UCLA depth chart, Week 1 vs Rice

LOS ANGELES -- UCLA coach Jim Mora on Saturday released the team's depth chart for the season opener at Rice, but said not to take it that seriously.

"It's just some names on a piece of paper right now," he said.

Asked how much of it was set in stone, he replied "about none of it," but then recanted.

"Quarterback, running back, secondary," he said. "Linebackers aren’t, d-line is still a little bit up in the air, receivers we rotate those guys through so you can pick and choose what you want. The offensive line we’re still trying to decide what the best combination is."

So here is the depth chart for the Aug. 30 opener at Rice, for what it's worth:
