A look at Ole Miss' preseason depth chart

Post by rebeljim » Mon Jul 13, 2015 3:58 pm

Buried within the pages of Ole Miss' 2015 media guide, which was released for the beginning of SEC Media Days, is its preseason depth chart.

Its significance is probably little, as players will still climb or fall as competition wages on this summer. But the way-too-early depth chart did feature a few interesting tidbits.

Not surprisingly, no starting quarterback was listed.

Ryan Buchanan, Chad Kelly and DeVante Kincade were all listed as "Or" at the position. Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said at the end of spring practice that he believed Buchanan had a "very slight" edge in the race.

The most interesting note was probably Jeremy Liggins only being listed as a backup tight end behind Evan Engram. The 6-foot-3, 300-pounder was moved to offensive tackle this spring after spending last season as a wildcat quarterback and tight end.

Liggins had a trial by fire of sorts during spring. He saw a handful of first team reps at left tackle as injuries left Ole Miss with just eight healthy offensive linemen at a point.

Ole Miss returns many of the pieces that led the nation in scoring defense last season, so naturally there weren't many changes or surprises on that side of the ball.

Tee Shepard, a former five-star prospect who redshirted last season after transferring from junior college, was listed as "OR" at one of the cornerback spots with Kendarius Webster.

Fadol Brown, Robert Nkemdiche, Issac Gross and Marquis Haynes made up the defensive line.
