Denver Broncos Release First Depth Chart of 2017
Depth Chart day is here. The Denver Broncos have released their first depth chart of 2017. Who starts at quarterback and other questions might be answered.
The Denver Broncos will be starting their preseason slate on Thursday. The team travels to Chicago to take on the Bears. Fans are curious to see where the team stands twelve days after training camp opened.
Well, the waiting is finally over. The Broncos depth chart was released Monday morning. The team practiced indoors due to bad weather. But onto the depth chart.
Who will start at quarterback? Who is leading in the positions race at running back, offensive line, and other spots.
Here is the depth chart list below.
The biggest question is going to be at quarterback. There is a big “Or” in between Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch’s names. This means that the quarterback battle is still on.
We will know in the next day or two who will be the starter in Chicago from Vance Joseph. The performance from both quarterbacks in the two preseason games could determine who the starter is.
Some of my surprises of the depth chart include Cody Latimer at kick returner. We know that Latimer is battling for a roster spot. His special teams contributions could earn him a spot.
Jared Crick starts on the first team over Zach Kerr. This could be due to his knowledge of the defense. I would not be surprised if Kerr makes some plays and becomes a starter.
Next: Garett Bolles is Named Starter at Left Tackle
As I wrote about earlier, Garett Bolles is the starting left tackle. I believe he holds onto that spot. Isaiah McKenzie has been named the punt returner. No surprise there as McKenzie has performed very well.
It will be interesting to see how these battles take place during the preseason game on Thursday. Keep an eye out fans. This is going to be a fun ride.
