Quick observations from Auburn practice #11: Have a peek at the unofficial depth chart


AUBURN, Ala. — Still three days before A-Day, but a two-deep is coming into focus. Here’s what we saw in this morning’s pace drills, and other than the yet-to-be-explained absence of safety Demetruce McNeal (and the notorious rotation of the quarterbacks/tailbacks), the first unit seems to be close to set in place.

First-team defense

DE Dee Ford, DT Jeffrey Whitaker, DT Gabe Wright, DE Kenneth Carter, LB Kris Frost, LB Cassanova McKinzy, star Justin Garrett, CB Jonathon Mincy, SS Jermaine Whitehead, FS Trent Fisher, CB Chris Davis.

Second-team defense

DE Craig Sanders, DT JaBrian Niles, DT Ben Bradley, DE Justin Delaine, LB Anthony Swain, LB LaDarius Owens, star Adam Dyas (walk-on), CB Ryan White, CB Josh Holsey, SS Ryan Smith, FS T.J. Davis.

  3. Frazier at #1 QB? Guess Gus and Rhett didn’t see game film from last year. Honestly, what does Kiehl know about them that we don’t?

  4. Have to agree with RJ. Seems like Malzahn and Lashlee are going to force us to “eat Arkansas pie”. The kid was brainless and heard footsteps last year. Looks like more of the same. Yes I do support Wallace!!!!!!!

  5. For RJ and Ralph, game film from last year is from…last year. Who cares? Gus and Lashlee are no doubt going by what they see in practice. And you know, there is nothing the least bit official or final about this “depth chart” anyway. Plus the fact is that with the incoming QB’s (Johnson and Marshall) and Lashlee already on record as saying it’s unlikely there will be a starter for the fall named coming out of spring practice, what we see now or on A-day is as meaningful as…nothing.

  6. @RJ and Ralph…..Frazier has played in Malzahn offense since like 7th grade and was picked by him to succeed Cam…trust me esp with Nick Marshall coming in, everything will be just fine
