Depth chart: Eastern Michigan

No super surprises. Sophomore George Jordan has replaced junior Austin Barr as a starting wide receiver. Jordan, who missed spring practice to focus on academics, has really picked it up the last two weeks of practice. He has a good rapport with sophomore starting quarterback Trent Steelman. The two worked together the summer before their freshman year.

Sophomore Josh Jackson should start at one cornerback in place of two-year starter Antuan Aaron, who has missed the preseason with a leg injury. Jackson showed flashes in the beginning of 2009. He had an interception in the season opener against Eastern Michigan and was quiet after that. Maybe, plebe year caught up with him. I think senior L.B. Brown will rotate in, keeping Army corner fresh. If senior safety Jordan Trimble doesn’t start ahead of senior Donnie Dixon, he will be Army’s nickel back.

Jackson is one of Army’s fastest players with the ball. That’s why he’s also listed as the team’s primary punt returner over junior Josh Jones, who held the duties last season.

Junior linebacker Andrew Rodriguez isn’t listed on the two-deep. Rodriguez has yet to practice fully because of a back injury.

Heading to practice in a few. Will have a blog report later.
