Projected Fall Depth Chart

Feb. 10 -- We plug in the 2015 recruits and see what the potential depth chart for fall might look like...

Fall camp is a long ways away.

There is, first, spring practice in April, which will obviously sort out a good deal of the depth chart for the 2015 season. But since the incoming freshmen (at least most of them) won't be involved in spring practice, we thought it'd be more entertaining to leapfrog it and project a depth chart for fall that includes the incoming freshmen.

We've clearly taken some leaps of faith and some liberties in trying to foresee what the team might look like by then:

-- We've been asserting that Josh Rosen will win the starting quarterbacks job, so we slotted him in as the #1 QB for fall.

-- We think quarterback Aaron Sharp will make a move to receiver by fall.

-- While returning OL starter Scott Quessenberry would be slotted to start next season, we think with how much depth Offensive Line Coach Adrian Klemm now has he could redshirt Quessenberry, especially with him having off-season surgery.

-- We've moved OL Najee Toran to defensive line. That's based on some things we've heard and trying to project out how it could shake out.

-- Safety Ron Robinson will leave UCLA after this quarter and go to a JC, with the intention of getting his AA and then transferring to another FBS school.

-- You can see how UCLA could really use Roquan Smith at inside linebacker, with probably a very good shot to start in the role that Kenny Young had last year.
