Typically, depth charts tend to solidify as seasons wear on. Also typical: Florida State beating Syracuse; so here we are. The Seminoles released their depth chart for Saturday’s home outing against Northern Illinois today, and it includes a number of changes, starting, to no one’s surprise, up front with the offensive line— specifically at the tackle positions. On the left side, Jauan Williams had been listed as the clear-cut starter, but he’s now included with an OR regarding Abdul Bello. On the right side, starter Derrick Kelly is gone, and Bello OR Brady Scott are the possible options.
The indecision continues at the receiver spots, where changes have been made at all three positions. Keith Gavin and Warren Thompson had been the lone depth at one spot, but George Campbell has returned to the depth chart, now ahead of Thompson. At another position, D.J. Matthews had moved ahead of Nyqwan Murray, but Murray has been elevated back to the top line, with Matthews getting the infamous OR. At the final WR spot, Tamorrion Terry still tops the list, but while Ontaria Wilson had been ahead of Tre’Shaun Harrison, the two now have an OR between their names.
Only one change occurred on the defensive side of the ball, and it’s one that I predicted after the Virginia Tech game: Janarius Robinson has taken over the top position as a defensive end, opposite Brian Burns. He jumps former starter Walvenski Aime. No changes have been made to the special teams depth.
