We tracked the Kansas City Chiefs depth chart every week during the season and while it was usually the most boring post of the week I knew it would eventually come in handy. We've got a pretty cool look (I think, anyway) at the Chiefs roster taking a position-by-position comparison of the Week 1 depth chart vs. the Week 17 depth chart.
A few notes on what we found:
There are 27 positions listed (including special teams). 16 of them were the same in Week 17 as they were in Week 1.
Four spots on the offensive line -- left guard, center, right guard, right tackle -- were the same.
Three of the four linebacker spots stayed the same. Justin Houston moved ahead of Andy Studebaker during the season.
The quarterback, running back and safety depth chart comparisons are terrifying. Consider this your warning.
Check it out after the jump. And there's of course the caveat that the depth chart didn't determine actual playing time, and some of these guys missed games so they were replaced at times throughout the season.
Note: First line is entering Week 1. Second line is entering Week 17.
