The depth chart has been released for the Wyoming Cowboys’ opener Saturday against Montana. Only two guys at each position were listed (one for long snapper and holder).
Below is the depth chart, and in bold is what I predicted. Let me know what you think, and Monday we will go back and take a look on how right or wrong I was.
20 Blair Burns (5-10, 186, Sr., Plano, Texas)
29 Tim Hayes (5-9, 188, So., Los Angeles, Calif.); I predicted it would be Tyran Finley (5-9, 177, RJr., Birmingham, Ala.)
13 Darrenn White (6-0, 192, Sr., Kansas City, Mo.)
18 Xavier Lewis (6-0, 195, So., Aurora, Colo.)
5 Jesse Sampson (6-0, 200, Sr., Canoga Park, Calif.)
23 Tim Kamana (5-11, 196, RFr., Honolulu, Hawai’i) I thought true freshman Chavez Pownell Jr. would be listed, but there were only two players listed.
4 DeAndre Jones (6-0, 186, Sr., Killeen, Texas)
14 Tyran Finley (5-9, 177, RJr., Birmingham, Ala.) — I had Finley behind Burns and true freshman Robert Priester in this spot.
Strong-Side (SAM) Linebackers
21 Mark Nzeocha (6-3, 239, Sr., Neusitz, Germany)
3 Jeff Lark (6-2, 213, Jr., Cedar Hill, Texas)
Middle (MIKE) Linebackers
1 Jordan Stanton (6-0, 246, Sr., Palmdale, Calif.)
53 Alex Borgs (6-2, 229, Sr., Raesfeld, Germany)
Weak-Side (WILL) Linebackers
43 Devyn Harris (6-3, 234, Sr., Fountain, Colo.) — Wacha missed about a week with a concussion in camp, and Harris had a good camp. Wacha will play, but Harris is the starter.
45 Lucas Wacha (6-1, 214, So., Texarkana, Texas)
