Some quick thoughts

-- The depth chart is, for the most part, devoid of major surprises, it looks more or less like close observers of the team expected it to look

-- Interesting that Hakeem Allonce isn't listed among the defensive tackles. I get that he hasn't been on campus to participate in practice and the offseason conditioning program. But everything I have heard says that he will be on campus soon, and that he can be penciled into one of the defensive tackle spots.

-- Shaq over RDA4 for primary punt and kick return duties. Can't say that I disagree with that.

-- Chad West being in the two deep at left tackle is the only real surprise from this list. West has been in the program for a while, but he has yet to find a position bouncing between offensive line, defensive end and tight end a few times. UC plays a lot of offensive linemen, 8 at the least, occasionally 9 and 10 depending on the game and opponent. That would mean that West is going to get some live reps in relevant spots this year. Maybe he finally has found a home
