-Antonio Underwood shuffles from RG to LG.

-Chase Farris makes a dramatic move going from third string strong end defensively to back up right guard.

-He replaces Tommy Brown, who's no longer on the two deep.

-Reid Fragel edges out true freshman Taylor Decker as starter at right tackle.

-As well chronicled, Jake Stoneburner completes the move to H wide receiver, leaving the tight end role to be shared by the collective skill trust of Nick Vannett and Jeff Heuerman.

-Jordan Hall is predictably absent from the depth chart with injury.

-Bri'onte Dunn doesn't appear to be facing any discipline as he's the top backup at halfback.

-Corey Brown moves to Z WR, Evan Spencer falls to backup, and Verlon Reed falls off the depth chart all together.


-Noah Spence replaces J.T. Moore as co-backup Leo.

-Backup nose tackle is no longer Joel Hale OR Chris Carter. Hale's won the backup job while Carter will be third string.

-Adolphus Washington emerges as top backup at tackle along with Tommy Schutt. Michael Bennett moves to end where he won the starting strong end job (due to the injury rehabilitation of Nathan Williams and Adam Bellamy's continued absence from the team).

-J.T. Moore becomes top backup at strong end.

-Josh Perry's now top backup at Sam. Stewart Smith no longer factors in to the two deep.

-Camren Williams wins the top backup mike gig replacing Connor Crowell.

-Crowell moves to top backup at Will succeeding Luke Roberts. David Perkins is now 3rd string at WLB.

-Adam Griffin now top backup at right CB. Travis Howard wins the starting job (he'd previously been in competition with Doran Grant).

-Christian Bryant and C.J. Barnett have swapped places as starters; Bryant is now listed as the top effective strong safety with Barnett the starter at free safety.

-Doran Grant is now top backup at left CB.

Special forces:

-Bryce Haynes wins the long snapper job.

-Corey Brown (of the Philly variety) is both the top punt returner and kick returner.

-His top backup at punt returner is Devin Smith while his partner in crime in kick returns is Bri'onte Dunn.
