With two weeks of training camp in the books, the Pitt football team only has one more week before it has to start preparing for the season opener on September 3rd vs. Villanova. Pat Narduzzi and his staff have to slowly start changing their mindset from camp evaluation to working on a specific game plan.
At the start of camp, some of the questions were: who would start at running back, who’d take Tyler Boyd’s spot, would Damar Hamlin earn a starting spot, would any of the young linebackers earn playing time? Most of these pre-camp questions have been answered.
As we stand 12 days away from the opener, here’s my take on where things stand with the Pitt depth chart.
LT- Adam Bisnowaty
LG- Dorian Johnson
C- Alex Bookser
RT- Brian O’Neil
WR- Dontez Ford, Tre Tipton, Aaron Mathews
WR- Quadree Henderson, Jester Weah, Rafael Araujo-Lopes
RB- James Conner, Chawntez Moss/Darrin Hall, Qadree Ollison, Rachib Ibrahim
QB- Nate Peterman, Manny Stocker, Ben DiNucci, Thomas MacVittie (redshirt)
DE- Ejaun Price, James Folston
DT- Shakir Soto, Amir Watts, Rashad Wheeler
NT- Tyrique Jarrett, Keyshon Camp
DE- Dewayne Hendrix or Allen Edwards, Rori Blair
Star LB- Elijah Zeise, Seun Idowu or Anthony McKee
Mike LB- Matt Galambos, Quinton Wirginis
Money LB- Mike Caprera, Bam Bradley, Saleem Brightwell
CB- Avonte Maddox, Therran Coleman, Malik Henderson
SS- Jordan Whitehead, Dennis Briggs
FS- Reggie Mitchell or Terrish Webb, Bricen Garner
CB- Damar Hamlin, Ryan Lewis, Dane Jackson
This is not set in stone but that’s my guess as to how the Pitt depth chart currently stands with 12 days to the opener.
