Unofficial Depth Chart

OCT. 20 -- UCLA doesn't supply depth charts, so every week we'll give you our version...

UCLA stopped issuing a depth chart in the middle of last season, and it wasn't really out of laziness, but because it was almost not applicable.

With how many different formations UCLA uses on both offense and defense, it's a bit limiting to do a depth chart of just the base offense and defense. Given the quantity of different formations and packages UCLA is now using, we could spend far too much time going through all the different variations of which players can play where in which personnel packages. For instance, there are any number of sets that you could say many different receivers "start" in. The same for all three units on the defense. Really, at this point, the only set depth chart would be for quarterback, running back and offensive line.

But for the sake of having one, and for a reference, this is our best estimation of what a depth chart for UCLA would currently look like.

Some players are listed twice, since, if there was an injury at a certain position, this is our estimation of where the UCLA coaches might move a player to compensate.

We've included all scholarship players and the walk-ons that have a chance to play.
