oh hey depth chart

Hey, big fella

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

The usual caveats apply: Iowa football depth charts don't always mean a lot. Iowa football depth charts in March probably mean even less. But, hell, we don't have much to talk about at the moment, so...

OFFENSE

QB: Jake Rudock, Cody Sokol / C.J. Beathard
RB: Mark Weisman/Damon Bullock, Jordan Canzeri
YB: Jake Duzey, Henry Krieger-Coble
WR: Kevonte Martin-Manley, Jordan Cotton
WR: Tevaun Smith, Jacob Hillyer
TE: C.J. Fiedorowicz, Ray Hamilton
LT: Brandon Scherff, Ryan Ward
LG: Conor Boffeli, Eric Simmons / Drew Clark
C: Austin Blythe, Tommy Gaul/Eric Simmons
RG: Andrew Donnal, Jordan Walsh
RT: Brett Van Sloten, Cole Croston / Mitch Keppy

"YB" means Y-back, the new position in Iowa's offense. It seems to be replacing the fullback and is for the smaller tight-ends. So basically it's an H-back.

Croston, Keppy, and Ward are all redshirt freshmen; Croston was a walk-on, if memory serves.

As speculated, Blythe has moved from guard to center.

DEFENSE

DE: Drew Ott, Mike Hardy / Riley McMinn
DT: Darian Cooper, Jaleel Johnson
DT: Carl Davis, Faith Ekakitie
DE: Dominic Alvis, Riley McMinn / Daumantas Venckus-Cucchiara
OLB: Christian Kirksey, Travis Perry
MLB: James Morris, Quinton Alston
WLB: Anthony Hitchens, Cole Fisher
CB: B.J. Lowery, Maurice Fleming
CB: Jordan Lomax, Sean Draper
FS: Tanner Miller, Johnny Lowdermilk / Anthony Gair
SS: Nico Law, Johnny Lowdermilk / Anthony Gair

That defensive end situation looks terrifying.

Ditto the back-up linebackers.

Ditto the back-up safeties.

Lomax being ahead of Draper and Buford, two guys who saw action last year, would seem to further support the coaches' high opinion of him.

SPECIAL TEAMS

K: Mike Meyer, Marshall Koehn
P: Connor Kornbrath, Jonny Mullings
