NFL: Washington Redskins-Training Camp Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

With the Redskins’ first preseason matchup against the Patriots just three days away, the team has released their first unofficial depth chart, offering a glimpse into whose fate has risen and fallen through the first few weeks of training camp.

Given the NFL’s recent change allowing for teams to keep 90 players on the camp roster for the duration of the offseason, it’s still a long-shot to say that these are definitive indicators of who makes the final 53, let alone who plays on the first offensive and defensive series in week 1. However, there are some notable names on both sides of the ball who jump out from this preliminary listing released by the team.

There's really no intrigue at QB this year unless you really think Kevin Hogan is going to take newly-extended Colt McCoy's spot as backup QB. The Redskins aren't keeping 3 QBs this year.

Derrius Guice is waaaaaay down the depth chart but he is a Stone Cold Lock of the Week of the Century to be the Redskins feature back this year. He is a stud and this little motivational snub by an intern will only make him hungrier for the seasion to start.

A FB? Yes there's a FB listed on this unofficial first depth chart. Don't expect this on the final depth chart.

Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson, and Jamison Crowder are your top 3 WRs. Brian Quick, Maurice Harris, and Trey Quinn have been having great camps. Where does that leave Robert Davis and the handful of UDFAs who are fighting for a roster spot?

QB: Alex Smith, Colt McCoy, Kevin Hogan

RB: Rob Kelley, Chris Thompson/Kapri Bibbs, Samaje Perine/Byron Marshall, Derrius Guice/Martez Carter

On the defensive front seven, Jonathan Allen, Daron Payne, and Matt Ioannidis are the 1st team. Rookie Tim Settle gets the nod over oft-injured Phil Taylor.

Mason Foster and Zach Brown are your starters at ILB. Zach Vigil gets the nod over camp favorite Josh Harvey-Clemons here.

Orlando Scandrick has a firm hold on his roster spot and has been used opposite Josh Norman, and in the slot throughout camp. Quinton Dunbar signed a new deal this year and will look to make up for the loss of Bashaud Breeland and Kendall Fuller as a top CB on the team.

Montae Nicholson and DJ Swearinger have their positions switched in this depth chart, but the depth is right.
