickel: Marcus Temple / Derrick Herman
FS: Kendrick Lewis / Jamar Hornsby
SS: Johnny Brown / Jamar Hornsby

As you can see, nothing crazy. I just don't think that our coaches are the type of coaches who want a two-deep riddled with new players. I thought about putting Hornsby as the starter at SS, but I put Brown there because he played a good bit of SS for us this season and will have another spring's worth of practice there. I like Johnny Brown a lot, and I think we're going to have a very successful secondary next season. The future looks bright for the defense.

I believe that the purpose of this signing class is to bring in 25 players, 20 to 22 of whom we can redshirt. I for one love this strategy and wish we had more fifth year seniors. We would have been a different team this year without Maurice Miller, Jason Cook, Ashlee Palmer and Jamarca Sanford.

Any changes you all want to make to the depth chart?
