Broncos Announce Their First Official Depth Chart, As Muddy As It Is

Here is the official depth chart that is required to be released before the first pre-season game. This was compiled from an article in the Denver Post by Lindsey Jones and also from the Yahoo Sports and CBS Sports websites.

As you can see, it doesn't have a lot of meaning for the upcoming pre-season game in Cincinnati.

For one thing, Ryan Clady will in no way be starting that game at LT. What will likely happen is D'Anthony Batiste will start, with Tyler Polumbus backing him up. Clady is still weeks away from even returning to practice.

The running back positions mean absolutely nothing for this Sunday, as none of the first three listed players are expected to suit up. This leaves Toney Baker, Lance Ball and Bruce Hall fighting for playing time. The signing of Justin Fargas yesterday also adds more fuzziness to an already cloudy RB picture. 

It shows that Doom is not listed on the chart, but there is a good chance he will return before the end of the regular season.

Notice also that we have two rookies listed as starters in Beadles and Walton. This speaks a lot to how high they both were rated by the coaching staff. There will be the requisite rookie mistakes but I do believe that this O-line will come along as the pre-season and the regular season progresses.

Considering all the injuries and uncertainties, it doesn't have much in common with reality, but here goes:
