We have a depth chart! The Kansas City Chiefs have released their first unofficial depth chart ahead of the first preseason game next weekend against the Arizona Cardinals. Andy Reid will emphasize that this is all unofficial and he only fills it out because the league makes him. But still, there's something we can learn from it.
There are no shockers on this but a few things are worth noting:
The injured players are listed at the bottom of the depth chart, including Dontari Poe, Demetrius Harris and Chris Conley. There's not much we can learn from where they're slotted. Jaye Howard is at nose tackle in place of Poe.
Albert Wilson is the No. 2 receiver behind Jeremy Maclin. The momentum for this spot was totally different during the spring when Wilson was hurt during OTAs and Conley was having a really good offseason. Now it's switched - Wilson is playing while Conley is hurt.
Rookie James O'Shaughnessy is listed as the second tight end. Demetrius Harris is injured but I was curious where Harris would be if he were healthy. Above or below O'Shaughnessy?
Paul Fanaika. Three years, $8.1 million. Third team guard. Yikes.
Eric Kush is the first center. Then Mitch Morse. Just like training camp practice.
Marcus Peters is the second corner behind Phillip Gaines. The question is how they'll get Peters, Gaines and Sean Smith on the field together. I'm guessing Gaines flips to the slot in that case.
L'Damian Washington has been here for just a few days and he's already ahead of UDFA Kenny Cook. Interesting.
There was no leader in the long snapper battle two days ago but they need to put someone there. James Winchester is listed ahead of Andrew East.
