Florida State has once again updated its depth chart, as it puts a comeback win over Ole Miss in the rearview mirror to prepare for a home opener against the Charleston Southern Buccaneers on Saturday afternoon.

The initial depth chart was a model of uncertainty, as it contained the word “OR” in 18 separate places. Depth at numerous positions has apparently solidified, though, as a little over a week later, there are only nine uses of “OR.”

The biggest addition is quarterback Sean Maguire, who was not listed last week and returns as the backup to Deondre Francois. Gone from the chart is defensive end Keith Bryant, who had to undergo season-ending foot surgery.

Other than that, the defensive depth looks exactly the same, which is curious, seeing that when linebacker Ro’Derrick Hoskins missed plays against Ole Miss, he was spelled by neither Delvin Purifoy nor Dontavious Jackson, his listed backups, but instead walk-on Nick Patti.

Offensively, receiver depth seems more clear. There is no longer an “OR” between Kermit Whitfield and Nyqwan Murray at the Y-WR spot, as the former is listed as the starter. And the Z-WR position, which was previously deemed a tie by four recievers, now lists them in the same order, but without any “ORs”: Bobo Wilson, followed by Ermon Lane, George Campbell, and Keith Gavin. Along the offensive line, Derrick Kelly, who got the start at left guard against the Rebels, is now listed there behind Kareem Are, as well as still being the backup to Rod Johnson at left tackle.

And specialists dropped all four prior “ORs”: Ricky Aguayo will remain the starting place-kicker, while Logan Tyler will handle punting and kickoffs, and Wilson will continue to return punts.

Here’s the most recent version of the Seminoles’ depth chart:
