Miss State looking for playmakers at WR and DB on spring depth chart

NEW: Follow on facebook -

Mississippi State kicks of spring practice tomorrow, and with it, the Bulldogs are ready to totally restructure their receiving corps and defensive backs.

The first player I notice not listed on the two-deep is DT Quay Evans. Evans was a prized recruit who played sparingly in 2012. You could make an argument that he has the most to gain this spring, and he’s not even listed as the backup to either tackle position.

Likewise, Kaleb Eulls was moved from DE to DT.

The Bulldogs really need for Robert Johnson to emerge as the leader in the receiving corps, and for Jamerson Love to take firm possession of one corner spot.

Here’s the two-deep spring depth chart:
