TCU released their most recent depth chart on Monday afternoon. Not many surprises are on the list, but there are some notable ones.
Among the notable names appearing as a starter is junior linebacker Jonathan Anderson. A former safety, Anderson has the athleticism to play linebacker at 6-foot-3, 230-pounds and 4.5 speed. TCU head coach Gary Patterson has mentioned he will utilize a linebacker by committee approach, but it speaks volumes that Anderson has at least earned the nod as the starter.
Perhaps the most notable position on the depth chart is at quarterback, where Trevone Boykin is listed first over Casey Pachall. Patterson has not named a starter for Saturday, but many believe Pachall will get the nod.
Last season TCU played 16 true freshmen and while there aren't nearly that many on the two-deep, the Frogs will have key contributors who are true freshmen. Offensively, Ty Slanina is listed as first-team receiver while Patrick Morris is second team center. Joseph Noteboom is listed on the second team and Cameron Echols-Luper is second team behind Brandon Carter.
In Devonte Fields' absence, junior Matt Anderson has been given the starting nod at right defensive end. However, Fields' is still listed at second team which has led to even more speculation that the All-American defensive end will see the field against the Tigers.
