There were a few interesting things to contemplate from the various practice information sources today. It does seem the coaches are working out a depth chart. There were also some surprises of note.

While this is certainly not the official depth chart, it could be close.

There appears to be a viable backup for every starter including the center.  Brandon Mosley appears to be at least learning the left tackle position. Several linemen have lost a substantial amount of weight. While there are other offensive linemen on the roster, this is how they were lined up recently.

It would appear that Gus Malzhan has an offensive line capable of sustaining his high tempo pace for an entire game. It looks as if Auburn fans are about to see the pace Malzhan has been working toward since arriving at Auburn.

Mario Fannin, Demond Washington, Onterio McCalebb, and Terrell Zachery have been returning kicks.

The Auburn football team will hold another scrimmage tomorrow evening.
