With the wonderfully surprising news of Lewan’s return I thought a quick post to celebrate the glory of a real depth chart at the offensive line for the first time in what seems like forever.
Note – I’m making a few assumptions just to illustrate this. Obviously if Lewan were to miss a game they would probably shift things around so the best available back-up comes in and Schofield moves to LT. I’m also making the assumption that Bryant wins the starting job at RG even though I think that is the one position where things are totally up in the air.
- Lewan & Schofield
- Braden & Magnuson
- Fox & Tuley-Tillman
- Kalis & Bryant
- Bars & Burzynski
- Bosch & Dawson
I honestly hope that a 6’1” walk-on doesn’t end up having to play a lot of guard, but I don’t want to sell Burzynski short since he clearly did some good things this past year. If I were him, I would work all summer on learning to snap the ball and getting in the mix to be a back-up center. You can live with a 6’1” center and there’s a potential opportunity on the depth chart.
I also wonder if Magnuson or Braden could be an option at RG if they’re truly one of the 5 best guys. I suppose a long-shot option would be to put Braden at RT and move Schofield back to RG.
RIP horrific looking depth charts that feature true-freshmen in the 2-deep.
Also, Magnus has a full depth chart prediction on his site right now: http://touchthebanner.blogspot.com/2013/01/premature-2013-depth-chart.html
