Depth Chart Explanation

It’s important to reiterate that the depth chart provided to us weekly by the university is still only a very general, broad overview of the utilization priority of various players on the roster. For example, Octavius Evans has been listed highly on the depth chart all season and has seen less than 20, total snaps this year. This has been due to the unpredictable nature of the condition that has kept him off the field, but there are others listed at positions on the roster that might not directly translate to their positions on the field. For example, Kekaula Kaniho is listed as a strongside linebacker/nickel, but in reality he has lined up in those positions as well as safety. A lot of these players have very broad utility that can’t be crammed into one position when it comes time to make an official depth chart each week. So, keep that in mind as we review changes. On that note:

Notable Notes

With the announcement that David Moa’s regular season is done (he might make it back for a bowl game), Chase Hatada has migrated from the defensive end rotation and is now listed as the starter at defensive tackle. Chadd also had some interesting information regarding inquiries about Moa’s possibility for a medical redshirt year:

For what it’s worth, Moa seems to be taking a very positive approach to the setback:

In addition to the highly unfortunate loss of David Moa, the Broncos will also be without the services of DeAndre Pierce for the remainder of the season due to a lacerated spleen. In order to mitigate that loss, the Broncos have moved Tyreque Jones from backup boundary safety to starting free safety. Evan Tyler has moved from the backup boundary safety spot to move over and replace Tyreque’s role of providing relief for Kekoa Nawahine at free safety. In his own words, here is Pierce’s announcement on the end of his season:

Haden Hoggarth’s kicking issues have now seemingly spilled over into the depth chart and actual game time as he now has an ‘OR’ between him and Velazquez on the depth chart. Also, in the SDSU game, Velazquez had both extra point attempts.

Wide receivers John Hightower and Akilian Butler have supplanted running backs Robert Mahone and Alexander Mattison behind Avery Williams at kick returner.

Khalil Shakir has officially replaced CT Thomas as the backup punt returner behind Avery Williams, although Khalil has actually fielded the majority of punts since Avery’s arm injury in the first game.
