While many Pac-12 schools are now treating depth charts as if they spread the plague, Utah does a really cool thing: It provides consistent updated depth charts to fans and media.
Here are some things I noticed:
The Utes officially have an H-back and a tight end. Jake Murphy, son of Pac-12 blog hero Dale Murphy (I will mention your dad only 14 more times, Jake), is the starting tight end, and Dallin Rogers is No. 1 at H-back. This strikes me as a good way to get both these guys on the field.
The latest depth chart is revealing about defensive line depth. Touted junior college recruit Junior Salt, previously listed as an offensive lineman, is the No. 2 defensive tackle behind Dave Kruger. Converted running back Thretton Palamo is the backup left defensive end behind Nate Fakahafua. Palamo was behind Joe Kruger at right end. Now junior college transfer Niasi Leota is there.
Rover linebacker is still a battle. There's an "OR" between Jacoby Hale and LT Filiaga, and neither was listed there in early April.
