Post-Spring Northwestern Depth Chart Projection

Now that spring practice has wrapped up, here's our latest projection of how the depth chart will shape up for Northwestern this fall. Rather than go with our gut on position battles that are still very undecided, we've listed co-starters. However, after Camp Kenosha, we'll be able to project a much more accurate picture of how the depth chart will look. We'll have more spring wrap-up material in the coming weeks, but here are some notes on the last practice and the spring as a whole, particularly concerning position battles.
