UK Depth Chart Musings

Here is the Kentucky depth chart for Saturday.

Time for some observations:

Quarterback- Hartline is starting. The back up position is listed as Morgan Newton OR Ryan Mossakowski. Reports out of Lex-Vegas say that Moss is close to overtaking Newton as the back up. I didn't believe them until I saw the actual depth chart. This is a story in the making. Moss may see the field.

O-Line- 15 deep. 3 deep at left tackle, 2 deep at center, right tackle and both guard positions. But can they block?

RB's- Moncell Allen is starting fullback but expect him to carry the rock from the tailback position. Locke=#1. Duh.

Wide Receivers- Top 2 WR's: Chris Matthews and La'Rod King. Aaron Boyd is listed behind King. That young man has a lot to prove for being a much hyped four star recruit. The WR position could be THE break out unit. If the ball gets to them.

D-End- DeQuin Evans has a load to carry.

D-Line- Ricky Lumpkin is the only returning starter. Luke McDermott is a former walk-on that now has scholarship. Can we say question mark?

LB-The only returning guy is Danny Trevathan and that makes me feel good. Trevathan will be big this year. The other guys? You got me. The loss of Micha Johnson may hurt big time. His replacement is Ronnie Sneed. He played in 11 games and recorded 10 tackles in 2009. Not bad.

D-Backs- Bailey, Burden and Guy=Fast, Fast and Fast

Kicker- Not Lonus. Tydlacka. Thank you, Jesus.

Cobb- The only position that he is listed at as being a starter is holder. Expect him to be with the first team offense in some capacity.

P.S. I put my depth chart story up before KSR and mine is more in depth. Just sayin'.
