Which Denver Broncos players are plummeting down the depth chart so far at training camp in 2022? We take a look at three names to watch.

Believe it or not, the Denver Broncos only have four training camp practices left before the team’s first preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday.

As the first preseason game approaches, the team is undoubtedly going to release an initial depth chart which is sure to be filled with surprises on both sides of the ball.

With what we know about training camp thus far — reading reports from camp, seeing highlights, and reading the tea leaves of what has been said to the media — can we definitively say any players have taken a fall down the depth chart?

Nothing is definitive at this time of year, to be sure.

But some players have seemingly ascended through the first 10 practices of camp while others haven’t really made a lot of noise.

Let’s take a look at three players that could be tumbling down the depth chart compared to where they were last year or where they were projected to be in 2022.

Denver Broncos depth chart: Graham Glasgow, OG

The Denver Broncos restructured Graham Glasgow’s contract early on in the 2022 offseason to make sure they had him around in some capacity this season.

The Broncos had signed Glasgow to a big-money contract back in the 2020 offseason and he was expected to replace the unfortunately oft-injured Ron Leary at the right guard position for the long term.

Unfortunately, Glasgow has been limited by injuries himself, including a really unfortunate and scary season-ending injury last year against the Dallas Cowboys.

The fact that Glasgow didn’t start off training camp on the PUP is fantastic news, but where is he going to be factoring in on the depth chart?

To this point in training camp, we haven’t heard anything really about him rotating in with Dalton Risner, Quinn Meinerz, and Netane Muti, who have been taking snaps with the top offensive unit throughout camp.

Even though there are some restrictions on reporting as far as which players are working with which units, there hasn’t been much regarding Glasgow working in with the starting offensive line.

Is that because the Broncos are still working him back to full strength or are they going to have him on hand as interior offensive line depth this year?

As of right now, it appears to be the latter, but we’ll see soon enough.
