PROVO, Utah – The annual BYU football Media Day is always a mega event for media members to get ready for a season. But it also gives us a pre-season glimpse at the first depth chart heading into a season.

On Thursday, BYU football released their first depth chart of the 2021 season in their annual Media Guide.

BYU has a lot of momentum coming into this season after producing an 11-1 record a year ago and a No. 11 finish in the final AP Top 25 poll. The big question centers around, who will replace Zach Wilson at quarterback.

BYU Football Depth Chart: 2021 Pre-Season

Here’s a look at who sits atop (rather who has an OR next to their name) the depth chart. Keep in mind, BYU football fall camp begins on August 5th, 2021. Then on September 4th, BYU opens the 2021 season in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium home of the Las Vegas Raiders.
