The Bootleg's Special Partner Dave Fowkes had a chance to catch up with fifth-year senior offensive lineman Derek Hall, who is a strong candidate to fill the critical role at right tackle as the Cardinal puts together its remaining puzzle pieces for 2010. There are still a few more practices before the starting line-up gets solidified so this will be one of the key competitions to track!

In Stanford's bread-and-butter play, power, it's a guard who has arguably the toughest assignment: pull around the center, beat the defender to the point of attack, block him out of the way and make the play work.

The Stanford cornerback corps has been nursing injuries this fall camp, which is cause for more than a little concern with the season opener less than three weeks away. Sunshine defeated those dark clouds late Saturday, however, with the surprise return of redshirt junior Wopamo Osaisai to the field. That fact alone is cause for excitement, but there are more layers to Osaisai's 2007 story.

There will always be gaps between our expectations, no matter how well informed our scouting and intel may be, on Signing Day and the realities for freshmen when they put on pads in their first preseason camp. Friday's practice helped demonstrated that the surprise strength of Stanford's 2007 freshmen are the linebackers. Confirmation came in talking with LBs coach Andy Buh afterward.

With Stanford's 15 spring practices now in the rearview mirror, we finally have the first official depth chart of 2007. We start by taking you through the offense, which is listed two-deep at every position and three-deep at one spot that might surprise you. Also included is commentary and analysis on all the positions and personnel, including a few key players not listed you need to know.
