Previously, I broke down who I feel will be on the 2011 Hawkeyes offensive depth chart when the Iowa football program suits up September 3, to take on Tennessee Tech.
Here, I'll look at each defensive position two players deep, as this side of the ball is much more intriguing than the offense.
As previously mentioned, at first glance, it looks reminiscent of 2008, in that the Hawkeyes might rotate players for a few games until the coaches feel they find the right fit.
I think that will be the case with two of the positions on defense.
I also think the defensive line will rotate a bit more than the Hawkeyes usually do. I'm not saying they'll regularly rotate 12 men, but, outside of Mike Daniels, five players will regularly get subbed in and out as the situation demands.
Only 55 more days, Iowa fans.
