Joe Nicholson-US PRESSWIRE

Fall Camp is officially over, and with Game Week for Boise State on tap the Huskies have released the first official depth chart for 2013.  We've been assessing each position group this week and giving our projections - let's take a look at the official depth and see how we did and if there are any surprises:

2013 Depth Chart

To review, here's the stream of articles we've been doing this week looking at each position group:

Fall Camp Assessment Stream

QB: As expected, Keith Price starting with Cyler Miles and Jeff Lindquist backing him up.

RB: No surprises here.

FB: We didn't talk about this group, but it's as expected with Psalm Wooching followed by converted QB Derrick Brown.  I expect we'll see some use of these guys in H-Back type roles to supplement to the tight ends.

WR: A couple mild surprises as John Ross beats out Jaydon Mickens and Kevin Smith beats out DiAndre Campbell.  All of these guys will see significant action, but this backs up the hype we've heard about Ross and the praise the coaches have had of late for Smith.

TE: As expected with Austin Seferian-Jenkins followed by Joshua Perkins and Michael Hartvigson.  I'm not sure this is a "tell" for Sark's plans for whether to hold ASJ out for disciplinary reasons, but it does suggest that his broken pinkie may not be an issue.

OL: We'll talk in more depth about this in tomorrow's OL assessment article, but a bit of a surprise here to see Ben Riva listed back at RT and Micah Hatchie at LT.  Hopefully we'll get some clarification on Monday from Sark.  Shane Brostek is listed as backup at LG, but given how Cozz mixes and matches his players, I'd guess James Atoe and Jake Eldrenkamp would be the first guys off the bench.  Also a bit of a surprise to see true frosh Coleman Shelton listed as 3rd string at RT - I suspect he's still a candidate to redshirt.

DL: Hau'oli Kikaha moves ahead of Andrew Hudson at DE leaving the Rush spot to Cory Littleton with Josh Shirley backing him up.  Lawrence Lagafuaina has moved ahead of Sione Potoa'e to 2nd string NT.

LB: Princeton Fuimaono and Travis Feeney are listed as co-starters, confirming that Bobo (Fui) has had a terrific camp.

CB: Only surprise is not seeing Travell Dixon listed.  Cleveland Wallace is the primary backup, and Jermaine Kelly appears to be a possibility to see action.

S: Kevin King is listed as an /OR with fellow frosh Trevor Walker as the backup to Sean Parker.  Walker is certain to play this year, but I'm surprised to see the possibility that King could as well.

What do you guys think - are there any surprises on here that jump out at you?
