Missouri at Purdue: Depth Charts!

This week saw some moves.

NCAA Football: Eastern Michigan at Purdue Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

When you lose at home to a MAC school changes are needed. Things have not been working for Purdue and it has meant two losses by 5 total points. We also gave up 300 yards passing in the rain to a non-passing team and will now be facing a great passing offense. That means depth chart changes.


QB: Elijah Sindelar OR David Blough

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

WR: Jared Sparks OR Terry Wright

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

WR: Isaac Zico OR Jarrett Burgess

LT: 1. Grant Hermanns 2. Michael Mendez

LG: 1. Dennis Edwards 2. Shane Evans

C: 1. Kirk Barron 2. Viktor Beach

RG: 1. Matt McCann 2. Bearooz Yacoobi

RT: 1. Eric Swingler 2. Ethan Smart

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

The overall depth chart is the same as last week. Moore has played a lot more than Anthrop in the slot and Moore and Sparks have combined for 21 of Purdue’s 44 receptions. Knox and Jones were excellent against EMU, but Jones had two fumbles (one lost).

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

LB: 1. Markus Bailey 2. Tobias Larry

LB: Cornel Jones OR Derrick Barnes

LB: 1. Derrick Barnes 2. Jaylan Alexander

CB: 1. Antonio Blackmon OR Kenneth Major 2. Kamal Hardy

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

SS: 1. Jacob Thieneman 2. Brennan Thieneman

CB: Tim Cason OR Dedrick Mackey

This is your first major change of the year, as Borhm has added Elijah Ball and Cory Trice. The secondary had a bad game last week with Cason getting burned on a long TD and the infamous 4th and 15 that could have sealed the game. Ball and Trice are true freshmen, but something needs to be done. Major and Mackey have played a fair amount at corner and Mackey had a critical pass interference after the 4th and 15. The secondary absolutely will be tested this week.


Punter: 1. Joe Schopper 2. Jake Herr

Kicker: Spencer Evans OR 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. Jackson Anthrop 2. Rondale Moore

Anthrop had a fumble he recovered and More handled the rest of the punts the rest of the game on Saturday. Evans’ missed extra point was extremely costly, but he made a longer extra point after a penalty. He also missed a field goal, but is 4 of 6 on the year with a long of 38. Dellinger has maintained his redshirt so far and can play in 4 of the last 10 games.
