Notes
-I figure Leonard will be in the mix at running back as well, but simply didn't put him on the depth chart twice.
-I think Pace's back-up @ LT will be Barron, and should Barron have to move over to LT, Greco fills in @ RT.
-I listed Glover as a starter but I think there will be a strong three-man rotation between Carriker and Ryan that will keep Glover limited to a small number of snaps. Wouldn't be surprised if by the midpoint of the season Carriker and Ryan are starting next to each other, but for now I kept the starting duo from last season.
-Right now I give the edge to Culberson @ SLB, not only because the staff really seems to be high on him but also because I think they like Draft's versatility as a back-up.
-Todd Johnson probably belongs on the depth chart @ SS but I put him behind Atogwe just for balance.

My starting line-up is exactly the same as NGSeiler's. I agree on all your notes as well. If Pace gets hurt again Barron will switch over to LT and Greco will step in on the right side. I am talking about a serious injury for Pace, meaning missing games not snaps. If Pace is out for a few plays I think Greco will just go in, but if it's for games then Barron is going to LT. I hope that Quinton Culberson wins the spot over Chris Draft, and I think he will. Culberson is a young guy with potential, while Draft provides depth at every LB spot. I am also expecting a heavy DT rotation. We are hearing good things about Wroten, so he may factor into it as well, but at the very least a 3 man rotation will be used. I think the best position battles will be for C and SLB. From a few things I have seen and read, I get the vibe that the coaches would like for Setterstrom to win the battle for the C spot over Romberg because he is younger and has a much higher ceiling as a player. I am quite comfortable with our O-line no matter who wins what spots. Unless they suffer an unreal rash of injuries on the line like last season, they have solid depth all across the line.

- Can Clifton Ryan play UT? If so I think he should be the starter there.

If he becomes a starter, it'll be at NT, allowing Carriker to start at UT where he's better fit.

Yea I think that's what the Rams will do. I don't think Glover will start, I've been hearing all offseason that the Rams want to limit Glover's playing time to around 20-25 snaps per game.
