It’s depth chart time, and this is always more fun to look at after a win. Purdue came out of the Maryland game relatively healthy, and more guys are getting closer to coming back.

Offense

QB

  1. Jack Plummer - Fr. (RS) or
  2. Aidan O’Connell - So.

RB

  1. King Doerue - Fr.
  2. Zander Horvath - So. or Da’Joun Hewitt - Fr. or Tario Fuller - Sr.

WR

  1. David Bell - Fr.
  2. Jordan Bonner - Fr. (RS)

LT

  1. Grant Hermanns - Jr.
  2. Cam Craig - Fr.

LG

  1. Mark Stickford - So.
  2. Alex Criddle - Jr.

C

  1. Sam Garvin - So.
  2. Will Bramel - Fr. (RS)

RG

  1. Matt McCann - Sr. (5) OR Jimmy McKenna - Fr. (RS)
  2. Marc Roland - So.

RT

  1. Eric Miller - Fr. (RS) OR
  2. Will Bramel - Fr. (RS)

TE

  1. Brycen Hopkins - Sr. (5)
  2. Payne Durham - Fr. (RS)

WR

  1. Jackson Anthrop - Jr.

WR

  1. Amad Anderson - Fr. (RS)
  2. Milton Wright - Fr.

We see the first appearance of Tario Fuller on the depth chart this year, and Milton Wright moves in behind Anderson after he had his first career TD catch on Saturday. It seems troubling seems that Viktor Beach is off the list entirely right now. Beach is confirmed out this week and Sam Garvin, a transfer from IU, did a good job in his stead.

Also, on Rondale Moore:

That could be okay, as Iowa did the best job of containing Rondale last year (6 catches for 31 yards).

Defense

DE

  1. Derrick Barnes - Jr.
  2. Kai Higgins - Sr.

DT

  1. Kai Higgins -Sr.
  2. Jack Sullivan - Fr. (RS)

DT

  1. Lawrence Johnson - Fr. (RS)
  2. Giovanni Reviere - So. or Jeff Marks - So.

DE

  1. George Karlaftis - Fr.
  2. Semisi Fakasiieki - Jr.

LB

  1. Jaylan Alexander - So.
  2. Khali Saunders - Fr.

LB

  1. Ben Holt - GS
  2. Derrick Barnes - Jr.

OLB/NB

  1. Jalen Graham - Fr.

CB

  1. Corey Trice - Fr. (RS)
  2. Kenneth Major - So.

FS

  1. Navon Mosley - Sr.
  2. Cam Allen - Fr.

SS

  1. Brennan Thieneman - Jr.
  2. Simeon Smiley - Jr.

CB

  1. Dedrick Mackey - So.
  2. Kenneth Major - So.

Here we have a major shift with Graham playing a hybrid LB/DB role and Cornel Jones missing completely. On that:

Khali Suanders got his first career action against Maryland and did relatively well. Jeff Marks also played for the first time this season and did well.

Special Teams

K

  1. J.D. Dellinger - Jr.
  2. Chris van Eekeren - Fr.

P

  1. Brooks Cormier - Fr.
  2. Zac Collins - So.

LS

  1. Nick Zecchino - Jr.
  2. Brooks Royal - So.

Holder

  1. Danny Carollo - Jr.
  2. Zac Collins - So.

Kickoff Returns

  1. Jackson Anthrop - Jr.
  2. Zander Horvath - So.

Punt Returns

  1. Jackson Anthrop - Jr.

Collins handled most of the punting duties and was quite successful with his rugby-style kick. Cormier has already missed his redshirt chance, so it looks like the punting will be situational.
