Kenny Anunike’s position on the depth chart

Like Jordan Taylor, I was quite surprised to see Kenny Anunike so low on the depth chart. Players and coaches have had so much praise on the second year undrafted player from Duke University. However, he is stuck as the third option as defensive end behind Malik Jackson and Antonio Smith.

However, I think Kenny Anunike’s position is different than Jordan Taylor’s. I think he will still make the roster due to the shortage of defensive linemen and the suspension to Derek Wolfe. So, I do not think he will be discouraged about being on the third line on the defense.

Kenny Anunike has a big chance to break out this season, especially in the first quarter while Derek Wolfe sits out. Remember that he has been working on moving to the defensive line during the offseason and this will be his big chance to show what he has been working on when the preseason games start up.
