The Boise St. Broncos released their pre-fall camp depth chart and the consensus after spring football, as well as by the preview magazines, that Joe Southwick was to replace the legendary Kellen Moore. Well, at least according to head coach Chris Petersen the quarterback position is still up for grabs.
Odds are that Southwick will be named the starter once the first depth chart in fall camp is released. Petersen is just doing this to keep the players competing.
The defensive line has some questions with three of the four positions have the dreaded "or" listed. So, there will be some competition there. Also, with Boise State losing so many starters, but not experience, there should be changes to this depth chart after the first week.
This is a pre-fall depth chart, so take it for what it is worth at this point.
