Over at Dawgs247, Jake Rowe takes a stab at projecting an offensive depth chart, based on practice observations and (I presume) background chatter. I’m not going to say there are a huge number of surprises there, but my advanced degree in internet tea leaf reading leads me to a couple of observations.
One, Demetris Robertson, despite the positive words we’ve heard about him from Smart this spring, hasn’t climbed to a number one spot in the rotation at either slot or flanker. Whether that’s due to not yet having a complete mastery of the playbook or (more likely) not being a robust enough blocker, I can’t say. I’m sure it’s a fluid situation, though, and as his work ethic continues to garner praise, it’s certainly not unlikely this could change.
Two, I continue to marvel at the concept of Clay Webb, runt of the offensive line litter. How many programs have the luxury of bringing a talent like his along at their leisure?
