Rutgers Football Depth Chart Week 6 v. Michigan

NCAA Football: New Mexico at Rutgers Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Week 6 is upon us and there are no changes to the depth chart for Rutgers heading into Saturday against #4 Michigan.

The only good news to come from Saturday’s loss at Ohio State is that Rutgers escaped the game relatively healthy. They face another tall task this weekend, before facing a much more manageable schedule during the second half of the season. Here is a full review of the current depth chart with a few notes.


QB: Chris Laviano / Gio Rescigno OR Zach Allen

RB: Robert Martin / Josh Hicks OR Justin Goodwin

TE: Nick Arcidiacono / Matt Flanagan

WR: Jawuan Harris / John Tsimis

WR: John Tsimis / Vance Matthews

WR: Andre Patton / Carlton Agudosi

LT: Tariq Cole / Zack Heeman

LG: Dorian Miller / Zach Venesky

C: Derrick Nelson / Jonah Jackson

RG: Chris Muller / Marcus Applefield

RT: J.J. Denman / Kamaal Seymour

Notes: Jawuan Harris was the only Rutgers player to register a catch against Ohio State, finishing with 3 receptions for 33 yards....Chris Laviano is still the starter at quarterback, with Zach Allen and Gio Rescigno listed as co-backups for the sixth straight week. However, true freshman Tylin Oden is the only quarterback to play the past two weeks aside from Laviano.


DE: Darnell Davis / Jimmy Hogan OR Ron’Dell Carter

NT: Sebastian Joseph / Kevin Wilkins

DT: Darius Hamilton / Jon Bateky

DE: Julian Pinnix-Odrick /Myles Nash

WLB: Trevor Morris / Eric Margolis

MLB: Deonte Roberts / Kevin Marquez

SLB: Greg Jones / Ronnie James OR Tyreek Maddox-Williams

CB: Isaiah Wharton / Ross Douglas

FS: Kiy Hester / K.J. Gray

SS: Anthony Cioffi / Lawrence Stevens

CB: Blessuan Austin / Damon Hayes

Notes: True freshman Tyreek Maddox-Williams replaced linebacker Greg Jones when he left the Ohio State game injured, and he ended up leading the defense with an impressive 11 tackles....Kiy Hester also registed double digit tackles against the Buckeyes and continues to improve.


K: David Bonagura / Jared Smolar

P: Michael Cintron / Tim Gleeson

LS: Alan Lucy / Matthew Sportelli

Notes: With Grant out, Josh Hicks was the the primary kick returner against Ohio State and did not have a strong game. He only had 77 return yards on 6 attempts and was part of the reason Rutgers had bad starting field position most of the game. Even so, Ash indicated he will be the primary returner for now. Ohio State never punted, so perhaps Jawuan Harris will continue to field punts like he did for the remainder of the Iowa game.
