Texas Football: Grading the Longhorns' Post-Spring Depth Chart
Quarterback Tyrone Swoopes in Texas' spring game.

The Texas Orange-White Scrimmage is now in the books, leaving us with a post-spring depth chart that fans should be comfortable with as the team gears up for the summer.

For the most part, the Longhorns close spring football on a positive note across most positions. The receivers, defensive line and linebackers are all good to go for next season thanks to returning depth and reliable starters. Those spots are set for the foreseeable future.

Quarterback and running back are hurt the most by the absence of top players. David Ash missed the spring game and will be out until the fall, making Tyrone Swoopes the only true quarterback on the roster until Jerrod Heard arrives in June. The same goes for the running backs, who are awaiting the returns of Johnathan Gray and Joe Bergeron, as well as the enrollment of Donald Catalon.

Though the offensive line is dealing with an injured starter of its own, starting-caliber talent and quality depth are beginning to emerge. This group struggled in Saturday's spring game, but the foundation has been laid for Joe Wickline to work his magic.

All told, the only positions that graded out poorly and have the least positive outlook are tight end and the secondary. And the latter still has Quandre Diggs.


N.B. Starters will be represented in bold lettering, with backups being listed in descending order. Players that were injured, suspended and/or did not play in the spring game were not included on this list.
