Hurricanes Depth Chart - FSU/Homecoming Edition

It's FSU week in Coral Gables, and the newest depth chart has some big time moves.

The game against UNC proved costly for more than one reason. Not only did it give the Canes their first ACC loss, but Stephen Morris was hurt at the end of the game. Granted, he should be fine, and at the most will miss one game. Unfortunately, that game happens to be the Miami homecoming tilt against rival Florida State.

The depth chart was released today in preparation for the rivalry game, and you'll notice quite a bit of change. Here's the chart:

  • Golden is being non-committal about whether or not Morris will play Saturday. He stated that the team will prep with Ryan Williams taking the first team snaps, but some think there is a chance Morris could end up playing. Personally? I would rather have a 100% Ryan Williams than an 80% Stephen Morris.
  • The starting RB position is back in the hands of Mike James. This is mainly because Duke Johnson is a bit nicked up right now, and just hasn't been himself lately. Duke will still play, but his role will be, and rightfully should be, a bit more limited.
  • Seantrel Henderson has started at RT the last two games, and has played well. Ereck Flowers remains a force to be reckoned with, though, and they are both listed as first teamers this week.
  • For the biggest move of the day, Denzel Perryman is now on the outside, with Eddie Johnson opposite him. This move is a dual-edged sword, though. While it does move all of the LB speed to the outside, it also weakens the inside significantly. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
  • As far as the middle of the LB corps goes, expect to see a rotation of Paul, Gaines, and Kirby until one of them shows consistency and beats out the others. My vote is on Kirby.
  • Deon Bush remains a starter, although now Highsmith is his backup. Kacy Rogers II moves into the starting spot opposite Bush.
  • Ladarius Gunter remains the starter at CB across from Brandon McGee. Tracy Howard now the full time backup to Gunter, which is bolstered by Golden's praise of his play of late. Golden said that the light bulb is starting to come on for Howard, and he is pushing through that freshman wall.
  • In possibly a sleeper interesting note, redshirt freshman Ricardo Williams is now listed on the depth chart at backup behind Anthony Chickillo. Whether this is a play to motivate Chick to go harder, or Williams has legitimately earned the spot remains to be seen. Regardless, we need more penetration from the defensive end spot, no matter who provides it.
  • Special teams remains the same. Yes, this does mean that Wieclaw is still your field goal specialist. He did better against UNC, but it will be interesting to see how long he is left in if his struggles return this week against FSU.

So what are your thoughts, people? I would imagine a good lot of you have an opinion on the Perryman move.
