The depth chart remains almost wholly unchanged. The only departure from last week is the removal of wide receiver Ben Hogg. After appearing in Virginia’s first four games, Hogg suffered a season-ending injury before the Duke game.
It’s notable that junior linebacker Malcolm Cook remains unlisted. Cook suffered an injury against UConn and hasn’t played since. Virginia head coach Bronco Mendenhall mentioned that Cook would be out for an intermediate period, but he expects him back this season. Chris Moore, who picked up an interception in UVA’s win over North Carolina, remains the starter at strong side linebacker in Cook’s absence.
Sticking at outside linebacker, it will be interesting to see when true freshman Charles Snowden cracks the depth chart. Snowden had a key sack against Duke and registered an impressive tackle for loss against the Tar Heels. Mendenhall has talked multiple times about the need to accelerate the development of Snowden and his linebacker classmates, Elliott Brown, Matt Gahm, and Zane Zandier.
