NOTES


1. Along the offensive line, Duke has moved Cody Robinson from the primary backup at left guard to the starting spot at right guard in an attempt to plug in some experience fourth loss of NFL First Round Draft Pick Laken Tomlinson.

2. After being the primary backup a season ago at left tackle, Gabe Brandner is now the starter with Sterling Korona emerging from the pack of young offensive linemen as the primary backup.

3. After being listed as the primary backup at right tackle a season ago, Tanner Stone has moved inside to the same role at right guard. Taking his place as the second string right tackle is redshirt freshman Christian Harris.

4. After spending a year redshirting, both high profile class of 2014 wide receiver commits have found their place on the two-deep with Chris Taylor being listed as a starter and Trevon Lee being listed as a primary backup.

5. Defensively, Duke has moved Deion Williams from linebacker to defensive end, where he’ll need to use his speed at just 6-foot, and 230 pounds.

6. On the interior, a pair of redshirt freshmen are poised to break into the rotation at tackle with Edgar Cerenord and Quaven Ferguson being listed as second string defensive tackles. Both players are listed at 300 pounds or bigger.

7. The loss of Kelby Brown means Duke will rely on new starter at MIKE LB, Zavier Carmichael and his primary backup, Tinashe Bere.

8. Duke has moved Dwayne Norman from safety to WILL LB and he takes over as the starter in front of third year sophomore Chris Holmes.
