— This depth chart does not include players who will arrive this summer, notably Georgia Tech graduate transfer Parker Braun, who will immediately become the favorite to start at left guard. That’s the position with the most significant remaining competition.

— Senior wide receiver John Burt is not listed after running track this spring, but he’s expected back, it’s just hard to say where he’ll slot immediately with the flanker position so crowded.

— At wide receiver, there’s a lot of fluidity at the two outside positions. Redshirt freshman Malcolm Epps received most of the first-team reps at X, but sophomore Brennan Eagles and freshman Bru McCoy can also play the position. McCoy can play Y and H, too, with Eagles capable of playing both outside positions. Compared to the slot, those outside positions feature a lot of competition.

— The backups at the defensive end positions are pretty interchangeable, with junior Marqez Bimage, redshirt freshman Moro Ojomo, and senior Jamari Chisholm in the top group. Junior college transfer Jacoby Jones probably isn’t too far behind after flashing in the Orange-White game. Ojomo and Chisholm also received repetitions at nose tackle.

— Sophomore linebacker Caleb Johnson could challenge redshirt freshman Ayodele Adeoye in the middle, but right after missing much of the spring, Johnson appears significantly behind Adeoye.

— Sophomores Jalen Green, Anthony Cook, and D’Shawn Jamison have seemingly created some separation from sophomore Kobe Boyce at cornerback. Cook dealt with a hamstring injury and missed the Orange-White game, but he’s almost certainly a starter at one of the open cornerback positions.

— The kickoff returners are the most speculative position because Texas didn’t kick the ball off during the Orange-White game. Jamison and freshman Jordan Whittington may be in the mix there, too, in addition to punt return.
