Now, time for observations....

Okay, first observations are....

1) Where is Conte?  I would have thought we'd see him backing up Ezeff or Johnson, but Cattouse and Brooks are there.  I like Jesse Brooks, I think he's a senior this year and I met him at the fantasy camp last year.  Maybe because he's a senior, coach has him there as recognition, but seems strange not to see Conte's name somewhere.  I guess this also mean we're definitely going to redshirt Steve Williams.

2) Where is Lagemann?  I thought the depth chart would include the slot receiver position, like it did post-spring.

3) Where is Ryan Davis?  I thought he'd at least be someone's backup.  Did the move of Browner from DE to LB squeeze Davis out of a backup role?  Is he now a third stringer?  Seems too talented for that.

4) On a related note, our d-line and LBs are deep....really really deep.  I don't know that we'll see much dropoff with substitutions.  We might notice a missed assignment or two, but in terms of talent, there's not much dropoff from the starters to the backups.

5) TE is 4-deep.  Its one of the only positions (QB being the other), where every possible name was mentioned as depth at the position.  Now, we know the hierarchy for QB is set, but I have to imagine they put all four TEs on the chart because there is still some uncertainty what the hhierarchy will be.

6) Donovan Edwards.  The chart confirms earlier talk that he can and will backup wherever he is needed on the line.
