The KC Chiefs initial training camp depth chart came out last night and there aren't nearly as many surprises as we had with depth charts under Todd Haley. Here's the complete Chiefs depth chart to check out.
I've rounded up four surprises on the Chiefs offensive depth chart -- some a big surprise, some not so big. We'll start with perhaps the most important offensive player...
1. Jamaal Charles is on the first team. We shouldn't even have to say this but we will because Haley listed Charles as the No. 2 back during his tenure. Charles is where he deserves to be -- No. 1 on the depth chart.
2. Josh Bellamy is third on the receiver depth chart, behind Steve Breaston and Dexter McCluster. Ahead of Devon Wylie, a fourth round pick. Ahead of Zeke Markshausen, who has experience at Chiefs training camp. So he's my new pick to make it out of the undrafted free agents.
3. Kevin Boss is the No. 1 tight end with Tony Moeaki behind him. Not a major surprise, I suppose. Moeaki is returning to the team this year, Boss is the new guy, so I figured Moeaki may sit atop the depth chart. Apparently not.
4. Brady Quinn is the No. 2 quarterback; Ricky Stanzi is the No. 3 quarterback. This is still a competition and could change during the preseason. I didn't see a noticeably-better Quinn when I was at camp. This is fluid.
If you're looking to compare these depth charts, here's a link to last year's weekly depth charts:
