Mississippi State's pre-spring depth chart

Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen has released his pre-spring depth chart. The Bulldogs open spring practice on Friday, the first SEC school to do so.

Of note is that James Carmon is listed as one of the co-starters at left offensive tackle along with redshirt freshman Blaine Clausell. The 6-foot-7, 330-pound Carmon is making the move to offense after coming to Mississippi State last year as a defensive tackle.

Also, senior Quentin Saulsberry is listed as the starter at center, taking over for J.C. Brignone. Saulsberry played guard last season.

The three starting linebackers, according to the pre-spring depth chart, are senior Brandon Wilson in the middle, and juniors Mike Hunt and Cameron Lawrence at the two outside spots.

Juniors Trevor Stigers and Shane McCardell are listed as co-starters at Pernell McPhee's old defensive end spot.

The Bulldogs return seven starters on offense and seven on defense.
