      Paxton Lynch listed as number 2
      Jeff Heuerman with the first team?
      Devonte Booker with the first team!
      Isaiah Mackenzie listed as first punt returner in an attempt to keep him on the roster?

      Come on guys you need to be honest with yourselves already! Tell me this is not the most John Elway influential dept chart thus far!

      Does this guy/Elway think the rest of the football community is stupid?

        Why would Elway prefer certain players he drafted over other players he drafted? I don't understand what you're trying to say here.

        Looks to me that they simply put the most experienced players first at the positions where there isn't a clear cut starter.

          I'm pretty certain vets usually take the starter title on the first depth chart. It's really only after preseason or regular season games that the rookies pass up the vets. I'm sure the coaches want to see these players in live games before they make that sort of decision.

              That's the way I look at it too.

                The thing I'm most excited about is 6 of the 10 draft picks earning first or second string honors. Could this finally be the above average draft Elway has been missing?

                And I don't agree with Sam Z that it's somehow Elway influenced. What do you want VJ to do? Say no Elway I refuse to play any of your draft picks and we'll go with the walk ons? Yeah that'll keep your job.

                I'm not too shocked on any of the depth chart. The only spot I would agree with Sam Z on is Mackenzie hasn't earned the right to be named punt returning starter just because he's in year 2. If they are comfortable with Lindsay as Kick returner why not let him have a go at Punt returner too?

                But it's also week one preseason. It doesn't really matter what the depth chart looks like this week.

                    Settle down, we haven’t even played a preseason game yet.
                    Make the young guys work for it. No need to put them atop the first meaningless depth chart.

                        You are right, it’s the first dept chart for the first game of preseason but if I see this same depth chart after game 3 of the preseason then I’ll reincarnate my statement!

                        I’m just sick and tired of the failed experiments with Lynch, Heuerman and Mackenzie.

                          Chad Kelly is still working his way back from an IR season from a brutal college injury. Jake Butt is still working his way back from an IR season from a brutal college injury. Seems like third string and second string respectively is a fair place to list both until they make it through a healthy camp and prove they deserve to move up.

                          But as I said before I agree with you on Mackenzie. That one is a head scratcher.

                            I don't see how this depth chart could surprise anyone.

                            Paxton Lynch has been with the 2's the whole offseason, no reps for Kelly there.
                            Heuerman has been running with the 1's before dealing with knee soreness, and he's our #1 in-line TE.
                            Booker and Freeman have been sharing the first reps with the 1's during team period, and Booker has more experience in pass protection.
                            McKenzie is listed as the punt returner, but he's buried on the WRs depth chart. His roster spot does not look to be safe at all. Only preseason will tell who can really secure the ball and earn the punt returner job.

                              Seems a little early in the year for the Elway conspiracy theories to start. I think Joseph summed up the first depth chart of the year best when he said it was meaningless and the only reason they released one was because the NFL mandates it. Interestingly he also said Jordan Taylor would be the top PR but he's injured. So it might be early to read anything into it.
