My Depth Chart: Week 2 Preaseaon


Here is my depth chart, after watching a huge sample….. one preseason game.

I will add notes behind certain names, as I deem necessary. You can fill in the blanks. In fact, please do so in the comments section.


Quaterbacks: Philip Rivers, and Diamond Brad Sorensen! Nuff said.

Running Backs & Fullbacks: Ryan Mathews, Ronnie Brown, Danny Woodhead, Le’Ron McClain (MAYBE replace McClain with Gronkowski. But, McClain subbed as a very productive running back for the Ravens with 10 TD’s).

Receivers: Malcolm Floyd, Eddie Royal, Vincent Brown, Keenan Allen, Uggghhhh Robert Meachem, Dan DePalma (because he returns punts, and Willie didn’t impress me so much)

Tight Ends: Antonio Gates, John “catch & block” Phillips, Ladarius Green

Left Tackles: King Dunlap, Max Starks

Left Guards: Chad Rinehart, Johnny “two times” Troutman (because he likes to get two penalties).

Centers: Nick Hardwick, David Molk

Right Guards: Jeromey Clary, Rich Ohrnberger

Right Tackles: DJ Fluker


Right Defensive Ends: Corey Liuget, Damik Scafe (?)

Defensive Tackles: Cam Thomas, Kwame Geathers

Left Defensive Ends: Kendall Reyes, Jarius Wynn (?)

Outside Linebackers: Dwight Freeney, Tourek Williams

Inside Linebackers: Manti Te’O, Bront Bird

Inside linebackers: Donald Butler, Andrew Gachkar (?), DJ Smith

Outside Linebackers: Jarret Johnson, Larry English

Right Cornerbacks: Shareece Wright, Johnny Patrick

Left Cornerbacks: Derek Cox, Steve Williams

Strong Safeties: Marcus Gilchrist, Darrell Stuckey, Brandon Taylor

Free Safeties: Eric Weddle, Sean Cattouse

Special Teams: Nick Novak, Mike Scifres, Mike Windt

Practice squad (Totally Guessing): Jahleel Addae, Marcus Cromartie, Fozzy Whittaker, Mike Willie, Luke Tasker, Byron Jerideau, Nick Becton, Frank Beltre

Honestly, I think you are already looking at your team, pretty much. That’s 51 on a 53 man roster. I would keep the offense the way it is. I would sign the following on defense.

We need ONE more CB.. whether it’s from the roster, or the open market. Gilchrist will play strong safety until Taylor gets back, but Stuckey could get the job done at SS if a CB went down, and Gilly had to move back to CB. Plus Stuckey is a special teams Captain, and our special teams looked awful. Let’s keep Stuckey, and anything Rich Bisaccia taught him.

RDE / LDE are an issue. I would sign one versatile DE, even if it meant cutting Gachkar. We need good depth.

Maybe an OLB (to make up for JJ’s lack of pass rush).

Please voice your thoughts below in the comments section. I am curious to see what you all think can be done to strengthen this team! Of course, this might all be hogwash after the second preseason game… but, I am basing this off of what I saw on Thursday.

Keep Bolting Toward Excellence!
