After two weeks of summer workouts, here is a look at the “depth chart” with the understanding that there is a lot of shuffling going on, injury absences, etc so take this for what is after two weeks.
Browne is the first man up with the 1’s and he is the vocal leader of the sessions but it’s been a fairly even distribution of the reps so far between him and Darnold. Fink is getting a decent amount of work too, especially now that Jalen Greene has returned to receiver.
Ronald Jones II
OR Dominic Davis
All four tailbacks are getting work, plus Peters is being sprinkled in there at fullback as well.
There has been no Daniel Imatorbhebhe in action so the top two are splitting things, and it’s clear there is an increased workload for the tight ends.
Wheeler only worked out for the first session and hasn’t gone since. When Chad is out, it is Banner taking over at LT.
After splitting time in spring, it has been mostly Brown going with the 1’s so far this summer, although Mama did get some work with the 1’s last Thursday.
We haven’t seen Toa Lobendahn or Khaliel Rodgers in action but they are in attendance, and Toa did get some work after the Thursday session to practice some “under center” snaps with Browne.
Talamaivao has been going exclusively with the first unit.
Banner is moving back and forth seamlessly between the right and left side. The first week saw Edoga on the defensive line but it looks like he will be on offense for the rest of summer.
No surprises here so far as Cameron Smith continues to watch from the sidelines with his knee rehab.
The big news came on the first day when Edoga lined up at DE, and looked pretty good doing it. Other than that, it’s the same line-up we saw in spring.
Don Hill returns after sitting out spring ball and he’s looked like a contributor to this point.
There has been no Adoree’ as he is still doing track, and Iman Marshall has been in attendance but hasn’t done any drills. That’s meant a lot of work for guys who are fighting for time behind the starters, and I particularly like what we’ve seen from Harris and Jones.
Hawkins returned after missing spring and has slipped right back into the starter role next to Tell, although there is a lot of mixing things around at this spot.
