1st Depth Chart Released

You can find the entire thing here.

No huge surprises, especially since it is so early. Worth noting is that Maurice Stovall has surpassed Michael Clayton as the number two receiver, although I am willing to bet both receivers will see an about equal amount of playing time (barring injury) by the end of the season.

The left side of the line is still in a state of flux. Rookie Arron Sears is listed as the starting left guard even though Anthony Davis initially worked with the first team at the position. Projected starting left tackle Luke Petitgout's nagging injuries make it look likely Davis will receive a majority of the starts at left tackle this season. Which is troubling since Davis' struggles in pass blocking required Gruden to take a receiver off the field the last two seasons to be replaced by an extra blocker, typically a tightend.
