Here's where we believe VU's depth chart stands at the end of spring, as of April 9, 2018.

Italics indicates a player who's hurt or has recently missed practice or game time.

If Vanderbilt uses a fullback, redshirt junior Jaire George is the starter, with sophomore walk-on Josh Higgs, the backup.

Tight end Braden Kopp isn't listed on the depth chart, but should see action in jumbo sets as a blocker.

Walk-on Cody Markel will also likely see the field some as an extra tight end or fullback.
