Find the Kansas City Chiefs first 2014 depth chart here.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

In preparation for their first preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, the Kansas City Chiefs have released their very first 2014 depth chart. Finally, we have some clarity on where players stand on the depth chart. It's still early enough in training camp that we can't put a ton of stock in this.

"As I've said before," Reid said Saturday, "Dorsey has 51 percent [of the say on the roster]. All the coaches, we want them to stand up for the guys they believe in. At the end of the day it's a joint effort and Dorsey has 51 percent of it."

For the first time this year, your 2014 Chiefs depth chart ...
