Believe it or not, training camp is right around the corner for SU Football.

Syracuse’s leaders for the upcoming 2014 season were at the ACC Football Kickoff on Sunday in Greensboro, NC. Senior standouts OT Sean Hickey and LB Cameron Lynch represented the Orange.

The kickoff event means pre-training camp depth charts have been released on behalf of the program. As the Orange prepares to make strides in its 2nd year as a member of the ACC Conference, here’s how Scott Shafer has things lined up for now, offensively and defensively.


Some immediate takeaways and surprises:

Adonis Ameen-Moore listed as #2 running back

Ameen-Moore had just five attempts on the ground last season for Syracuse. George McDonald utilized George Morris II and Devante McFarlane a whole lot more last season. Perhaps The Mailman is trusting seniority over upside. Recall Adonis missed the 2012 Pinstripe Bowl due to ineligibility. It stands out he’s getting more opportunities early on because clearly the staff thinks he can bring more to the table than just being used in key situations such as the tank package.

 A trio of freshman can make an early impact

Juwan Dowels, Antwon Cordy and Cordell Hudson are each inside the top three for both cornerback slots. All three players provide outstanding speed. Cordy runs a 4.5 40-yard dash, and Dowels and Hudson add to SU’s traditional upbringing of Florida defensive backs. Look for these three guys early on to impress and see playing time.

Omar Palmer jumps ahead of veteran Rob Trudo

The 6’2”, 316 lb. diesel Palmer weighs 24 pounds more than redshirt junior Trudo. Rob started all thirteen games last season for Syracuse at left guard. Sort of a surprise, but Palmer has tremendous upside. Palmer, a redshirt sophomore, played in nine games last year and was also a wrestler at Longwood High School (NY). Point being is that he has mental and physical toughness.

Mitch Kimble still backs up Terrel Hunt

This storyline stood out back in March, and it stays the same. Kimble takes on the backup signal-caller duties to Hunt. AJ Long is third, while Austin Wilson sits at four. Let’s not overblow this because Hunt is THE guy next season. A full year under his belt of learning how to start and acclimate his skills to the college game means a big year hopefully for him. However, you have to examine backups because as everybody knows in football, one play can change everything. By that we mean injuries.
