The Notre Dame depth chart has stability at quarterback with Ian Book returning, but how does the rest of the depth chart look heading into spring football?

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish made their first appearance in the College Football Playoff in 2018. However, another rough postseason loss to a powerhouse like Clemson just continued to further the notion that the Irish can’t keep up with the best of the best. That narrative is something I’m sure Brian Kelly and his players would love to put to rest starting in 2019.

They have a plethora of holes to fill on both sides of the ball as many of their leaders have moved on to play on Sundays. They still have plenty of talent in critical areas and should find themselves battling for a top four spot again this fall.

ESPN’s FPI Index ranked them as their preseason number seven team in the country, so clearly, there is still plenty of faith that the Irish are here to stay.

Spring ball begins for Notre Dame in less than a week, so let’s take a look at the Fighting Irish depth chart and what position groups are strong and which could be weaknesses.
