Missouri's depth chart for Arkansas features just a couple of small changes

New, comments

Missouri has released its game notes for the Arkansas game (PDF). Let's talk about the depth chart.

Derrick Forsythe / Rock M Nation

As one would expect, Mizzou will be gunning for bowl eligibility* in Fayetteville with a lineup that looks pretty similar to that of recent weeks.

* Yes, there's a chance that Mizzou qualifies for a bowl at 5-7 because there aren't enough bowl eligible teams. We'll cross that bridge next week, but for now, a) yes, Mizzou should accept such a bid as silly as it may feel, and b) it would be so much fun if the Tigers got to play, like, 5-7 Nebraska or 5-7 Kansas State in Gary Pinkel's last game. Can the universe make that happen ... even if Mizzou DOES win on Friday?

Offense

QB
Drew Lock (6'4, 205, Fr.)
Eddie Printz (6'3, 205, So.) *OR*
Marvin Zanders (6'1, 185, RSFr.)

No changes.

Russell Hansbrough (5'9, 195, Sr.)
Ish Witter (5'10, 190, So.)
Tyler Hunt (5'11, 210, Sr.)
Chase Abbington (6'2, 215, So.)

No changes.

WR-X
J'Mon Moore (6'3, 190, So.)
Emanuel Hall (6'3, 200, Fr.)
Eric Laurent (6'2, 215, Jr.)

WR-H
Nate Brown (6'3, 205, So.)
Cam Hilton (6'0, 180, Fr.)
Ray Wingo (5'11, 180, RSFr.)

WR-Z
Wesley Leftwich (6'1, 205, Sr.)
Keyon Dilosa (6'3, 200, RSFr.)
DeSean Blair (6'3, 190, RSFr.)

TE
Sean Culkin (6'6, 245, Jr.)
Jason Reese (6'5, 250, So.)
Clayton Echard (6'5, 260, Sr.)
Kendall Blanton (6'6, 250, RSFr.)

No changes.

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

LG
Alec Abeln (6'3, 290, So.) *OR*
Nate Crawford (6'5, 310, So.)
Brad McNulty (6'4, 305, Sr.)

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

RG

Kevin Pendleton (6'4, 315, RSFr.)

RT
Taylor Chappell (6'5, 305, Sr.)
Paul Adams (6'6, 290, RSFr.)

A change! Abeln will evidently finish the year as he started it: as Missouri's starting left guard, where he'll split time with Nate Crawford.

Evidently, Paul Adams saw some snaps at right tackle against Tennessee. This isn't anything particularly significant, but it's at least nice to see Abeln, Adams, and Kevin Pendleton earning a little bit more playing time (along with Crawford), since they'll start next spring as presumptive starters.
