As the Los Angeles Chargers get set to kick off the preseason Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, the team released the first unofficial depth chart of 2017.
As a reminder, fans shouldn't look too much into the unofficial depth chart as it is merely nothing more than a piece of paper at this point.
"The depth chart doesn't mean much right now," Head Coach Anthony Lynn said. "It's something that we're working through, and we'll keep working through it as we evaluate the guys. There is a lot of competition going on all throughout the roster, so it will keep evolving."
Still, here are some topline items that stand out:
- With Jason Verrett practicing but not listed on the depth chart, second-year cornerback Trevor Williams gets the nod at starting CB.
- The battle to backup Melvin Gordon has been a good one throughout camp, and according to the depth chart Branden Oliver will get first crack at it as he is listed second behind number 28. Andre Williams is third while Kenjon Barner is fourth.
- A pair of undrafted free agent linebackers are listed in the second group in James Onwualu and Nigel Harris.
- Dwight Lowery and Tre Boston have split reps at starting free safety throughout camp, but the incumbent is listed with the starters.
- Dan Feeney is listed twice with the second team at guard and center.
- Russell Okung is the only new addition added this offseason currently listed with the first team.
