Boise State Projected Depth Chart

We take a shot at projecting the depth chart for the opener against Florida State

NCAA Football: Boise State at Wyoming Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

With spring ball behind us, there is plenty of uncertainty surrounding the Boise State football team. Who will start at quarterback? What is the new defense going to look like? Where does the STUD fit into this equation? I put together a projected depth chart, but there are a few things to keep in mind: linebackers are interchangeable, there is some uncertainty over where Khafari Buffalo will play, there is nobody listed at nickle and only one player listed at OLB. I did my best to put the puzzle together. The first player below each position is a projected starter, followed by backup, third string, etc.

There were a ton of positions that were difficult to predict. It is hard to project what Boise State has at linebacker, as much of the depth is unproven at this point. There is so much depth at wide receiver and the defensive line, that there will likely be a ton of rotating. What do you guys think? Who do you see climbing up the depth chart?
