Headed into the final game of the season we have our last look at the depth chart, which probably does not tell much. Hopefully a few more players are healthy this week, because we will need them.

Offense

WR 7 DeAngelo Yancey, Sr., 6-2, 205, Atlanta, Ga.

21 Anthony Mahoungou, Jr., 6-3, 210, Paris, France

WR 18 Cameron Posey, 5th, 6-1, 192, Boca Raton, Fla.

10 Gregory Phillips, Jr., 6-0, 201, Lithonia, Ga.

LT 66 Cameron Cermin, 5th, 6-5, 323, College Station, Texas

75 Jalen Neal, Jr., 6-8, 315, Tempe, Ariz.

LG 72 Jason King, 5th, 6-4, 310, Little Rock, Ark.

68 Peyton Truitt, R-Fr., 6-5, 296, West Lafayette, Ind.

C 53 Kirk Barron, So., 6-2, 300, Mishawaka, Ind.

68 Peyton Truitt, R-Fr., 6-5, 296, West Lafayette, Ind.

RG 70 Jordan Roos, 5th, 6-4, 301, Celina, Texas

50 Bearooz Yacoobi, So., 6-5, 293, Dearborn, Mich.

RT 79 Matt McCann, R-Fr., 6-6, 314, Fishers, Ind.

75 Jalen Neal, Jr., 6-8, 315, Tempe, Ariz.

TE 88 Cole Herdman, So., 6-4, 251, Leesburg, Va.

89 Brycen Hopkins, R-Fr., 6-5, 239, Nashville, Tenn.

WR 3 Bilal Marshall, 5th, 6-2, 201, Miami, Fla.

13 Terrance Landers, Fr., 6-4, 200, Dayton, Ohio

QB 11 David Blough, So., 6-1, 200, Carrollton, Texas

2 Elijah Sindelar, R-Fr., 6-4, 236, Princeton, Ky.

RB 8 Markell Jones, So., 5-11, 210, Columbus, Ind.

37 Brian Lankford-Johnson, Fr., 6-0, 195, St. Paul, Minn.

or 22 Jack Wegher, Fr., 5-9, 205, Sioux City, S.D.

No official changes this week, but will we finally see Richie Worship some more? The Jones-Lankford-Johnson-Worship trio has shown some serious promise, but all three have been playing hurt and the line in front of them has struggled. Maybe this is the week we finally get a ground game going again.

Some fun stat notes:

· Blough is now 7th in career completions with 440, 8th in passing attempts with 765, 10th in yards with 4,701, and 8th in touchdown passes with 33. He is starting to close in on some serious career marks with two years left. He has 3,127 yards on the season, which is the 10th best in Purdue history. A modest 230 yard day gets him as high as 7th.

· DeAngelo Yancey can finish pretty high on the career list in several categories as a receiver. He needs 127 yards for a 1,000 yard season, just the 13th in school history. That would be enough to move him to 5th on the career yardage list, as he has 2,266 yards, trailing Vinny Sutherland by 104 yards. He is currently 8th behind Sutherland, Greg Orton, and Dave Young, but all are within striking distance. A 100 yard game would be his 19th, making him only the fourth Boilermaker receiver with double-digit 100 yard games. He is also 7th in school history with 19 touchdowns and 18th in receptions with 135, but can move much higher. An 11 catch day could move him as high as 13th.

Defense

DE 45 Austin Larkin, Jr., 6-3, 259, University City, Mo.

95 Evan Panfil, Sr., 6-5, 270, New Lenox, Ill.

DT 54 Jake Replogle, Sr., 6-5, 275, Centerville, Ohio

59 Langston Newton, Sr., 6-3, 278, Indianapolis, Ind.

DT 95 Evan Panfil, Sr., 6-5, 270, New Lenox, Ill.

66 Alex Criddle, Fr., 6-4, 309, Broken Arrow, Okla.

DE 13 Gelen Robinson, Jr., 6-1, 275, Schererville, Ind.

45 Austin Larkin, Jr., 6-3, 259, University City, Mo.

Will 21 Markus Bailey, R-Fr., 6-1, 235, Columbus, Ohio

42 Andy James Garcia, 5th, 6-0, 223, Miami, Fla.

Mike 4 Ja’Whaun Bentley, Jr., 6-2, 250, Glenarden, Md.

16 Garrett Hudson, Jr., 6-2, 245, Tallahassee, Fla.

Buck 36 Danny Ezechukwu, Jr., 6-2, 240, Lithonia, Ga.

29 Jimmy Herman, 5th, 6-4, 240, Carmel, Ind.

LCB 2 Da’Wan Hunte, Jr., 5-9, 188, Miami, Fla.

23 Josh Hayes, Fr., 6-0, 181, Indianapolis, Ind.

SS 3 Leroy Clark, Sr., 5-10, 197, Miami, Fla.

26 C.J. Parker, Jr., 6-2, 205, Menifee, Calif.

FS 26 C.J. Parker, Jr., 6-2, 205, Menifee, Calif.

27 Navon Mosley, Fr., 6-0, 181, Bloomfield, Mich.

RCB 6 Myles Norwood, Jr., 6-0, 174, Arlington, Texas

24 Tim Cason, So., 5-11, 195, Clarkston, Mich.

A few shifts defensively, here. Eddy Wilson looks to be out, meaning Evan Panfil shifts inside and Larkin and Robinson are on the outside. That also means virtually no depth at all behind Newton and Criddle. This needs to be addressed in the offseason as priority one, especially with Replogle and Panfil gone as Purdue’s two best defensive linemen.

C.J. Parker moves ahead of Mosley at free safety, but both will likely start next season. Bentley continues to be listed as the starter, but has missed the last two weeks.

No change for the specialists. I do want to point out that after a rough start, Dellinger has now made 7 of his last 8 field goals. He missed 3 of his first 5.
