There’s your depth chart for the Texas Tech game. Only three things to note:
1) Mario Alford is now an outside receiver.
2) Jared Barber, who’s been, I don’t know, healthy, is the starter at Will linebacker over Nick Kwiatkoski, and Kwiatkoski apparently practiced last week.
3) Daryl Worley is your new starter at boundary cornerback. He supplants Travis Bell, who blew up the first Baylor touchdown by forgetting it was Cover 3. I wouldn’t abandon hope for Bell. He can play that nickel spot that Worley is going to free up now and Texas Tech does a ton of stuff with its inside receivers, whether it’s 6-foot-5, 260-pound Jace Amaro or 5-foot-6, 160-pound Jakeem Grant.
Also, I feel pretty good about this now.
CB: Daryl Worley
He’s going to play, if not on defense, then on special teams … as a return man … but I wouldn’t be surprised if the things I’ve seen and heard about the true freshman eventually lead to a starting spot. That has more to do with him than the numbers at corner, too. And let’s debunk this, because I’m guilty of it too: He was pegged as a cornerback a while ago. He was not going to be a college safety, and I’ll explain why in a moment.
