Wyoming Depth Chart Update

Let's look at how the Cowboys have changed their depth chart as they prepare for Nevada.

Miraldo Michel is now healthy but Eddie Yarborough will getting the start at left defensive end. The redshirt has been been steadily improving this season. He has 14 tackles, two TFL and one sack on the year. Sadly for Mark Willis fans this may mean we see less of him. Coach Christensen did praise Willis for his play against Idaho and still expects him to be used in pass rush.

The shuffling at safety continues this week. Luke Ruff has been the one constant at free safety. His backup is listed as Kenny Browder OR Mark Nzeocha. Luke Anderson is starting at strong safety with Chad Reese as the backup. I would expect Reese to see plenty of reps this week.

Oliver Schober and Siaosi Hala'api'api are both listed as starters at MIKE linebacker.

Brandon Miller is back as the top running back, Shaun Wick slides back to second and D.J. May remains in third. We didn't cover this last week but Kody Sutton will be redshirting this year. Nehemie Kankolongo used his redshirt last year, so he will lose a year of eligibility if he plays or not. No idea when or if we will see him on the field.

Robert Herron is healthy and will be starting this week. That means Trey Norman is now his backup. Your four starting WR's are Herron, Claiborne, Rufran and McNeill.
