This isn’t exactly an article, but I’ve had three or four requests since the draft to publish an updated depth chart so I thought I’d triple check what I’ve got and post it, even though the effort to sign more players is ongoing.
I have checked that every name on my depth chart appears on the team website. The website and my depth chart each have 89 names.
The numbers on the chart next to some players’ names represent the 2021 cap hit. It is only listed for players who have a hit over $1m, and the number for Jamin Davis is estimated.
The color coding used follows this key:
When it doesn’t seem clear who is the starter or the backup, I have generally listed veterans ahead of rookies.
Where a position has two or more slots (ie. DT, DE, WR, CB, RG/LG) I haven’t made any real effort to list the backups behind the starter they are most likely to replace. To some extent, I have just tried to balance the space on the chart.
The changes from the previous iteration of the chart are the addition of DB Chris Miller, whom I have listed at strong safety despite the team announcement that called him a cornerback, and a re-shuffling of the OL based on the news that Morgan Moses is seeking a trade.
