Wisconsin at Purdue: Depth Charts

The loss of Jacob Thieneman is the biggest loss on the depth chart this week.

NCAA Football: Purdue at Minnesota Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

We have some pretty significant movement on the depth chart this week as Jeff Brohm yesterday announced that Jacob Thieneman would miss the final two regular season games with a shoulder injury. He missed the Minnesota game with this injury as well. He is the second regular starter Purdue has lost for the regular season. First, however, let’s look at the offense:


QB: 1. David Blough 2. Elijah Sindelar

RB: 1. D.J. Knox 2. Markell Jones. 3. Tario Fuller 4. Alexander Horvath

WR: Jared Sparks OR Terry Wright

WR: 1. Rondale Moore 2. Jackson Anthrop 3. Keyron Catlett

WR: Isaac Zico OR Jarrett Burgess

LT: 1. Eric Swingler 2. Michael Mendez

LG: 1. Shane Evans 2. Dennis Edwards

C: 1. Kirk Barron 2. Viktor Beach

RG: 1. Dennis Edwards 2. Bearooz Yacoobi

RT: 1. Matt McCann 2. Eric Swingler

TE: 1. Cole Herdman OR Brycen Hopkins 2. Darius Pittman

There are no official changes on the depth chart this week, as Swingler stays at left tackle. The Purdue offense clearly struggled without Hermanns, however. It was the worst day for a Brohm offense at Purdue, so something needs to be fixed this week.


DE: 1. Giovanni Reviere 2. Semisi Fakasiieiki

DT: 1. Lorenzo Neal 2. Ray Ellis OR Alex Criddle

DT: 1. Anthony Watts 2. Jeff Marks

DE: 1. Kai Higgins 2. Robert McWilliams III

LB: 1. Markus Bailey 2. Tobias Larry

LB: Cornel Jones OR Derrick Barnes

LB: 1. Derrick Barnes 2. Jaylan Alexander

CB: 1. Antonio Blackmon 2. Dedrick Mackey 3. Kamal Hardy

FS: 1. Navon Mosley 2. Simeon Smiley or Elijah Ball or Cory Trice

SS: 1. Brennan Thieneman 2. Simeon Smiley

CB: 1. Kenneth Major 2. Tim Cason

Jacob’s brother Brennan steps into the starter’s role and Smiley is now officially backing up both safety spots. Brennan had four tackles in his first career start while Smiley only had one. The bigger issue was the penalties, however, as we had a wealth of stupid penalties that cost us.

Punter: 1. Joe Schopper 2. Jake Herr

Kicker: 1. Spencer Evans 2. J.D. Dellinger

Kickoffs: 1. Spencer Evans 2. Myles Homan

Long Snapper: 1. Ben Makowski 2. Ryan Sadkowski

Holder: 1. Joe Schopper 2. Jake Herr

Kick Returns: 1. Rondale Moore 2. D.J. Knox

Punt Returns: 1. Rondale Moore 2. Jackson Anthrop

Once again, there are no Special Teams changes.
