We haven't had a depth chart from spring practice in years. Fans get the one spring game. To me, it's all about reading between the lines... What can we actually learn in spring practice? Here are some things I'll look for. 1. How will the offensive line dominos fall out? First on the list: Matt Farniok - will he be spending more time at OG or RT? If he's at guard, who's getting snaps at OT? Gaylord? Benhart? Usually out of spring, we get enough news reports giving us the lineup on OL that we can figure it out. Austin will keep rotating the linemen around I'm sure, but at OL we should see the preferred rotation. That's about as close as we get to a depth chart. 2. Martinez health. I doubt we'll learn much about any sort of "quarterback race" from spring practice. We should find out if Martinez is healthy and ready to roll out for spring. I expect he'll have a green jersey in any case, but can he throw and run. We might get some hints about how the rest of the QB race is going to fall out (is Luke ahead of Vedral or is Smothers some kind of wonderkind). 3. Who's the current #3 WR? Robinson and Warner are two. Hopefully someone will step up as the 3rd. I do expect Manning to qualify (he just needs grades unlike Betts who needs grades and a test score), but assuming he makes it we still need more than Robinson/Warner/Manning. Houston or Nance or a walk-on? JD is a bonus, and besides we won't learn anything about that situation during the spring (unless it's bad news). 4. Which of the young LBs is going to step up? They can't all play. It's a big spring for them. This is their chance to make a move. It's really early in their career, but some could get passed by and buried on the depth chart. Is Henrich healthy? He was nearly a starter last year as a true freshman (definitely in the 2-deep). EMC? How about Reimers? I'd really like to know if Nebraska is willing to go with some of the younger guys in place of the experienced LBs, but that question has to wait until the season starts. 5. On the DL, who plays NG other than Daniels? I expect plenty of rotation in the DL, and it won't be determined who's starting until fall, but I'd like to know who can play inside. So I have enough questions to keep me interested in spring practice.
