Depth chart analysis

Emanuel Hall still isn’t fully recovered from his groin injury. True freshman Kam Scott is slotted in as a co-starting wide receiver with Hall for this week’s bout with No. 1 Alabama, but it’s not something Hall should worry about when it comes to his job being taken away after he recovers from injury, like Brown may have to do. This shows his groin injury may be much more serious than some may think — a scary thought with Missouri going into Bryant-Denny this weekend.

Standout true freshman Jalen Knox is listed as a co-starting wide receiver with senior Nate Brown. Knox started off the year as a co-second-string wide out with Columbia native Alex Ofodile, as Odom pinned the two in a position battle. The true freshman won that and has showed out ever since. One reason why Knox may be listed this high is because of Brown’s groin injury that kept him from playing against South Carolina, but there’s no doubt Knox has surpassed the expectations many set for him coming into 2018. Through five games, he has 12 receptions for 219 yards (18.3 yards per reception) and a touchdown — including a five-catch, 110-yard performance against Purdue. It’ll be interesting to see how Odom manages Knox and Brown if Knox keeps performing at a high level.

Drew Lock may have a lot of trouble come Saturday. It’s no secret the Crimson Tide have one of the best defenses in the country. Even with a fully-healthy receiving corps, Lock would no doubt have some trouble against their secondary. Everybody does. But if Hall and Brown see limited roles or, even worse, don’t play against No. 1 Alabama, that could mean very, very bad news for the already-29-point underdogs. Having two true freshmen as Lock’s primary receivers doesn’t bode very well, as the Crimson Tide secondary will surely feast on their youth and lock them down. If that’s the case, it could be a long night for Missouri.

True freshman Trajan Jeffcoat is listed as the third-string defensive end. The Columbia, South Carolina native played a few snaps against his hometown Gamecocks last Saturday. He was a little too hyped up on his first play and drew an offsides penalty, but he’s a solid talent. Jeffcoat was a three-star prospect who notched 13 sacks in his senior season.
