On the first depth chart, DJ Fluker is listed as the starting right tackle and Johnnie Troutman is listed as the starting right guard. By Thursday, I could see Fluker listed as the starting guard over Troutman and Joe Barksdale sliding into the starting lineup at right tackle.

The team already has been making this transition for the last week and they will see how it looks in the first game of training camp. We will see how Fluker looks in live action. Will he live up to the challenge.

The team is looking to make the transition at the spot and Fluker will get his first opportunity to show his worth at the position on Thursday. By the end of preseason, he will likely be listed as the starting right guard and Johnnie Troutman could be fighting for a roster spot.
