LT 75 Corey Hilliard, 6-5, 300, So.
66 Corey Curtis, 6-4, 290, Jr.
LG 61 David Koenig, 6-4, 285, RS Fr.
74 Doug Bond, 6-2, 300, So.
C 69 Chris Akin, 6-2, 300, Sr.
72 Kurt Seifried, 6-4, 305, So.
RG 76 Sam Mayes, 6-3, 325, Sr.
63 David Washington, 6-4, 275, Fr.
RT 78 Kellen Davis, 6-5, 290, Jr.
69 Adam Gourley, 6-6, 290, Jr.
TE 86 Billy Bajema, 6-5, 265, Sr.
80 Charlie Johnson, 6-4, 270, Jr.
Analysis: No changes, but it is important to note that Doug Bond played the entire game for David Koenig at left guard after Koenig had back problems act up just before the Iowa State game. Offensive line coach Chuck Moller said Bond played pretty well. Bond is the top option at either guard and Adam Gourley is the top option at either tackle. Colorado will be the most athletic and most physical defensive line the Cowboy o-line has faced.
WR 83 Chijuan Mack, 6-3, 185, RS Fr.
28 Tommy Devereaux, 6-1, 170, So.
WR 84 D'Juan Woods, 6-1, 195, So.
15 Kenny Williams, 6-4, 215, Jr.
FL 24 Luke Frazier, 6-0, 205, Jr.
11 Prentiss Elliott, 6-0, 175, Fr.
Analysis: No changes. It is anticpated that since he didn't play against Iowa State that they will try to redshirt Tommy Devereaux. There is still a need for playmakers to step up and help out D'Juan Woods, who had the best game of his career against Iowa State.
QB 8 Donovan Woods, 6-2, 215, RS Fr.
4 Al Pena, 6-3, 205, RS Fr.
18 Jamie Beeghley, 6-1, 200, So.
FB 37 Shawn Willis, 6-1, 260, Jr.
32 Julius Crosslin, 5-11, 235, RS Fr.
TB 33 Vernand Morency, 5-10, 215, Jr.
2 Seymore Shaw, 5-11, 215, Sr.
or 27 Greg Jones, 5-9, 205, Sr.
Analysis: The only change in the depth chart is that the "or" came off at backup quarterback. With Al Pena running the two-minute offense for the second game in a row it is safe to say he has moved ahead of Jamie Beeghley. Donovan Woods continues to progress. He is doing well on game management as a quarterback, but could step up his performance on running the ball. Coming off his best passing game he still needs to make strides there as well. For the Bobby Reid watchers, head coach Les Miles labled him at near 50 percent, and he will not play unless there were an emergency at quarterback against Colorado.
RE 50 Darnell Smith, 6-0, 260, So.
or 97 Marque Fountain, 6-1, 260, So.
DT 95 Efe Mowarin, 6-1, 310, Sr.
90 Xavier Lawson-Kennedy, 6-1, 310, So.
NG 96 Clay Coe, 6-2, 295, Sr.
77 Walter Thomas, 6-5, 340, Fr.
DE 58 Nathan Peterson, 6-2, 250, Fr.
or 81 Jerry Don Bray, 6-5, 265, Jr.
Analysis: During the off week defensive coordinator Bill Clay and defensive line coach Carey Bailey were looking for defensive ends that would take on blocks and preserve the corner. Darnell Smith and freshman Nathan Peterson won the jobs. Peterson may never give his back as he had seven tackles, four for losses, three sacks, a fumble caused, and generally wreaked havoc on the Cyclones offense. Peterson and Smith will continue to start. Brad Girtman sat in the stands last week as a violation of team rules. His ankle is fine, and Miles said Girtman would have a chance to win his role back in practice.
MLB 99 Lawrence Pinson, 6-1, 240, Jr.
51 Victor DeGrate, 6-3, 250, So.
OLB 12 Paul Duren, 6-1, 240, Jr.
41 Pagitte McGee 6-1, 235, Jr.
Analysis: Pinson had some big time hits in the Iowa State game and he is playing very well. Victor DeGrate, like Girtman, did not suit up for the Iowa State game, and he will have a chance to fight back for some playing time in practice.
LCB 9 Darrent Williams, 5-9, 180, Sr.
5 Ricky Coxeff, 5-11, 175, So.
SS 20 Vernon Grant, 5-9, 185, Jr.
30 Grant Jones, 5-10, 195, So.
FS 17 Jon Holland, 5-11, 185. Sr.
10 Thomas Wright, 6-0, 185, Jr.
WS 23 Jamie Thompson, 6-0, 190, Jr.
19 Jeremy Nethon, 5-9, 190, So.
RCB 6 Robert Jones, 5-11, 190, Sr.
4 Daniel McLemore, 5-7, 160, Jr.
Analysis: Miles won't confirm it, but Darrent Williams does have a broken right forearm. He will miss at least the next three games and Daniel McLemore slides in even though the depth chart doesn't reflect it. Williams is a big-time cover corner, but fortunately the secondary is very strong for the Cowboys and they will stay strong.
K 47 Jason Ricks, 6-1, 180, Fr.
28 Luke Roberts, 5-10, 175, RS Fr.
P 18 Cole Farden, 5-11, 200, Sr.
47 Jason Ricks, 6-1, 180, Fr.
DS 55 Jacob Dressen, 6-4, 275, Sr.
45 Brady Nix, 6-1, 225, RS Fr.
Holder 85 John Wohlgemuth, 6-1, 185, Sr.
PR 9 Darrent Williams, 5-9, 180, Sr.
or 11 Prentiss Eliott, 6-0, 175, Fr.
4 Daniel McLemore, 5-7, 160, Jr.
KR 6 Robert Jones, 5-11, 190, Sr.
and 4 Daniel McLemore, 5-7, 160, Jr.
Analysis: With Williams out, Elliott will get more work this week fielding punts. He is electric but they have to get him schooled on catching the punt.
