No big surprises there. That’s what’s exciting to me, is being so good and young at the starting positions that you know who was going to be the starters after the last play of the Chickfila bowl. The only real wildcard is Anthony Allen, because he can float between Aback and Bback. I’d be willing to bet that TJ Barnes will be the starter at DT at some point, and JC Lanier will be playing in the rotation from the first game. But everything else is as it should be.

Thanks, DR; nice “Jerk” reference! Why 2 “A-Back” listings? I know that they are little used in the CPJ offense, but do we not even recruit nor list TEs anymore? Is Cedric Griffin or Brad Jefferson “The Gladiator”? THWG!

Thanks for the research. The biggest concern I have still boils down to kicking. Scott Blair handeling both duties again? I’m not sure if he’s a good kicker or a bad kicker, but he definitely did not impress me in handeling both positions last year. If Anerson, Elakman, and Crosby are on scholarship, one of them needs to take whichever spot Blair is weakest at. I was definitely not impressed with puntin last year, I personally think kicking field goals is technically easier than punting (putning requires more leg strength unless your talking about kicking 50+ field goals all the time), but kicking field goals is far more of a mental challenge. Blair has the experience so I would be inclined to give him the edge on the full time field goal job.

Nothing much new here…………it’s pretty much the same as the spring depth chart. Looking at it now, especially now that fall camp is approaching, a few issues pop up:

-TJ Barnes MUST earn enough trust from the coaching staff to play at least 30-40% of the defensive snaps at tackle. He’s one the guy we have that can, in theory, clog the middle of the run every time. With Peters and Anderson, we got two active, yet undersized guys that could get worn down at the end of games. I saw that happen too many times under Tenuta-led D-lines.
-It should be interesting to see if Dieke can get a spot in the DE rotation if he’s listed second team here. If his recruiting profile is even near accurate, he’ll need to add some serious weight before hitting the field.
-The only two freshman I can see probably getting on the field this year other than Dieke are Stephen Hill and JC Lanier. Both of them should to be redshirted, especially Lanier. Lanier has the size, but I doubt he’ll have the stamina that Coach Johnson is looking for at this point. However, if they can play themselves into the two deep, they should see the field.
-O-line health is gonna be critical this year…….our starting line has enough issues as it is. They have got to pick up their assignments and pass protection if we have any hope of reaching double digit wins this year. They play up to their talent, and we’ll be ACC-title caliber, hands down. If they play like last year, it’ll be like playing russian roulette…..mabye we’ll be good, maybe we’ll get stomped.

I agree that JC Lanier will play a lot of football.
And you can look for other incoming Frosh to play a lot of ball. Johnson is still not at the point where he can redshirt all incoming players.

Likes: depth at running back, secondary, and linebacker, Tarrant getting some special teams action, and Taylor or Barnes at Wolf

Dislikes: QB depth (please stay healthy Nesbitt), the lack of size and experience on Dline, and kicking

Dieke is actually getting close to MJ’s weight. He’s up to about 255 or so.
I’m doing a story about him and the other freshmen that’ll come out around the start of practice.
Covington, there are no TEs in CPJ’s offense.

Hey “Bulldawg”
UGAy couldn’t win with 2 first round picks last year. What makes you think you are going to win with a 5th year back-up and a collections of RB’s that won’t step-up?
45-42 is as close as you leg humpers are going to get for a while.

Glad you douchebags can join us EVERYDAY here on the GEORGIA TECH YELLOW JACKETS BLOG. Better than visiting your own team’s lame blog huh? I don’t blame ya! Anyways, I guess JB your point is our players don’t have good character by your sarcastic remark. Didn’t UGA set some sort of offseason arrest count record last year? Call me crazy but I wouldn’t call UGA as being the most character driven school with “outstanding citizens”. Don’t get me wrong. Tech has had it’s fair share of problematic players (ie. rueben houston and others…) but not nearly the number of UGA’s. My favorite was the Georgia player who got drunk last year and vandalized the Hosptial. Haha..gotta love that outstanding citizen! Either way…I know your team can do no wrong in your eyes but calm down a bit with the high and mighty b.s. And maybe try to go over to the UGA blog and check out what’s going on during your teams offseason. Don’t you care to know about you own team? You d’bags seems to spend entirely too much time reading about and commenting on what Tech is up to….

That is all….

Thanks for all your hard work.

Loving the depth chart conversation starter. I really wish TJ Barnes would start but I guess he needs more stamina conditioning. Either way looks like a good team. Do you think Tarrant ever has a chance to start at some point this year. I’ve heard he’s got tons of talent and speed. Also, how do you feel about all the UGA idiots who invade this blog daily? Does it get on your nerves as much as it does ours?

Buffoons? Lowly football players? HA!! Good one!!!!

What does that make a team that lost to those lowly buffoons at home after leading 28-12 at halftime?

“I know my dawgs would never even look at a bunch like this on their field.”

That explains a lot. Maybe if they keep their eyes open next year they will be able to tackle and hold Tech to less than 410 yards on the ground!

“I know my dawgs would never even look at a bunch like this on their field.”

I believe they DID see a bunch like this ALL OVER their field…running to and fro scoring points, breaking tackles, preventing hurdlers, etc. Actually, I hear you’re gonna come see them do it again on OUR field this time!

Sorry, I try not to get into it, but that comment was arrogant and WAY off base. *deep breath* Whatever, time to go kick my UGA-grad employee now…

I really like the depth at the linebacker position, and to have Tarrant backing up is very impressive. But in response to whoever said something about Dieke: Doug briefly touched on it, but the dude is huge. He came to one of our parties in the last week or two, and he’s a giant, big too. BJ Machen is a guy to watch out for at linebacker. In my opinion, this year, the sky is the limit.

Here’s just ONE example of a new device helping our boys abroad paste more terrorists. http://www.gatech.edu/newsroom/release.html?id=3094

There was one kid – hardly even a student – and you gotta say something so base and unpatriotic? People like you get their due justice only when they’re brave enough to say something like that IN PERSON. Spouting filth like that, you’re no fan of great American college football…you’re a spineless skidmark that no team wants in their stadium.

how funny is that the very first comment is not even related to this GT depth chart but a shot at UGA. you fans have your priorities all messed up. you can’t even talk about your own team without talking trash about a 3 pt win last year. we know, we know, you’re the 2nd CFB team always mentioned in this great state. when will the jealousy and the envy cease? seriously? and before you get your panties in a wad, i understand there will always be smack talk but for crying out loud, you guys pride yourselves on “academic supremeness” come up with something original.

Ed-Covington, where the heck have you been? Did you just wake from a coma or something? You obviously haven’t been following GT lately. Like Doug said, there are no TE’s in this offense but there are two A-backs on the field, thus the two listings. And A-backs are used quite often. Just ask the Doggy fans about how much GT uses the A-back (Roddy Jones).

Good job Doug and I appreciate it. One question I have is Lucas Cox not going to get some snaps at B-back this year? He certainly doesn’t have Dwyers breakaway speed ( not many do though) but I thought he did a really good job on the limited carries he got. Is this just a case of all of the A and B backs will be interchangeable?

yeah yeah yeah i’m a dog fan on a TECH blog, but in an effort to say something productive, I can’t WAIT til November. I’m HAPPY Tech fans are fired up, this rivalry needs it. I hope both teams are undefeated when they play. It will be interesting to see how UGA can adapt to the option and if they can play together as a defense to stop it. On the other hand, I am looking forward to seeing how Techs D-line looks after losing some great talent.

Mr Whiskey Clear, I will meet you anywhere, anytime you would like. FYI, I actually went to GT. Albeit, transferred out for fear of killing some piece of crap sissy like you (and not because I couldn’t handle the workload I assure you). You are just like all other Tech fans. You have such an inferiority complex because UGA has kicked your a$$ so much, that you can’t have any kind of intelligent conversation about football (or anything for that matter other than Star Trek). By the way, it was a freaking joke…lighten up, loser. The stars will be realigned again come November, mark it.
