The Fighting Illini have released their Week 3 depth chart in advance of Saturday's contest against North Carolina. Although there was zero movement amongst the starters, the two-deep did see a few changes since the Western Illinois game.

On offense, Ke'Shawn Vaughn has been listed as the backup running back over Henry Enyenihi; Chris O'Connor is now listed as the second string left guard and center because Nick Allegretti has been moved to defense for time being. The only defensive adjustment is at strong safety, where Darwyn Kelly is now the backup behind Taylor Barton.
