Football: Depth chart

In case you haven’t seen it yet, here is the post-spring depth chart.

Some thoughts:

  • The battle for the backup quarterback job could be one of the most competitive in fall camp. Neither Brock Mansion nor Allan Bridgford really separated himself during the spring. Mansion, of course, has a little experience. Bridgford, though, could benefit from getting the reps since he is only going to be a sophomore and the job theoretically could be his someday.
  • You can probably flip-flop Schwartz and Summers-Gavin. As long as left-hander Zach Maynard is the quarterback, Schwartz likely will play right tackle to protect his blind side.
  • Bill Tyndall really made some headway this spring. Interesting he gets the nod over Sam DeMartinis as one of the backup offensive tackles.
  • Will Kapp’s injuries appear to be catching up to him. He’s no longer on the two-deep at fullback.
  • With his experience and successful spring, Michael Calvin is solidly the No. 3 receiver. Coleman Edmond may be getting the nod as the other backup because he’s a senior — it’s hard to imagine him getting reps over Kaelin Clay at this point.
  • You have to wonder if Chris McCain would be on the two-deep at outside linebacker had he not suffered a concussion this spring. He had stood out until he was injured.

    Michael Calvin could be this year’s Chris Conte – languish for three years then make the best of his last chance and become All-Pac 10 and drafted. What the heck, why not?
