Boston College Football Depth Chart v Colgate

NCAA Football: Georgia Tech at Boston College Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports

Game Week 1 is finally upon us. This Saturday will mark the proper beginning of the Hafley era ft. BC fans. BC unveiled the first two-deep of the season. Let’s take a closer look.

QB: No surprises here

  1. Phil Jurkovec
  2. Dennis Grosel

RB: The freshman Xavier Coleman has been highly regarded since his arrival on the Heights. West Virginia graduate transfer Alec Sinkfield will also figure to get in the mix a lot. Pat Garwo may have the second most experience rushing on the team, but unsurprisingly is pushed further behind (despite the OR designation).

  1. Travis Levy
  2. Alec Sinkfield OR
  3. Xavier Coleman OR
  4. Pat Garwo

X Receiver: CJ Lewis retains his starting spot after excelling in the role last season. Kobay White returning from injury will see plenty of time himself, and another freshman in Williams joins the fold.

  1. CJ Lewis
  2. Kobay White OR
  3. Jaden Williams

F Receiver: In the slot, it’s still Jaelen Gill with Taji Johnson moving over and freshman Lewis Bond.

  1. Jaelen Gill
  2. Taji Johnson OR
  3. Lewis Bond

Z Receiver: Same as last year, it’s Zay’s world and Galloway right behind. Ethon Williams doesn’t make the cut yet.

  1. Zay Flowers
  2. Jehlani Galloway

Tight End: Seems like we’re still figuring this one out with Trae Barry still acclimating. The staff has sung Luchetti’s praises for some time now and he’s finally back healthy. No Spencer Witter, Hunter Long’s primary back up listed.

  1. Joey Luchetti OR
  2. Trae Barry
  3. Charlie Gordinier

Offensive Line: As we’ve all come to know we’re re-shuffling things on the line to 2019 form. Vrabel moves from right to left, Mahogany from left to right, Zion is back to Guard and Petrula vice-versa. Freshman Drew Kendall is backing up Alec Lindstrom.


  1. Tyler Vrabel
  2. Kevin Cline


  1. Zion Johnson
  2. Ozzy Trapilo


  1. Alec Lindstrom
  2. Drew Kendall


  1. Christian Mahogany
  2. Finn Dirstine


  1. Ben Petrula
  2. Jack Conley


DE: There was some back and forth between these two last year, but Sillah wins out.

  1. Shittah Sillah
  2. Brandon Barlow


  1. Izaiah Henderson
  2. TJ Rayam

DT: With the loss of Boozy, sophomore Cam Horsley will get the nod, with Temple transfer Banks in reserve.

  1. Cam Horsley
  2. Khris Banks

DE: The freshman Ezeiruaku is knocking on the door of Valdez, a team captain last season.

  1. Marcus Valdez OR
  2. Donovan Ezeiruaku
  3. Jake Byczko

SLB: Two safety converts move into linebacker. Kam Arnold assumes the linebacker mantle, and freshman defensive back Jaylen Blackwell seems to have made quite the impression.

  1. Kam Arnold
  2. Nick DeNucci OR
  3. Jaylen Blackwell

MLB: Another Temple transfer in Graham-Mobley gets the starting job as expected.

  1. Isaiah Graham-Mobley
  2. Joseph Sparacio

WLB: Hafley has continued to stress how competitions are on going, and linebacker remains that way. Freshman Bryce Steele is right there, but DePalma has the pole position.

  1. Vinny DePalma OR
  2. Bryce Steele
  3. Huge Davis

Nickel: DeBerry will start in the nickel and freshman Shawn Asbury will back him up.

  1. Josh DeBerry
  2. Shawn Asbury

CB: Elijah Jones stays on the outside along with Brandon Sebastian. Freshman CJ Burton and Southern Illinois transfer JT Thompson have each impressed and provide top-tier depth.

  1. Elijah Jones
  2. CJ Burton


  1. Brandon Sebastian
  2. JT Thompson

SS: Muse and FSU transfer Woodbey will continue to deke it out for the starting role. Deon Jones remains out due to injury.

  1. Jaiden Woodbey OR
  2. Jahmin Muse

FS: Maitre comes over from corner and will get the first crack here.

  1. Jason Maitre OR
  2. Mike Palmer


K: Hafley trusts Boom, but this is kicking and all three guys will continue to have a chance to prove themselves, including the freshman Lytton.

  1. Aaron Boumerhi OR
  2. Danny Longman OR
  3. Connor Lytton


  1. Grant Carlson
  2. Danny Longman


  1. John Tessitore
  2. Dennis Grosel

KR: Sinkfield’s shiftiness has caught eyes and he could mix in the return game, but Levy and Flowers will open. Jaelen Gill will not be fielding punts or kicks for now.

  1. Travis Levy
  2. Alec Sinkfield
  3. Jaden Williams


  1. Zay Flowers
  2. Alec Sinkfield OR
  3. Jaden Williams

LS: It’s still a battle for snapping between Livingston and transfer Daniel.

  1. Aidan Livingston OR
  2. Gunner Daniel


  1. Gunner Daniel OR
  2. Aidan Livingston


  1. Danny Longman OR
  2. Stephen Ruiz
