Washington Huskies Projected Two-Deeps after Fall Camp


After 12 practices of fall camp, it’s time to hash out the various position groupings and get to who we think will be in Washington’s two-deeps against Auburn on September 1st.

You’ll notice there’s a lot of ‘or’s’ on the list. There’s two main reasons for that.

1) The Washington coaches don’t talk about depth charts. Depth charts are for the media. The coaches talk about ‘seating charts’, meaning fluidity in lineups and lot of depth playing – so you’ll see a lot of combinations of players, especially younger players, put into higher-leverage situations as a matter of building skill and gaining experience so they are that much better down the road when they will undoubtedly be counted on even more.

2) There were a number of very good position battles, and either as a result of that battle or simply as a function of just how many players Washington will play in any one game, it’s simply not useful to pare down the list to only two players per position. Frankly, it’s not an accurate reflection of what Washington fans will see on the field when the Huskies and Tigers square off in Atlanta.

So it’s probably a good rule of thumb to keep this list handy, but also remind yourself that there are going to be a lot of other players that will affect this depth chart, including some true freshmen that had strong fall camps – like the defensive backs (Kyler Gordon, Dominique Hampton and Julius Irvin), the defensive linemen (Tuli Letuligasenoa, Sam Taimani, Mosiah Nasili-Liu and Draco Bynum) and others.
