Ames, IA – Iowa State football released a new depth chart this morning and there are two significant changes from the previous depth chart. It appears David Sims is making his mark with the team as he’s in the mix at both saftety and kick/punt returner. Leonard Johnson will no doubt also be on the kick return team after his record setting 2008, but another dangerous weapon could make our special teams, special.
1. David Sims is starting at SS (he was sharing with Michael O’Connell) / Michael O’Connell is now listed as the starter at FS with James Smith backing him up
Our best guess is James Smith is a little dinged up – we should find out more during Coach Rhoads press conference today at 11:30.
2. The KR/PR depth chart is now updated – four names are now listed
Leonard Johnson / Josh Lenz / David Sims / Darius Reynolds
We are guessing Leonard Johnson and Josh Lenz will be back on kickoffs and Josh Lenz will return punts
