There's still a couple of battles for starting positions going on within the Ole Miss football team, but as we enter game week, there are not a lot of questions remaining to be answered from a two-deep standpoint.
Who will be the number one center, between sophomore A.J. Hawkins and true freshman Evan Swindall, is still in the air, but it appears Hawkins is gaining an edge.
What's going to happen at quarterback with sophomore Nathan Stanley, senior Jeremiah Masoli and junior Randall Mackey is not in concrete yet due to the eligibility standing of Masoli not being determined yet.
A couple of injuries - namely to OLB Mike Marry and Safety Fon Ingram - have changed things at those positions.
Here's our current depth chart. '/' denotes a tie or no concrete decision at a position. At WR, we'll list a projected rotation rather than a two-deep for now. Injuries will also be shown and some positions will have a three or more deep.
