The Denver Broncos have released their initial depth chart ahead of the Hall of Fame game against the Falcons. Vic Fangio says to not put much into it.
As we inch closer to the first preseason game of the 2019 season, it is key to know how the positional battles for the Denver Broncos are going. There are quite a bit of battles going on in the early stages. But none that are of too much surprise.
The Denver Broncos released the initial depth chart ahead of the Thursday night Hall of Fame game against the Atlanta Falcons. While there is not a lot to dissect about the depth chart, the main focus is on the players who are behind the starters.
That normally indicates who is winning in camp right now. However, Vic Fangio says that fans should not put a lot of thought into where each player is on the depth chart at this time.
“I’ll be honest with you. I would not read it at all. They come into me and ask me to put this depth chart together. I gave it to the coaches.Just put it there. You guys know who has been working with the ones. Anything after that is a free for all. And if you put any stock into it, you are mistaken.”
Fangio does bring up a good point. He virtually says anyone other than the starters are battling for a spot on the final roster. Wording that in the manner he did should allow the other Broncos players fight just as hard as they have.
Regarding the depth chart, I do believe there is no reason to fret about it at this time. We are just under two weeks into training camp. Not to mention this is the first preseason game. There are four more games to go after Thursday. I would not focus too much into the depth chart until prior to the preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams at this point.
Thursday will allow us a chance to see what the non first team players are capable of. Hopefully they can showcase that they can step up at any time, if they make the final roster.
