Depth chart

Our receivers are officially in place, so here’s an update of our all-decade team depth chart. All seven of our pass catchers are predominantly slotbacks, so we had to get creative when deciding who would line-up at wide out.

Remember to come back to 3DownNation tomorrow when we unveil our three running backs.
