Post-Spring Depth Charts: Offense Defense

Wisconsin released its official 2014 football roster Friday, highlighting some height/weight changes for a number of players, as well as a few omissions.

According to Wisconsin, the following players are no longer with the program:

  • CB Hugs Etienne
  • NG Bryce Gilbert
  • S Nate Hammon
  • P Brett Nethery
  • LB Jake Rademacher
  • TE Alex Walker

Additionally, freshmen wide receivers Chris Jones and Dareian Watkins are not enrolled at summer class at UW.

Per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Jeff Potrykus, Jones has enrolled at Toledo after failing to meet UW academic standards. Watkins is also home in Ohio for personal reasons.

Additionally, Badgernation.com's Benjamin Worgull also reported a few explanations for some of the aforementioned departures.

While the loss of two promising freshmen at wide receiver certainly stings, the Badgers now have a more pressing hole at nose tackle. Warren Herring is coming off a junior season in which he recorded 17 tackles (6.0 for loss) and four sacks in 13 games, but now sophomore Arthur Goldberg is his primary backup. The Mount Lebanon, Pennsylvania, native earned his first letter last year but did not record any statistics.

Losing two defensive backs in Etienne and Hammon naturally hurts as well, though several other players seemed to have eclipsed them on the two-deep during spring.
