Akron releases depth chart for OSU matchup

By mrasor Published: August 31, 2011

Football

Akron is going to be very young in positions that are critical to scoring, namely quarterback, running back and receiver.

The depth chart is posted below.

It should be clear that the Zips' best positions will be defensive line and running back (assuming Jawon Chisholm is healthy and one-third as good as he looked in the spring). Big questions abound at receiver and in the secondary.

All of this is to say, if Akron is going to win games, it will be by forcing turnovers and grinding out a field-position battle.
