Travis Kelce ahead of Tony Moeaki: Anthony Fasano is the No. 1 tight end as expected. With a four-year deal and lots of money, I don't think anyone is surprised by that. It's the No. 2 spot where it gets interesting. Travis Kelce, the rookie, is ahead of Tony Moeaki, who is on the third string. My depth chart, which I try to create based on the reps each player gets, would have had Moeaki ahead of Kelce. After seeing camp, I'm less concerned about first, second or third string with the tight ends. All three of them have been not only seeing first team action but lots of targets from the quarterbacks. An important position can't have enough good players.
This is the only notable surprise to me. A few mildly interesting surprises are below.
Position battles as expected
Fullback: Not surprised that Anthony Sherman is on the first team. He has been through most of camp. Braden Wilson comes ahead of Toben Opurum, which is mildly interesting given that Wilson missed a little time with an injury.
Kick returner: We knew Dexter McCluster was the top punt returner. But he is also listed No. 1 at kick returner. This is a position that will see a lot of change with opportunities in the preseason.
Eight mildly interesting things
1. Geoff Schwartz is listed as a right tackle. He can also play either guard spot.
3. Sucks getting a concussion. Tommie Draheim, who suffered a concussion earlier in the week, is fourth on the depth chart at guard.
5. Zac Diles listed behind Derrick Johnson at right inside linebacker.
Here's the whole depth chart:
P: Dustin Colquitt, Ryan Succop
K: Ryan Succop, Dustin Colquitt
KO: Ryan Succop, Dustin Colquitt
H: Dustin Colquitt, Chase Daniel
PR: Dexter McCluster, Devon Wylie
KR: Dexter McCluster, Devon Wylie
