Opening Day Spring Practice Depth Chart

When the 2015 Bulldogs got busy with Tuesday practices, they answered lots of winter speculation. Such as promotions to open spots, off-season changes in positions, spring time experiments, as well as injury status. The result: our first and entirely unofficial Spring Depth Chart!

This first-practice chart is notable for a few missing Mississippi State names, or at least names of Dogs sidelined for health or other internal team issues. A short and partial list of those not practicing Tuesday included QB Damian Williams and QB Elijah Staley (Coach Dan Mullen said the latter is 'out' for all spring); WR De'Runnya Wilson, S Kendrick Market, LB Dezmond Harris, and more.

More positive news on this front was the return to work of CB Cedric Jiles, WR Shelby Christy, and most interestingly OT Damien Robinson. His status is explained in better detail by Mullen in the posted transcript. Suffice to say, it is too early to have Robinson in the 2015 season plans.

This chart will be updated over the course of spring ball, not every day maybe but often enough. For now, compare this to the 2014 bowl camp chart. And enjoy!
