Air Force releases initial depth chart

Published: August 30, 2010, 10:56 am, by admin

The Falcons sent their first weekly release of the season, which means the first depth chart of the season. Most of this information shouldn’t be too surprising to you, especially if you follow the blog, but there were a few interesting tidbits:

- Darius Jones, not Cody Getz is listed as the second tailback. I have to believe that’s very close though. Both ran extensively with the second-team offense through camp.

- Alex Means is listed ahead of Patrick Hennessey at outside linebacker.

- Freshman Jamil Cooks is listed behind Andre Morris Jr., which surprised me. He must have made a late push to pass Wale Lawal.

- P.J. Adeji-Paul is listed at safety, and as the first-team nickel back.

- Jonathan Warzeka, Mikel Hunter and Cody Getz are the kickoff returners. Not a surprise Reggie Rembert isn’t on kickoff return, he did very little of that in camp.

- Tim Jefferson is listed as the starting quarterback, which is no surprise.

- Kyle Halderman is listed as Kevin Fogler’s backup, but I would anticipate he and Warzeka split time at the “Z” spot.

- No surprises on the starting offensive line – that group remained intact from spring practice on.

- Keil Bartholomew is listed as the punter ahead of Ben Cochran.

Here it is in full, from Air Force’s release:
