Boston College Football: Depth Chart For New Mexico State Game

Ed Wolfstein-USA TODAY Sports

Which injured players returned? Which didn't?

BC was hit by the injury bug last weekend, with at least three players going down with injuries. Yesterday Steve Addazio released his depth chart for New Mexico State which should shed some light on how severe the injuries were. Let's take a look at the team, and how they should face against the Aggies.

Offense

QB
1. Chase Rettig (6-3, 206, Sr.)
2. Josh Bordner (6-4, 220, Jr.) OR Mike Marscovetra (6-4, 207, Sr.)

Chase Rettig wasn't asked to do a lot last weekend and that is exactly how it should be again this weekend. With the wide receiving corp shrinking by the week, his options for pass plays are diminishing as well. If BC jumps to a big lead there is a possibility we see Josh Bordner in the second half which would be great because it would keep Rettig healthy while giving the junior some valuable game experience. The Aggies have a poor pass defense allowing almost 250 yards a game, and ranked 84th in the country.

TB
1. Andre Williams (6-0, 227, Sr.)
2. Myles Willis (5-9, 187, Fr.)

We all know what we have in Andre Williams. Our own version of Beast mode. The Aggies rushing defense is absolutely putrid, dead last in the country allowing 324 yards a game. Again if BC jumps to an early lead we should hope that Williams gets to sit a little and Myles Willis and possibly Tyler Rouse get to play a little.

FB
1. Jake Sinkovec (6-4, 244, Sr.)
2. Bobby Wolford (6-2, 233, R-Fr.)

Probably one of the most valuable receiver options on the team, Sinkovec does his best work on the play action pass when no one is open, or Rettig is flustered.

WR
1. Alex Amidon (6-0, 182, Sr.)
2. Jeffrey Jay (6-2, 195, Jr.)

WR
1. David Dudeck (5-11, 190, So.)
2. Dan Crimmins (6-5, 222, So.)

WR
1. Harrison Jackson (6-3, 201, So.)
2. Dan Crimmins (6-5, 222, So.)

There is the answer to one injury question. Brian Miller is not on the depth chart, which must mean his injury from last weekend was serious enough for him to miss time. This crew is growing frighteningly thin with Marcus Grant, Bobby Swigert, Joel Zoungrana and now Brian Miller out. As each week passes it seems like Rettig's options to pass are growing thin.

Y
1. C.J. Parsons (6-6, 253, Jr.)
2. Michael Giacone (6-5, 260, So.) OR Louie Addazio (6-3, 253, So.)

H
1. Mike Naples (6-4, 237, Sr.)

Same as usual, with the losses piling up at the wide receiver position, they are going to have play a bigger role.

LT
1. Matt Patchan (6-6, 300, Sr.)
2. Seth Betancourt (6-6, 298, Jr.) OR Dave Bowen (6-7, 297, So.)

LG
1. Bobby Vardaro (6-5, 310, Jr.)
2. Paul Gaughan (6-6, 303, So.) OR Dan Lembke (6-6, 304, So.)

C
1. Andy Gallik (6-3, 302, Jr.)
2. Frank Taylor (6-3, 287, R-Fr.)

RG
1. Harris Williams (6-3, 298, Jr.)
2. Aaron Kramer (6-7, 299, Jr.)

RT
1. Ian White (6-5, 302, Sr.)
2. Jim Cashman (6-7, 298, R-Fr.)

Great game played by this group, they face off against a New Mexico State defense that has managed only 10 sacks the entire season. Not to downplay the Aggies, but this should be the easiest job the Eagles O-line have had since they played Army back in September.

Defense

DE
1. Kaleb Ramsey (6-3, 285, Sr.)
2. Brian Mihalik (6-9, 283, Jr.) OR Nick Lifka (6-2, 274, So.)

LT
1. Jaryd Rudolph (6-3, 275, Sr.)
2. Truman Gutapfel (6-3, 261, Fr.)

RT
1. Dominic Appiah (6-5, 291, Jr.)
2. Connor Wujciak (6-3, 300, So.)

DE
1. Kasim Edebali (6-3, 246, Sr.)
2. Kevin Kavalec (6-3, 242, Fr.)

Kaleb Ramsey and Jaryd Rudolph are both healthy enough to play it appears, we can all breathe a relative sigh of relief. Boston College is 20th in the nation with 23 sacks, while New Mexico State has allowed 17 sacks this season.

SLB
1. Kevin Pierre-Louis (6-1, 225, Sr.)
2. Josh Keyes (6-2, 215, Jr.)

MLB
1. Steele Divitto (6-2, 237, Sr.)
2. Sean Duggan (6-4, 241, Jr.)

WLB
1. Steven Daniels (6-0, 249, So.)
2. Mike Strizak (6-2, 239, R-Fr.) OR Tim Joy (6-2, 222, So.)

Everyone is back again, remaining healthy it seems. Josh Keyes didn't appear to dress last week (even though he was listed on the depth chart), so it will be interesting to see if he plays this week.  New Mexico State is 95th in the country rushing the ball, averaging just over 134 yards a game.

LC
1. Manny Asprilla (5-11, 177, Jr.)
2. Al Louis-Jean Jr. (6-2, 195, So.)

SS
1. Dominique Williams (6-0, 212, Jr.)
2. Spencer Rositano (6-1, 210, Jr.) OR Matt Milano (6-0, 200, Fr.)

FS
1. Sean Sylvia (6-0, 208, Jr.)
2. Justin Simmons (6-3, 188, So.) OR Ted Davenport (6-1, 203, Jr.)

RC
1. Bryce Jones (6-1, 166, So.)
2. C.J. Jones (5-11, 185, Jr.) or John Johnson (6-0, 180, Fr)

I wasn't overly impressed by the play of the secondary last week, a lot of missed tackles and blown coverages. But they did make some plays especially on the interception by Asprilla. The Aggie passing attack averages 243 yards a game, and have thrown 11 interceptions so far this season.
