Chargers Release 1st Unofficial Depth Chart of 2023 Season 


The Chargers first unofficial depth chart of 2023 has been released.

The Bolts open preseason play by visiting the Rams on Saturday at SoFi Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. Unofficial depth charts are league-mandated before a team's first preseason game.

For reference, the Chargers offense is listed in "21 personnel" with two backs (a running back and fullback) and a tight end. That leaves two spots at receiver, along with a quarterback and the offensive line.

The Bolts defense, meanwhile, features starters in a nickel scheme, which includes two down linemen, two edge rushers, two inside linebackers, three cornerbacks and two safeties.

Here's a look at the Chargers unofficial depth chart with starters followed by backups listed in order as they appear.
