Florida vs. East Carolina: Still Will Grier or Treon Harris at QB on Gators' depth chart

New, comments

The real surprise, though, is where Demarcus Robinson sits.

It may be Labor Day, but that's not preventing anyone associated with the Florida Gators from not doing the work of releasing their depth chart for Florida's Saturday meeting with East Carolina.

Here is that chart in table form for offense, defense, and special teams.

Offensive Depth Chart

Position First Team Second Team Third Team
Quarterback Will Grier OR Treon Harris
Running back Kelvin Taylor Jordan Scarlett OR Jordan Cronkrite
Outside receiver Ahmad Fulwood C.J. Worton Demarcus Robinson
Outside receiver Antonio Callaway Ahmad Fulwood
Slot receiver Brandon Powell Alvin Bailey Valdez Showers
Tight end Jake McGee C'yontai Lewis DeAndre Goolsby
Left tackle Mason Halter OR Martez Ivey
Left guard Trip Thurman Travaris Dorsey
Center Cam Dillard Tyler Jordan
Right guard Antonio Riles Andrew Mike
Right tackle David Sharpe Fred Johnson

The OR at quarterback is now a little surprising, given Grier's slightly superior play against New Mexico State, but Jim McElwain said Saturday night that he was leaning toward playing both quarterbacks against the Pirates. And the OR for Ivey behind Halter reads a little like hedging a bet that the talented freshman will be ready to go.

The real surprise, though, is either Robinson slipping to a third-string position after leading Florida in catches on Saturday or Fulwood somehow not only taking Robinson's place as a starter but appearing twice on the depth chart despite dropping the only pass sent his way against the Aggies.

When asked about the surprising slip for Robinson in his Monday press conference, McElwain alluded to Robinson failing to do things that didn't show up in the box score, saying "It's about doing what's right, and, really, what you put on film."

Defensive Depth Chart

Position First Team Second Team
End Jonathan Bullard Cece Jefferson
Nose Joey Ivie Taven Bryan OR Khairi Clark
Tackle Caleb Brantley Jordan Sherit
RUSH Bryan Cox, Jr. Alex McCalister
SLB Alex Anzalone Jeremi Powell
MLB Antonio Morrison Alex Anzalone
WLB Jarrad Davis Daniel McMillian
CB Vernon Hargreaves III Deiondre Porter
CB Jalen Tabor OR Quincy Wilson
Safety Keanu Neal OR Marcell Harris Duke Dawson
Safety Marcus Maye Nick Washington
Nickel Brian Poole Quincy Wilson

While Maye displaces Washington after his suspension, McCalister slots in behind Cox at RUSH. And Sherit, after actually starting at a RUSH position, according to Florida's official box score, is now inside at defensive tackle.

Special Teams Depth Chart

Position First Team Second Team
Kicker Austin Hardin Jorge Powell
Punter Johnny Townsend Austin Hardin
Kick returner Brandon Powell Vernon Hargreaves III
Punt returner Vernon Hargreaves III Brandon Powell
Holder Johnny Townsend Case Harrison
Long snapper Ryan Farr OR Jonathan Haney
