Notre Dame Fighting Irish Depth Chart VS Vanderbilt Commodores


As the Notre Dame Fighting Irish prepare to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores this Saturday, they released the depth charts. This week there are a few slight changes that are subtle, but could potentially mean quite a bit.

OFFENSE

WR TE LT LG C RG RT WR WR RB QB
WR TE LT LG C RG RT WR WR RB QB
Miles Boykin Alize Mack Liam Eichenberg Alex Bars Sam Mustipher Tommy Kraemer Robert Hainsey Chris Finke Chase Claypool Jafar Armstrong Brandon Wimbush
Kevin Austin Nic Weishar Jarrett Patterson Dillan Gibbons Trevor Ruhland Josh Lugg Aaron Banks Joe Wilkens Michael Young OR Tony Jones Jr. Ian Book
Javon McKinley OR Cole Kmet Lawrence Keys III OR Dexter Williams
Brock Wright OR Avery Davis
C’Bo Flemister

While the depth chart looks exactly the same as last week, Cole Kmet’s injury does change things up quite a bit with more action for both Nic Weishar and Brock Wright should be expected. Kelly had this to say about Kmet:


“It’s more of a high-ankle sprain. He’s going to be limited. It’s going to take some time. I would think he’s doubtful for this week.”

DEFENSE

Julian Love Alohi Gilman Asmar Bilal Daelin Hayes Jonathan Bonner Jerry Tillery Khalid Kareem Drue Tranquill Te’von Coney Jalen Elliott Troy Pride Jr.
Donte Vaughn Devin Studstill Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah OR Julian Okwara Kurt Hinish Jayson Ademilola Ade Ogundeji Jordan Genmark Heath Bo Bauer Nick Coleman Tariq Bracy
Nicco Fertitta Justin Ademilola OR Micah Dew-Treadway Jamir Jones Shayne Simon Jonathan Jones OR Houston Griffith

The depth chart this week gets a slight variation. The “OR” for Bo Bauer and Jonathan Jones is gone. Bo Bauer is now listed as the first man in at the MIKE linebacker spot. As a freshman, this is a huge deal for Bauer for a couple of reasons:

  1. Te’von Coney will be heading to the NFL after this season and Bauer will have 3 years of eligiblity left.
  2. Te’von Coney is going to need some rest at some point this season. His snap count is a little high after 97 plays against Ball State.

SPECIAL TEAMS

Jonathan Doerer Justin Yoon Tyler Newsome John Shannon Ian Book Chris Finke Jafar Armstrong
Justin Yoon Jonathan Doerer Jeff Riney Nic Weishar Tyler Newsome Alohi Gilman Tony Jones Jr.

The big news here is that Jonathan Doerer is still the kickoff specialist even though he shanked a kickoff out of bounds for the second week in a row. The small news is that Nic Weishar is now listed as the next man in at Long Snapper over walk-on Michael Vinson. I’m not sure what that means, but the more Weishar — the better.

Editors’s Note: I will put the jersey numbers on the depth charts a little later. Someone asked last week, and I forgot, and then ran out of time. Should be updated late Tuesday night. Thanks.
