Final Arizona football depth chart prediction

New, 3 comments
NCAA Football: Arizona at Oregon Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve made it, gang. It’s officially game week for the Arizona Wildcats.

I wanted to celebrate by putting together my final predictions of the depth chart.

With two players suspended due to COVID protocol violations (WR Jalen Johnson/OL Edgar Burrola) and two opting out (DE JB Brown/RB Darrius Smith), the following two/three deep will not include them. Mind you, it is more likely than not that Johnson and Burrola will be back with the team.

These predictions do not take into account possible injuries that could keep players out either.

With that, here is my final two/three deep before the start of the season. We should get the real thing Monday afternoon.
