Depth Chart Released

Posted Aug 6, 2012

On Monday, the team released its first depth chart of the preseason in advance of Thursday's game in Chicago.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- On Monday, the Broncos released their first official depth chart of the preseason.

Of note is the fact that only one rookie and one first-year player are currently within the top two players at their respective positions -- offensive lineman Adam Grant and defensive lineman Derek Wolfe.

There are a few notable position updates as well -- Wolfe is listed as a defensive end as opposed to a defensive tackle, Ben Garland is lined up as a defensive tackle as opposed to a defensive end, and Grant and Tony Hills, both of whom were previously listed as tackles, are on the depth chart as guards.

Without further ado, here's a breakdown of the offensive and defensive lineups for this Thursday's game in Chicago.

Peyton Manning is the first-team quarterback, with Caleb Hanie listed as the No. 2.

Willis McGahee is the starting running back, with Lance Ball his backup.

Chris Gronkowski has the starting fullback role ahead of Austin Sylvester.

At wide receiver, Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker are listed as the starters. Behind them are Matthew Willis and Andre Caldwell.

Last year's starting offensive line remains intact. From left to right, it's Ryan Clady, Zane Beadles, J.D. Walton, Chris Kuper and Orlando Franklin. Behind them, respectively, are Chris Clark, Grant, C.J. Davis, Manny Ramirez and Ryan Harris.

On defense, the first team has Jason Hunter, Ty Warren, Justin Bannan and Elvis Dumervil along the line. At linebacker Von Miller, Joe Mays and D.J. Williams are listed as the starters. Champ Bailey, Tracy Porter, Quinton Carter and Rahim Moore round out the unit in the secondary.

Currently the twos along the defensive line are Wolfe, Kevin Vickerson, Mitch Unrein and Robert Ayers. At linebacker, it's Nate Irving, Mike Mohamed and Wesley Woodyard. Chris Harris and Drayton Florence are next in line at cornerback, and Mike Adams and Rafael Bush are listed as the backup safeties.

As for special teams, the specialists remain the same -- Matt Prater at kicker, Britton Colquitt at punter and Lonie Paxton at long snapper.

Currently, Decker is listed as the team's first-team punt returner and Ball is the kickoff return man.
