    I hope there is enough competition that it changes 15-20 times between spring and the fourth week in August.

    Great depth chart! Thx,

    Do we know if Whittemore starts at safety or wide receiver?

    I think they said safety. There's more opportunity there in this class.

    The “ / “ typically means “or”
    So you’re not really going out on a limb here.

    Who made this list? Not the coaches. There are some tweaks needed to that chart. This will change by the time we start our first football game in Orlando next season.

    He should. Went out the 2nd game, so that should be almost a year. Not tall or heavy where it takes longer to recover. However, the CB position requires a lot of cutting, change of direction and lateral quickness. Could be 18 plus months until fully recovered and confident in his leg again.m to react without thinking or worry. Was injured in HS as well, so could simply be body not built for that type activity and breaks down over time? Hopefully ready for Fall

    I would have Grimes starting over Swain. The fsu game showed that he is a big time receiver waiting to happen.

    Put anybody but McWilliams at that spot behind Hendo.

    Grimes is an outside receiver right? He'd need to beat out Jefferson or Cleveland then.

    Elam may be 2nd cb over Mcwilliams. But Mcwilliams does have a big experience edge.

    Swain is the starter at slot, not Grimes’ position.

    Suggested updates on offense...Grimes is better than Cleveland, Toney is better than Swain, and Bleich was running 2nd string guard at the end of the season.

    WR Jefferson/Cleveland/Henderson/Wells
    WR Grimes/Hammond/Weston/
    WR Toney/Swain/Copeland/Marks
    RG Bleich/Moore/Simonds/White

    Suggested updates on defense...Elam over McWilliams, Black over Jackson (or Johnson) as he's going to play a lot this year. The DL/LB breakdown is a little confusing since we run a 3-4 front but man, do we have a lot of bodies for those spots!

    MLB Reese/Black/Jackson/Pierre/Miller (rehabbing?)
    CB Henderson/Elam/McWilliams/Edwards

    Seems to be a feeling that we potentially need a couple to transfer out to make room for grad transfer(s). Based on this chart some likely ones to me would be wr Wells, lb Brunson, and cb Edwards. After some years here and still at the bottom of the depth chart, just looks like they need to go elsewhere if they want to play. Not that I would favor pushing anyone out. I would hope they get their UF degree.

    I'm interested in how the DEs play out. Will greenard play more SDE or WDE? What about zuniga? Are carter and Langham becoming DTs or big DEs?

    Experience getting smoked. But maybe he'll make a big jump.
