Oregon head football coach Mark Helfrich released the two-deep depth chart for week one against Nicholls State on Monday, still leaving a couple positions unanswered.

Second string quarterback is an “or” position, with redshirt freshmen Jeff Lockie and Jake Rodrigues sharing the position on the depth chart as of Monday.

“We haven’t discussed that,” Helfrich said regarding the amount of paying time each quarterback will see. Helfrich then confirmed that Lockie has the upper hand for week one. “Yes, if that situation arises, [Lockie] would be the second guy in the game right now.”

Helfrich also said the tight end depth chart is a work in progress, but freshman Johnny Mundt is currently listed second behind junior Colt Lyerla.

“That position is  very much a work in progress,” Helfrich said. “All those guys have their strengths and weaknesses, Colt obviously being the most talented among them, but yeah, along with guard, backup quarterback, all those guys [are in the mix]. The best guy, whoever’s been the best this week will be in there.”

Sophomores Koa Ka’ai and Pharaoh Brown are listed as the third and fourth tight ends, respectively.

Other previously unknown starters are as follows:

Offensive guard: Mana Greig, Hamani Stevens.

Defensive tackle: Arik Armstead.

Defensive end: Tony Washington.

Middle linebacker: Rodney Hardrick.

Weak side linebacker: Derrick Malone.

Kickoff specialist: Matt Wogan.

Wogan and Alejandro Maldonado are both listed at place kicker.
