Depth chart looks alright.
A couple of interesting notes, some that have already been noticed:
No real surprises on the O-Line, stacked with mostly Non-Imports.
QBs not listed yet, must be keeping this a surprise. We all know which 3 will be listed, but the order is still uncertain. I think Porter will start.
What appears to be an improved group of receivers, but still unproven. All starters are imports. All non-starters listed as slots, but that doesn't mean much. I think James played well enough to start and may still see some time on the field. If Davis goes off-side again, I expect he will be sitting. Interesting to see Bauman is way down the list. This may or may not mean anything other than he is not starting.
No surprises for the RBs.
John Williams at FB without any training camp. Seems sort of weird, but he may not see much action, and I guess he is better than the others Canadians we have.
D-Line also has few surprises. It appears that only one Canadian will be on the line. We need Long, Hickman, and McIntyre to come up big.
A little surprised to see Gordan starting on the corner. I thought Smith and Bradley would start. At least we have a backup if one of these guys doesn't play well.
Interesting to see Haley start at MLB. He is the quarterback of the defense and has no CFL experience. No Canadians listed as starters. Seven guys listed, so plenty of room to switch out anyone who is not performing well.
DBs (half backs) look good.
A little surprise to have Beveridge start over Barker at Safety. I like the fact that this does give us some more experience in the middle of the field.
I had heard that Tre Smith would be returning punts and kicks. It appears that no one made a good impression in the pre-season. I hope Tre can return to form from last year when he was healthy. He would always catch the ball and make good gains by going up the field.
One general thing to note about the depth chart that I think is good. We have positioned ourselves with Canadians in more traditional roles and in most cases with back ups. This should help in the long run with keeping the import numbers on the field under control.
