3. Duke Blue Devils
Duke Quarterback Depth Chart Contenders (in alphabetical order): Luca Diamont, RFr.; Gunnar Holmberg, Sr.; Jordan Moore, Fr.
Chase Brice was supposed to come in from Clemson and be the star for a few years, but he never saw an interception he didn’t like to throw and now he’s in the mix for the Appalachian State gig.
Gunnar Holberg has been around for forever, but he’s inexperienced and coming off a knee injury. Luca Diamont is inexperienced, but at least he was around the mix last year. Jordan Moore is a true freshman and obviously inexperienced, but he’s got more upside than Holberg and Diamont.
It’s Holberg’s job, and he still has a few years of eligibility, but with the team’s offensive inconsistencies over the last few seasons, there could be a quick hook.
Depth Chart: 1. Holmberg, 2. Diamont, 3. Moore
2. Syracuse Orange
Syracuse Quarterback Depth Chart Contenders (in alphabetical order): Tommy DeVito, Jr.; Justin Lamson, Fr.; JaCobian Morgan, RFr.; Garrett Shrader, Soph.
Tommy DeVito has had no help whatsoever.
The Syracuse offensive line has been a disaster, the running game hasn’t worked, and the team overall has been a mess over the last few seasons. DeVito will have a loose grip on the gig going into the Ohio game, but Shrader – a transfer from Mississippi State – will be right there in the mix.
Depth Chart: 1. DeVito, 2. Shrader, 3. Morgan
1. Florida State Seminoles
Florida State Quarterback Depth Chart Contenders (in alphabetical order): McKenzie Milton, Sr.; Chubba Purdy, RFr.; Jordan Travis, Soph.
Here’s the best guess when it comes to the Florida State quarterback depth chart: all of them.
McKenzie Milton is the odds-on favorite to be the man throughout the opener against Notre Dame, and at the very least he’s the easy rooting interest after returning from a horrific leg injury suffered two years ago at UCF.
Milton was great this spring and looks ready to take command, but Jordan Travis is the more mobile option coming off a decent first season, and Chubby Purdy – the brother of Iowa State’s Brock Purdy – is likely the future one he’s fully healthy from a shoulder injury.
Depth Chart: 1. Milton, 2. Travis, 3. Purdy
