Some Random Points for May

ESPN.com is running through its post-spring previews, and featured the Independents the other day. The preview is dead on about the Midshipmen, and writer Mark Schlabach (who usually I don't care for) does a good job all around in running through the different teams. It should be interesting to see how Western Kentucky adjusts to I-A ball this year, especially with an opener at Florida.

Moving right along, it looks as though I forgot to link the latest depth chart, which can be found at NavySports.com. A number of players have either moved up or down on the defensive side of the ball, and some "ORs" have been added to indicate the closeness of two players in terms of ability. I for one don't invest a ton in these pre-fall camp depth charts, but it's something interesting to look at during a slow off-season.

As you can see from the depth chart, senior cornerback Greg Thrasher has moved back into a starting position, while sophomores Blake Carter and Jesse Iwuji seem to be in position to battle for the start at rover come fall. Ketric Buffin has been moved over to Left Corner for the time being, and will presumably compete for that starting job with incumbent Rashawn King. Michel Walsh is also listed ahead of Casey Hebert at the Right Defensive End position. Of course none of these positions can be presumed safe, and these players will continue to compete during fall camp for the starting spot come opening day at Temple.
