Football: Depth chart issues

There are some conflicts between the official depth chart that has been released and what Jeff Tedford told us yesterday. Some of that, Tedford said today, is because a few things still haven’t been resolved. “Talk to me next Thursday,” he said.

A couple of points:

  • Tedford said not to make too much of the fact that Brian Schenke is listed at right guard. He said Justin Cheadle is still very much in the mix to start and they will decide that next week. But it does look like Schwenke will be playing one of the guard positions.
  • Bryant Nnabufie is listed as the backup at both cornerback spots. That was a typo/oversight. Steve Williams is the other backup.
  • Josh Hill is indeed one of the starting safeties. Sean Cattouse has dropped into a backup role, partly because he missed a good chunk of camp with a pulled hamstring.
  • Chris Conte is the No. 2 kick returner, but he is the “off returner,” meaning he is primarily an extra blocker.
