Syracuse post-spring depth chart

May, 2, 2012
Syracuse released its post-spring depth chart Wednesday afternoon. But before you get too excited about some of the changes, note that injured starters are not listed with the first team.

That does not mean they have been demoted. It simply means they were unable to practice for part of all of spring, so other players obviously stepped in for them.

A few observations:
  • Marcus Sales is listed as one of the starting receivers, along with Jeremiah Kobena. Sales missed all of last season after he was arrested on drug-related charges. Those have been dropped. Alec Lemon, the leading returning receiver, missed the spring with a shoulder injury but is expected to be a starter once he returns.
  • Ashton Broyld is listed as the No. 3 running back, behind Jerome Smith and Prince-Tyson Gulley. This should be one of the better competitions going into the fall, especially if Adonis Ameen-Moore returns healthy.
  • Donnie Simmons is listed at one of the defensive end spots, ahead of Deon Goggins, who moved from tackle. Brandon Sharpe is listed as the other end.
  • In all, four returning starters are not listed with the first team -- Lemon, offensive tackle Justin Pugh, linebacker Marquis Spruill and cornerback Keon Lyn.
