Minimal depth chart changes for Missouri following the win over South Carolina

New, 7 comments

Nate Crawford is back as Missouri's starting right tackle, DeSean Blair is back as a backup receiver, and tight end Sean Culkin is still out.

Offense

QB
Drew Lock (6'4, 205, Fr.) -- 36-for-53, 361 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT, 4 sacks (5.7 yards/att.); 6 carries, 27 yards (4.5)
Eddie Printz (6'3, 205, So.) *OR*
Marvin Zanders (6'1, 185, RSFr.)

We already knew that Maty Mauk was still suspended, so there are no surprises here. And that's perfectly fine. Maty Mauk was not listed on the depth chart but is still on the roster.

RB
Russell Hansbrough (5'9, 195, Sr.) -- 24 carries, 92 yards (3.8); 5 targets, 4 catches, 16 yards (3.2)
Ish Witter (5'10, 190, So.) -- 70 carries, 285 yards (4.1), 1 TD; 11 targets, 7 catches, 46 yards (4.2)
Tyler Hunt (5'11, 210, Sr.) -- 13 carries, 49 yards (3.8); 4 targets, 4 catches, 166 yards (41.5), 1 TD
Chase Abbington (6'2, 215, So.) -- 5 carries, 27 yards (5.4); 2 targets, 0 catches

Missouri rode the hot hand -- Ish Witter -- against South Carolina last week. We'll see if Hansbrough can make some more progress with his ankle and actually have a breakout game at some point.

WR-X
J'Mon Moore (6'3, 190, So.) -- 30 targets, 15 catches, 173 yards (5.8), 2 TD
DeSean Blair (6'3, 190, RSFr.) -- 3 targets, 1 catch, 21 yards (7.0)
Emanuel Hall (6'3, 200, Fr.) -- 6 targets, 2 catches, 12 yards (2.0)

WR-H
Nate Brown (6'3, 205, So.) -- 26 targets, 17 catches, 192 yards (7.4), 4 TD
Ray Wingo (5'11, 180, RSFr.) -- 6 targets, 3 catches, 23 yards (3.8)
Cam Hilton (6'0, 180, Fr.) -- 1 target, 1 catch, 9 yards

WR-Z
Wesley Leftwich (6'1, 205, Sr.) -- 17 targets, 8 catches, 101 yards (5.9), 1 TD
Keyon Dilosa (6'3, 200, RSFr.) -- 7 targets, 6 catches, 49 49 yards (7.0)
Eric Laurent (6'2, 215, Jr.) -- 1 target, 1 catch, 4 yards

TE
Sean Culkin (6'6, 245, Jr.) -- 14 targets, 12 catches, 101 yards (7.2)
Clayton Echard (6'5, 260, Sr.) -- 2 targets, 1 catch, 6 yards (3.0) *OR*
Jason Reese (6'5, 250, So.) -- 16 targets, 10 catches, 92 yards (5.8)
Kendall Blanton (6'6, 250, RSFr.)

The starters remain the same -- Sean Culkin's still out with his ankle injury -- but there has been some shuffling on the second and third string: DeSean Blair is the only notable change at WR, he returns from three weeks in Mizzou's concussion protocol following the car accident involving Terry Beckner Jr, Trevon Walters and Keyon Dilosa.

DeSean Blair's back as Moore's backup, and Keyon Dilosa's back to the Z position. Meanwhile, Thomas Richard has fallen to the fourth string, evidently.

LT
Connor McGovern (6'4, 305, Sr.) -- 33 career starts
Malik Cuellar (6'5, 300, Jr.)

LG
Brad McNulty (6'4, 305, Sr.) -- 16 career starts *OR*
Alec Abeln (6'3, 290, So.) -- 2 career starts

C
Evan Boehm (6'3, 310, Sr.) -- 45 career starts
Sam Bailey (6'5, 280, RSFr.)

RG
Mitch Hall (6'5, 310, Sr.) -- 9 career starts
Kevin Pendleton (6'4, 315, RSFr.)

RT
Nate Crawford (6'5, 310, So.) -- 4 career starts
Taylor Chappell (6'5, 305, Sr.) -- 13 career starts
Paul Adams (6'6, 290, RSFr.)

Malik Cuellar's back after his one-week suspension, and Nate Crawford's back after missing last week with injury. It might be telling, though, that Chappell is still listed as RT instead of moving back to LG -- they might not be planning on giving Crawford a full starter's load.

Defense

DE
Walter Brady (6'3, 255, RSFr.) -- 11.0 tackles, 7.5 TFL (5 sacks), 1 INT, 2 QBH
Marcell Frazier (6'5, 265, So.) -- 5.5 tackles, 3.5 TFL (1 sack), 2 QBH

DT
Terry Beckner Jr. (6'4, 300, Fr.) -- 6.0 tackles, 3 TFL, 1 PBU, 1 QBH
A.J. Logan (6'2, 310, So.) -- 3.0 tackles, 1 TFL, 1 FF
Josh Moore (6'5, 280, Fr.) -- 2.0 tackles

NG
Josh Augusta (6'4, 345, Jr.) -- 7.0 tackles, 3 TFL, 1 PBU, 1 QBH
Rickey Hatley (6'4, 300, Jr.) -- 7.5 tackles, 1.5 TFL, 1 QBH

DE
Charles Harris (6'3, 255, So.) -- 18.0 tackles, 9.5 TFL (3 sacks), 1 FF, 4 QBH
Nate Howard (6'4, 240, Fr.) -- 4.0 tackles, 1.5 TFL, 1 QBH
Spencer Williams (6'3, 245, RSFr.)

No changes here. No reason.

WLB
Kentrell Brothers (6'1, 235, Sr.) -- 43.5 tackles, 4.5 TFL (0.5 sacks), 2 INT, 1 PBU, 2 blocked kicks
Joey Burkett (6'2, 210, So.) -- 6.0 tackles

MLB
Michael Scherer (6'3, 230, Jr.) -- 24.0 tackles, 5 TFL, 1 PBU
Brandon Lee (6'2, 220, RSFr.) -- 0.5 tackles, 1 PBU

SLB
Donavin Newsom (6'2, 230, Jr.) -- 16.5 tackles, 3.5 TFL (1.5 sacks), 1 PBU
Clarence Green (6'0, 220, Sr.) -- 14.0 tackles, 0.5 TFL, 1 blocked kick
Terez Hall (6'2, 215, Fr.) -- 1.5 tackles

No changes here either, beyond the fact that Brothers is no longer listed as questionable. Kentrell Brothers is never questionable.

CB
Kenya Dennis (5'11, 200, Sr.) -- 18.0 tackles, 1 TFL (1 sack), 1 INT, 1 PBU
John Gibson (6'0, 190, Jr.) -- 5.0 tackles, 1 INT, 2 PBU

CB
Aarion Penton (5'10, 190, Jr.) -- 19.5 tackles, 1.5 TFL, 2 PBU, 1 FF
Logan Cheadle (5'10, 180, So.) -- 3.0 tackles
Anthony Hines (6'1, 190, So.)

No changes here, though David Morrison's Snap Decisions piece caught on that Anthony Hines has begun to eat into Logan Cheadle's playing time a bit.

SS
Anthony Sherrils (6'0, 190, So.) -- 19.0 tackles, 1 TFL, 1 INT, 1 PBU, 1 FF, 1 FR
Thomas Wilson (5'10, 190, So.) -- 3.5 tackles, 0.5 TFL

FS
Ian Simon (6'0, 195, Sr.) -- 13.0 tackles, 1 INT, 1 FR
Cortland Browning (6'1, 205, Sr.) -- 5.5 tackles
Tavon Ross (6'0, 200, RSFr.) -- 1.5 tackles

No changes here. Per Snap Decisions, though, I did find it interesting that Cortland Browning got 13 snaps at strong safety for Sherrils, and Thomas Wilson only got three snaps, all at nickel.

Special Teams

K
Andrew Baggett (6'1, 215, Sr.) -- 12-12 PAT, 7-8 FG

P
Corey Fatony (5'11, 185, Fr.) -- 29 punts, 42.5 average, 11 fair caught, 11 inside 20; 24 kickoffs, 54% touchbacks

KR
John Gibson (6'0, 190, Jr.) -- 1 KR, 9 yards
Finis Stribling IV (5'11, 175, RSFr.)
Ray Wingo (5'11, 180, RSFr.)

PR
Cam HIlton (6'1, 180, Fr.) -- 1 PR, 10 yards, 1 fair catch *OR*
Aarion Penton (5'10, 190, Jr.) -- 9 PR, 9.1 average, 1 TD, 7 fair catches

No changes, though with what Hilton showed in his one return opportunity (a 10-yard return that was prevented from being a 60-yarder by a block in the back), I'm guessing the "OR" between Hilton and Penton is only for show unless Hilton messes up.
