Last year, when USC Coach Lane Kiffin released a depth chart before the Trojans’ final spring scrimmage, he said, "It really doesn't mean very much" because some returning players were injured and could not be evaluated.

Last week, Kiffin declined to release a depth chart until after Saturday’s final scrimmage, noting, “It doesn’t mean anything.”

The depth chart was finally posted Monday.

Here’s the two-deep heading into fall, when several freshmen are expected to compete for spots (click on thread to see the chart):
