Every league team will release its depth chart at some point this week with the season upon us. The Pitt two-deep came out this morning with few surprises.
There still is some uncertainty at linebacker. Max Gruder or Tristan Roberts will start on the weak side, while Todd Thomas or Andrew Taglianetti will start at strong side. Taglianetti also plays safety.
Justin Hargrove could be in danger of losing his starting job at defensive end. The depth chart lists Hargrove OR Aaron Donald as the starter there. That is not much of a surprise. Donald had an excellent offseason and fall camp.
K'Waun Phillips and Antwuan Reed are listed as the starting cornerbacks.
Kevin Harper will be the place-kicker.
Plenty of true freshmen will get opportunities. Ten true freshmen are listed on the two-deep: Jones, Anderson, Crockett, Davis, running back Isaac Bennett, safety Lafayette Pitts, safety Lloyd Carrington, linebacker LaQuentin Smith, linebacker Ejuan Price and nose tackle Khaynin Mosley-Smith.
