The Panthers are a week away from their season opener at Tulane. Here’s how I think the depth chart may look when it’s released next week.

Training camp concluded for the 2019 FIU football team over the weekend with the team having it’s final scrimmage, now the attention turns towards opening night in New Orleans where the Panthers will face Tulane.

Butch Davis’ team returns 17 starters from last seasons team and a litany of players who saw valuable time.

With the official depth chart will be released early next week, here’s my projected depth chart for FIU heading into the season.

While this is a projected depth chart, expect a nine player rotation across the offensive and defensive lines, along with additional players seeing time at linebacker in the secondary.

Backups who aren’t listed on the two-deep will still see significant time.
