WILLIAMS: Projecting Iowa State’s depth chart


Iowa State has yet to release a depth chart since Matt Campbell took the job. With tomorrow being the spring game, I thought I’d take a stab at what this thing MIGHT look like at the season opener. I’ve included some notes/analysis too. 


QB: Joel Lanning, Jr.

Zeb Noland, Fr. — Jacob Park could be this guy but he isn’t on campus yet. Noland has been impressive. 

RB: Mike Warren, So.

David Montgomery, Fr. — Montgomery being ready is a best-case scenario here. 

WR: Allen Lazard, Jr.

Brandon Harris, Jr.

WR: Jauan Wesley, Jr.

Trever Ryen, Jr. 

WR: Dondre Daley, Sr.

Carson Epps, So.

TE: Justin Chandler, Sr.

Clifford Fernandez, Jr. — I think that Chase Allen could play as a true freshman. 

LT: Jake Campos, Jr.

Shawn Curtis, Jr. 

LG: Nick Fett, Sr.

Bryce Meeker, Fr.

C: Julian Good-Jones, Fr. — Was told by a source today that this kid will play in the NFL someday. 

Patrick Scoggins, Sr.

RG: Patrick Scoggins, Sr. — He’s had a pretty good spring. Apparently is more comfortable not snapping the ball. 

Karson Green, Jr. 

RT: Jaypee Philbert, Jr.

Shawn Curtis, Jr.


DE: Jhaustin Thomas, Sr.

Darius White, Sr.

DT: Demond Tucker, Sr.

Vernell Trent, Jr. 

DT: Pierre Aka, Sr.

Bobby Leath, Sr. — Need this guy to realize how good he can be. 

DE: Gabe Luna, Sr.

J.D. Waggoner, Jr.

MLB: Jordan Harris, Sr.

Kane Seeley, Sr.

WLB: Willie Harvey, So.

Brian Mills, Jr.

Nickel: D’Andre Payne, Jr. — Been the biggest surprise this spring. He’s going to be really, really good. 

Reggan Northrup, So.

CB: Brian Peavy, So.

Jay Jones, Sr. 

CB: Jomal Wiltz, Sr. — Tribune could be this guy but had a pretty average junior year and Wiltz keeps getting better and better. 

Nigel Tribune, Sr.

SS: Mike Johnson, So. — He really stood out in last weekend’s scrimmage. Coaches love him. 

Thadd Daniels, Jr. 

FS: Kamari Cotton-Moya, Jr.

De’Monte Ruth, So.


K: Cole Netten, Sr.

P: Collin Downing, Jr.

KR: Jomal Wiltz, Sr.

PR: Trever Ryen, Jr.
