Here are my thoughts. Be sure to leave yours in the comments section.
-- Brandon Robinson's missing? Not sure what the story is there. He played in the last scrimmage. No reported injury or suspension. Hopefully this will be clarified this week.
-- The line is (L to R) Castonzo, Ramsey, Tennant, Claiborne, Lapham. Could anyone have predicted that lineup when TOB left? I know our leftside is solid. I think the right side will catch up early in the season.
-- True freshman on the two deep: Cleary, Haden, LeGrande, Johnson, Fletcher, and Quigley. That's six. I am guessing more true freshmen will play. The biggest surprise and good harbinger is Cleary at Right Tackle. Jags keeps comparing him to Castonzo, so maybe he'll be another great BC lineman. Fletcher enrolled early, so his success is not a surprise. Johnson was highly touted so it is nice to see him crack the line up. LeGrande is more of a surprise and another sign that the most recent recruiting class will pay dividends early.
-- Davis as starter. He had a great freshman year and then suffered a terrible injury last year. Now he's won his way back into the starting lineup. Good for him.
-- Akins still at Linebacker. For all the experimentation, Akins is still listed at LB. My guess is that he'll be used in multiple spots.
-- Davis and Boek are both listed as Juniors. Fans hoped both would gain a year of eligibility via their respective medical issues. This still might break their ways and they might still have three years of playing time left.
-- Morrissey breaks into the LB two deep. Williams and Thompson didn't. These guys are all still young but it shows how unpredictable recruiting ratings are.
-- No punt returner listed. I guess we'll find out Saturday.
Stay tuned for any adjustments as the game approaches.

Thoughts on the latest Depth Chart
BC released a new depth chart. It is not labeled specifically for Kent State but is probably very close to what you'll see this week.
