Offensive Depth Chart For Opening Practice

It’s been 15 weeks since everyone was on a field and in uniform. Monday, the gang got back together. If they aren’t wearing full gear just yet, just running around the practice field was enough to get Bulldog blood boiling again.

Even better was watching Coach Dan Mullen’s men line-up for a quick set of two-minute offense. No, no defense opposed them. Still this was one way to get a quick read on where everyone stands on that side of the football as Mississippi State opens preseason.

We will work on a defensive depth chart at Wednesday’s practice.

Also, in a most encouraging sign of team condition, the rehab pit was entirely empty to begin camp. Safety Kendrick Market in fact lined up with the first safety rotation in his unit’s drills, alongside Kivon Coman. But word was Market will be moderately restricted these early days of practice so as not to rush his comeback from the November injury and surgery.

Cornerback Taveze Calhoun was closer to full-speed in those drills after skipping most of spring too. And linebacker Dezmond Harris was going through the first few rounds of work as well, though he is not expected to be full-speed for a little longer.

Mullen was to speak with media around 7:50 in the evening, along with selected players.
