Depth Chart printout

Forgive me if it's on here and I missed it. But does anyone have a printout I could use for the Single wing depth chart?

Thanks in advance

Use MS Excel.   Works for any scheme. 

Just put the names in same place as where the position plays.   Put backup underneath.

We have levels of play so when we are going through the early practices I keep a spread sheet of kids I may want on left hand side.

The list is usually based on overall ability and value, not position.   So the top athletes that can do any position and do it great would be 1,2,3 - I never really get more than that.    I fill the rest of the kids in according to their value as I see it.   

Next to that list I start filling in kids into the depth chart on where I project them playing.

It changes daily for a few weeks.

It really helps me decide (or in my case strongly recommend) who we take.    Keeps us (theoretically) from taking too many WR types versus too many linemen types and keeps us balanced on need and ability to play certain positions.

If I am doing a draft, I use the same list to draft players I want.    Crossing out players as they get taken off the board by someone else.       

What you have to watch out for is what you are using to evaluate.   Last year our HC worked primarily with the WR's and QB's in early drills.    So I think he was over weighting those kids versus kids who were good linemen, but had hands of stone and a lack of overall coordination.
