KC Chiefs: First Unofficial Depth Chart Released For 2015 Season

Preseason football kicked off last Sunday, but the KC Chiefs will see their first action on Saturday night against the Arizona Cardinals.

The first unofficial depth chart is out for the Kansas City Chiefs and not too many surprises were revealed.

Offensive Starters

Nothing too surprising from the offensive side of the ball. Obviously Smith, Charles, Maclin, and Kelce are starting. Jason Avant is the backup to Maclin with De’Anthony Thomas serving as Wilson’s backup. Sixth round pick James O’Shaughnessey is currently the second string tight end.

Aaron Murray got the edge over Tyler Bray for the third quarterback spot and you have to begin to wonder how much longer the Chiefs will keep Bray on the team. Four quarterbacks usually gets dwindled to three at some course during the preseason.

The offensive line seemed to one of the biggest storylines headed into 2015 after how bad last year’s was. Stephenson has seemingly won back the coaches’ trust and is the starter at right tackle. Zach Fulton, after starting his entire rookie season at right guard, is now the backup behind Jeff Allen. The center position could be one that rotates between Kush and rookie Mitch Morse, but I wasn’t surprised to see Kush get the nod at starter there.

Defensive Starters

Obviously the one that stands out here is no Dontari Poe. Poe had back surgery and will miss several weeks as a result. Jaye Howard should be able to do a decent job in the spot until Poe returns.

The other area that stands out is that Eric Berry is not starting at safety. He instead will serve as the backup to Abdullah.

Special Teams

These aren’t too interesting by any means. Maclin is the second punt returner after Thomas and rookie Chris Conley is listed behind Davis at kick returner.

Overall, not too many surprises as far as the starters go for the KC Chiefs and it’ll be interesting to see if anything changes after the first preseason game this weekend.
