I think you can draw a lot on how certain players are doing based on how the coaches and other players talk about them. With that in mind, I figured I'd give a shot at a two deep with some notes. This is what I think the depth chart is right now, but I'll note if I think it will change.


  • Justin Fields
  • Gunnar Hoak

I fully expect CJ Stroud to seize the backup job by mid-season. I think the initial depth chart will show Hoak though. 


  • Trey Sermon
  • Master Teague
  • Marcus Crowley

I expect like a 55/45 split to start the season between Sermon and Teague. Once Crowley is healthy you'll see him get some meaningful snaps too. Miyan Williams and Run DMC might get some snaps here in blowouts. 


  • Luke Farrell OR Jeremy Ruckert
  • Jake Hausmann

Co-starters for Farrell and Ruckert. It feels like we used two TE sets a lot last year, but Dan Hope's snapcharts tell a different story.

WR - X

  • Jaylen Harris OR Gee Scott Jr
  • Julian Fleming

The hardest position to project is the X receiver. Traditionally you'd see a bigger receiver here (Mike Thomas, Austin Mack, Ben Victor), but Jameson Williams may be hard to keep off the field as a top three receiver. Williams is probably better suited for Z, so I think you could see snaps with Olave at X and Williams at Z. Fleming could also very easily be a Z.

WR - H

  • Garrett Wilson
  • Jaxon Smith-Njigba
  • Demario McCall

I expect a 90%+ snapshare for Wilson here but JSN will play.

WR - Z

  • Chris Olave
  • Jameson Williams

Notes above about the X position apply here too.


  • Thayer Munford
  • Paris Johnson Jr


  • Harry Miller
  • Gavin Cupp


  • Josh Myers
  • Harry Miller

I think you'll see offensive line musical chairs if Josh Myers were not able to play.


  • Wyatt Davis
  • Enokk Vimahi


  • Nick Petit-Frere
  • Dawand Jones



  • Zack Harrison
  • Tyler Friday OR Javonte Jean-Baptise


  • Tommy Togiai
  • Antwuan Jackson


  • Taron Vincent
  • Jerron Cage

This would be Haskell Garrett's starting spot but I'm assuming he'll be recovering when this depth chart comes out.


  • Tyreke Smith OR Jonathan Cooper
  • Noah Potter


  • Baron Browning
  • K'Vaughan Pope


  • Tuf Borland
  • Teradja Mitchell

Sorry I missed this on first draft. I think Mitchell will get PT but Borland will be a clear, not "OR", starter. 


  • Pete Werner
  • Justin Hilliard OR Kourt Williams


  • Shaun Wade
  • Cam Brown 


  • Marcus Williamson
  • Ronnie Hickman


  • Sevyn Banks
  • Cam Brown

Safety in one high looks:

  • Josh Proctor
  • Marcus Hooker

FS in two high looks

  • Marcus Hooker
  • Lathan Ransom

SS in two high looks

  • Josh Proctor
  • Bryson Shaw



  • Blake Haubeil
  • Jake Seibert


  • Drue Chrisman


  • Roen McCullough


  • Garrett Wilson
  • Julian Fleming

I think you'll see Fleming returning something this year


  • Demario McCall
  • Mookie Cooper (in up to 4 games)
