Inside ND Sports' Notre Dame post-spring depth chart projection

Notre Dame defensive linemen go through drills during spring practice on March 17.

Here's the latest Notre Dame depth chart after spring practice concluded April 23 with the Blue-Gold Game. The projection is based on conversations with head coach Marcus Freeman and his assistants, media viewing windows of practice this spring, and the Blue-Gold Game itself. The depth chart will change as injured players recover and new players arrive in June.

We've included both injured players (at the bottom of the positional depth charts) and June-arriving freshmen and transfers — including key special teams walk-ons — (in italics) to give the readers a sense of numbers at a particular position that they can expect to see in the fall.
