Packers 2014 Projected Depth Chart: Preseason, Week 1

New, comments

We take our best guess at the Depth Chart the Packers will use on Saturday in their first preseason game.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The preseason, especially the first game, is all about player evaluation. For the Green Bay Packers, it is unlikely that the offensive starters will play more than a series or two in Saturday's preseason opener against the Tennessee Titans, and as such we are curious to see the personnel groupings that the team uses after the starters are pulled.

Therefore, Jason and I have taken our best guess at the team's current depth chart, using reports from training camp and the Packers' published (albeit highly unofficial) depth chart from earlier this week. For full units like the lines and linebackers, this is not intended to show who would necessarily fill in at each individual position if a player were to get injured (for example, Derek Sherrod would likely be the first man in at both tackle spots), but rather which full unit will come on when the starters leave.
