Miami Hurricanes Depth Chart - A Few Key Moves

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Canes released their updated depth chart after the NCSt victory. A few changes of note, but none more impactful than having Denzel Perryman back in the middle of the defense.

The depth chart for the upcoming game with Notre Dame is now public, and while most of the positions remain the same, there are a few moves that are worth noting, and a few subtle changes that those in the know expected. Here's the chart:

To begin with, our linebackers are whole again! Denzel Perryman is back after missing the past two weeks with a leg injury. His presence is very much welcome, and immediately restores this corps to what we had gotten used to. Gionni Paul played about 50/50 in his absence, making a few big plays but overall just playing like we all thought he might, which is not very well. All that aside, he is still listed at OLB along with Tyrone Cornelius as one of those OR spots. The other side is taken by Eddie Johnson, who has established himself as one of the best players on the defense. Jimmy Gaines (who played well in Perryman's absence) and Raphael Kirby as listed as Perryman's backups.

In a fairly interesting move, Seantrel Henderson is now listed as an OR with Ereck Flowers at right tackle. Golden had experimented with Henderson at left tackle, but it didn't go well. With Ben Jones being out this week, RS freshman Hunter Wells is listed as Malcolm Bunche's backup on the left.

There's not much movement in the wide receivers, although Herb Waters now appears to be the official heir apparent to Malcolm Lewis while he is out. The running backs are of course the same, as are the tight ends, with Dyron Dye retaining his starting spot.

The safeties are listed about the same, with Deon Bush and A.J. Highsmith starting, and Telemaque and Rogers backing them up. Personally, I wouldn't mind if Telemaque didn't see as much time after his completely blown assignment in the game last week. Forced fumble or not, that was just a mind-numbingly stupid mistake. At corner back, Antonio Crawford and Tracy Howard are listed as an OR tandem behind Brandon McGee. This is a bit interesting, because Crawford got visibly beaten on more than a few routes Saturday, and one has to wonder if Howard will see more playing time until Crawford can get up to speed. Thomas Finnie and Ladarius Gunter have the other side locked down.

Botts Mode is back and better than ever on special teams.
