Head coach Steve Sarkisian said it before spring practice started and several times throughout. Defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox said it a few times. Position coaches like Peter Sirmon and Jimmie Dougherty also mentioned it when discussing their mixing and matching during spring drills. So while all those coaches said there really was no depth chart, there were hints of one.

And besides, what else can we talk about?

So here’s my moderately educated guess on the depth chart coming out of spring practice. I have no inside knowledge other than attending 14 of the 15 spring practices. I’m not listing incoming freshman like Shaq Thompson and Shane Brostek or Korey Durkee because, well, they didn’t participate in spring. Obviously those players figure to be on there. I’m also taking into account injury factors and such as well. I wouldn’t expect Colin Tanigawa to be 100 percent ready for fall camp, but I do think Hau’oli Jamora will be. I’m also not listing specialists because we never really got a feel for that during practices and so much is in flux with those positions.

Feel free to correct me on any of my assumptions …

    I know you haven’t seen him practice at all yet but, what do you think the chances of Shaq Thompson starting at FS are come game 1?

    Some of those guys obviously need a little help in the shirt and tie department.
