The North Texas football team’s post-spring depth chart is out. UNT passed along a copy.

Here it is.


There are a ton of surprises — as is always the case — and some of what we expected.

Here are some immediate thoughts:

– We knew Andrew McNulty and Josh Greer were in a dead heat in the quarterback race coming out of spring practice. What was somewhat surprising is that Dajon Williams is listed fourth. He didn’t participate in the spring game due to a sprained ankle, but UNT coaches talked about getting him back into the race due to his talent level. Fourth string is a long way to climb to get to the starting job.

– Cyril Lemon has played guard throughout his career, but is listed as the starter at right tackle heading into the off-season. Lemon can play any spot up front, but it will be interesting to see if UNT leaves him out there.

– The decision on Lemon could be impacted by who UNT slates to start at the other guard spot opposite Mason Y’Barbo. Shawn McKinney is there now. UNT could move McKinney in at guard and leave Lemon at tackle or move Lemon back to guard. At that point, my guess is backup tackle Ryan Rentfro moves into the lineup. Rentfro is listed second on the depth chart at left tackle behind Antonio Johnson.

– On defense, the big surprise is Malik Dilonga getting the nod at one defensive end spot over Jarrian Roberts. Dilonga is highly talented, but has not proven a lot on the field yet.

– Sid Moore has also impressed and is second on the depth chart at defensive tackle.

– Fred Scott has won the middle linebacker job.

– There is no sign of Oregon transfer Anthony Wallace

– Freddie Warner and Sheldon Wade are battling it out for one safety job.
