The Denver Broncos have released their first depth chart for the preseason matchup against the Chicago Bears on Thursday. Where does Gary Kubiak see the team at this point of training camp?

The Denver Broncos begin their quest to go back-to-back in 2016. After winning Super Bowl 50, the team is almost all new, mostly on the offensive side of the football. No more Peyton Manning or Brock Osweiler, no Malik Jackson, no Danny Trevathan. Throughout the entire training camp, I have been intrigued how the roster would shape up.

Well, we get our first look at it this Monday Morning.

Gary Kubiak and the Denver Broncos have released their first depth chart for the team. I will be giving the loyal Broncos fans my takes on this first depth chart ahead of the game on Thursday.

For the quarterback position, there is really no surprise. Although I find it odd that the team placed Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian as the co-starters. This shows that Sanchez has not created enough separation between him and Siemian. That speaks a lot of volumes. It will be interesting to see how both players perform in this week’s preseason game.

The quarterback position is not the only position that sees co-starters or co-backups. The backup running back is split between Devontae Booker and Ronnie Hillman. Remember that Hillman missed a bit of camp with an injury. Seems like Booker took opportunity of the chances in front of him.

Also, Ty Sambrailo and Michael Schofield are co-starters at the right guard position. Sambrailo is recovering from injury, so it makes sense. Virgil Green and Jeff Heuerman have been named co-starters at tight end. Wonder if the competition there is just too close to call.

One rookie that is turning heads is full back Andy Janovich. He is listed as the starting full back for the Denver Broncos. This is great to see a late round draft pick making moves already. Then again, the Broncos have been known to have a late round pick have a lot of success.

For the defense, not a whole lot of changes. What intrigues me is that the second team defense looks scary good. No matter who is on the field, that defense should give offenses fits.

For special teams, Britton Colquitt is winning the punting job so far. But I believe we will not know much about that until the preseason games. Jordan Norwood is listed as the kick and punt returner, which does not surprise me a whole lot.

There are my takes on the roster. Keep it here at Predominantly Orange as we keep you updated on all things Denver Broncos before the preseason matchup against the Chicago Bears on Thursday.
