Denver Broncos Announce Depth Chart

At least as of August 3rd, 2008 at least.

You can click the above image to expand it. A couple notes for those that may need them, however if you've been keeping up with my training camp updates you shouldn't be surprised by anything on the list:
  • Rookie wide receiver Eddie Royal is the backup for Brandon Marshall (who may or may not be suspended by game 1).
  • Darrell Jackson is the number two wide out, while Keary Colbert is third on the depth chart.
  • Marlon McCree is the starting free safety, while Hamza Abdullah is the starting strong safety.
  • Rookie corner back Jack Williams is a third stringer.
  • Chris Kuper is listed as the starting right guard, while Montrae Holland is listed as the number two, despite not participating in training camp actively as a guard. Rookie Mitch Erickson is listed as the third-stringer.
  • Rookie running back Ryan Torain is listed as the third string running back.
  • Ryan Harris is listed as the starting right tackle, with rookie Tyler Polumbus listed as his backup.

Head coach Mike Shanahan had the following to say in regards to the depth chart:
"You have to put a depth chart out before the first exhibition game," Shanahan said. "I think we all know there are a number of positions that are very close, but you have to put someone down at first team and second team — even though you really don't know. It's that close."
