Wisconsin at Purdue: Depth Charts!

New, 34 comments

Danny Anthrop is not listed on this week's depth chart officially.

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Unlike last week, we can expect some major shifts in the depth charts this week. Danny Anthrop is very likely done for the season and Frankie Williams, Purdue's top player in the secondary, suffered a concussion and is likely questionable this week. That deprives the Boilers of two of their best players heading into this game against Wisconsin. Here is how the official depth chart looks as of Tuesday:

QB: 1. Austin Appleby 2. Danny Etling

RB: 1. Akeem Hunt 2. Raheem Mostert OR Keyante Green

WR: 1. DeAngelo Yancey 2. Gregory Phillips

WR: 1. Dan Monteroso 2. Cameron Posey

WR: 1. Cameron Posey 2. Dan Monteroso

LT: 1. David Hedelin 2. Cameron Cermin

LG: 1. Jason King 2. Jason Tretter

C: 1. Robert Kugler 2. Cameron Cermin

RG: 1. Jordan Roos 2. Corey Clements

RT: 1. J.J. Prince 2. Cameron Cermin

TE: 1. Gabe Holmes 2. Justin Sinz

Defense

DT: 1. Jake Replogle 2. Ryan Watson

NG: 1. Ra'Zahn Howard 2. Ryan Watson

DE: 1. Ryan Russell 2. Evan Panfil

RE: 1. Jalani Phillips 2. Gelen Robinson

MLB: 1. Ja'Whaun Bentley 2. Garrett Hudson

WLB: 1. Danny Ezechukwu 2. Andy James Garcia

SLB: 1. Jimmy Herman 2. Andy James Garcia

CB: 1. Anthony Brown 2. Leroy Clark

SS: 1. Frankie Williams 2. Taylor Richards

FS: 1. Landon Feichter 2. Austin Logan

CB: 1. Leroy Clark 2. Antoine Lewis

Kickoffs: Paul Griggs

Punt Returner: Myles Norwood OR Landon Feichter

Notes:

  • At receiver, I think we're in flux. As of right now Monteroso is listed as a starter, but he had a ton of drops on Saturday. I think you'll see the coaches try to get Posey and Yancey more involved, but they have to be able to get some separation. I would not be surprised to see more Trae Hart and Gregory Phillips. We might even get some Shane Mikesky. Someone had to step up for the loss of Danny Anthrop, so this is an opportunity for a true freshman or an upperclassman like Mikesky.
  • Michael Rouse III is removed from the rotation this week at defensive tackle.
  • Leroy Clark is now officially listed as the starter at cornerback over 5th year senior Antoine Lewis.
  • For now, Williams is still listed as a starter at safety. That may change given his health status.
  • Myles Norwood, a redshirt freshman, is listed as the punt returner instead of Williams. He went out for the return on Saturday after Anthrop got hurt, but did not field a kick (it went over his head). Both he and Feichter have never returned a punt.
  • We should really give a tip of the hat to our offensive line coach, as he has put together a unit that is absolutely solid now in its rotations. Everyone is back next year too. David Hedelin did a great job on Randy Gregory last week.
  • I have no idea how in the hell Gabe Holmes is still listed as the starter at tight end. Does he have picture of coach Hazell in a compromising position? Did Dolapo Macarthy sleep with Hazell's daughter or something? These are the only valid explanations for Holmes continuing to play and Macarthy still sitting on the bench.
