Pitt Vs. Iowa: Breaking Down This Week's Two-Deep

New, 6 comments

Another game, another set of game notes released by the athletic department. In anticipation of the Panthers' first visit to Iowa in 60 years, here's the depth chart.

For comparison, here's the past depth charts:

Buffalo

Maine

QB: Tino Sunseri, Trey Anderson OR Mark Myers

Reaction: No change from last week. It was good to see Anderson get some snaps in last week. I expect that should Sunseri struggle, Anderson will get some snaps in.

RB: Ray Graham, Zach Brown, Corey Davis OR Malcolm Crockett

Reaction: No change from last week.

Fullback: Mark Giubilato, Khaynin Mosley-Smith

Reaction: No change from last week

H-back: Hubie Graham, Drew Carswell

Reaction: No change from last week. Good to see Graham get a bigger role in the offense last week. Look for him to have a similar role this week.

X-Receiver: Devin Street, Ed Tinker

Y-Receiver: Mike Shanahan, Salath Williams

Z-Receiver: Cameron Saddler, Ronald Jones

Reaction: No change from last week. I've been disappointed with Saddler's play the past two games. Jones on the other hand has been a surprise in special teams and saw some time on the offense last week. 

LT: Juantez Hollins, Justin Virbitsky

LG: Chris Jacobson, Matt Rotheram

C: Ryan Turnley, Chris Jacobson

RG: Lucas Nix, Cory King

RT: Jordan Gibbs, Greg Gaskins

Reaction: No change from last week. The line is a mess, but unfortunately there isn't a whole lot of options for mixing things up. Turnley continues to be a pleasant surprise, being consistent with his snaps.

Defensive End: Brandon Lindsey, Justin Hargrove

Reaction: The biggest change in the depth chart this week. Lindsey started at end last week and the coaches liked how his insertion in the line worked, as the defense held the Maine offense to -2 yards in the 1st quarter and didn't let them get a first down until the 2nd quarter.

Defensive Tackle: Chas Alecxih, Tyrone Ezell

Reaction: No change from last week. Good to see Ezell get a few snaps in last week.

Nose Tackle: Myles Caragein, Aaron Donald, Khaynin Mosley-Smith

Reaction: A slight change from last week as Donald has moved over from end to nose tackle due to Lindsey's move. Caragein had an off game last week, only recording one tackle.

Panther linebacker: Juan Price, LaQuentin Smith, Joe Trebitz

Reaction: Another change to the starting lineup. Price got his first collegiate start last week and Smith also saw some playing time. Price had a decent game, recording three tackles including one for loss.

Spur linebacker: Greg Williams, Todd Thomas, Carl Fleming

Reaction: No change from last week.

SAM linebacker: Shane Gordon, Tristan Roberts

Reaction: No change from last week.

WILL linebacker: Max Gruder, Tristan Roberts

Reaction: No change from last week.

Cornerback: K'Waun Williams AND Antwuan Reed, Buddy Jackson, Saheed Imoru, Lloyd Carrington

Reaction: No change from last week.

Bandit Safety: Jason Hendricks, Lafayette Pitts, Brandon Ifill

Reaction: No change from last week. Still waiting for Pitts to see the field.

Free Safety: Jarred Holley, Andrew Taglianetty, Brandon Ifill

Reaction: No change from last week.

Special Teams: Kevin Harper (PK), Matt Yoklic (P + holder), Kevin Barthelemy (LS), Buddy Jackson OR Corey Davis (KOR), Ronald Jones (PR)

Reaction: No change from last week. Harper needs to work on his field goals.
