Coach Greg McMackin today announced a revised depth chart. The Warriors will be going with a three-player rotation at defensive end, defensive tackle, cornerback and safety. The three at each position are considered to be starters.
So, entering training camp, the No. 1s are:
Defensive ends: Brashton Satele, Fetaiagogo (John) Fonoti, Elliott Purcell.
Defensive tackles: Tuika Tufaga, Rocky Savaiigaea, Vaughn Meatoga.
Cornerbacks: Tank Hopkins, Jeramy Bryant, Lametrius Davis.
Safeties: Mana Silva, Kenny Estes, Spencer Smith.

The downside of a state holiday, as the Warriors learned yesterday, is the guy with the key to Cooke/Ching field gate has a day off. (The gate also was locked at the grasss practice field.) That meant the players had to scale a 12-foot fence to work out.
Here’s quarterback Corey Nielsen:
Here’s wideout Joe Avery:
And cornerback Jeramy Bryant:

The Warriors have increased to five the number of 7-on-7 unsupervised workouts each week. In previous years, the players would have passing drills four days a week. It appears quarterback Greg Alexander is the organizer of this year’s passing drills.

Happy birthday to Ryan “The Beast” Eastman.
