The Colorado State University football team has released its depth chart and Anchorage’s Cory Macon is still the man at defensive end.

The 6-foot-6, 231-pound senior started nine of 10 games last season.

All 11 defensive players slated to start for the Rams are juniors and seniors.

“Obviously you want your upperclassmen to have the opportunity to be the guy, because they’ve been there the longest,” offensive coordinator Pat Meyer told the Fort Collins Coloradoan. “But every job, on both sides of the ball, is up for grabs. The upperclassmen have it right now, but those jobs can be taken in fall camp.”

Macon, of East High fame, collected 2½ sacks and made 35 tackles (14 solo), including five for loss, last season.

His junior season was his coming out party as he earned his first career start in a landmark 23-17 win at Colorado and his first career sack in a 24-23 win over Weber State the following week.
