ND Depth Chart In Full ... Aldridge On The Move?

Aldridge

Notre Dame released its depth chart to coincide with the start of spring football Friday but one thing is missing ... fifth-year seniors.

The fifth-year senior process hasn't been completed, so the Irish couldn't list the fifth years at their positions. When we give you the depth chart below, Insights will mark off where probable fifth years will fill in bolded. Players who are limited will be in italics

One other thing not noted on the depth chart but mentioned by Charlie Weis is that James Aldridge could eventually move to fullback in some sets and it is something they've already discussed.
