First Chiefs depth chart released
The Kansas City Chiefs released their first unofficial depth chart of training camp.
As always, there are a few surprises.
Third-round draft pick Kareem Hunt, who has split several first-team repetitions throughout training camp, sits on the third team behind running backs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware.
Justin March-Lillard, who started the first five games last year before an injury, is placed on the third team behind backups Kevin Pierre-Louis and Josh Mauga.
Behind wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley are veterans Albert Wilson and De’Anthony Thomas, meaning Demarcus Robinson, Seantavius Jones, Jehu Chesson and other young wide-outs are deep in the depth chart.
To no surprise, first-round draft pick Patrick Mahomes III is on the third team behind Alex Smith and Tyler Bray.
Steven Nelson currently sits opposite of Marcus Peters as the starting corners. Players who are on the physically-unable-to-perform list are all over the place on the depth chart.
Chris Jones remains the No. 1 left defensive end. Tamba Hali remains as the first pass rusher off the bench. Guard Parker Ehinger and linebacker Dadi Nicolas sit at the bottom of the roster.
With Ehinger out of the starting lineup for now, Bryan Witzmann is getting reps with the No. 1s. That reflects the depth chart.
The Chiefs first preseason game is at 8 p.m. on Friday at Arrowhead Stadium against the San Francisco 49ers.
