Bulldogs Begin Preseason With Tuesday Afternoon Session

Mississippi State opened preseason practicing Tuesday. No official depth chart has been published and will likely not be until game week. But on unofficial sideline observation this is how the Bulldogs lined up at the offensive and defensive positions to open drills. After today? Who knows?

Sitting out today's practice for rehab work was RB Dontavian Lee. He was joined early on by DE/V Will Redmond, and later by S Jamal Peters.

Note that 12 defensive positions are listed, which reflects the two types of 'vipers' being used. One is a defensive end sort of body, the other a big outside linebacker.
