Packers 2015 depth chart 8/18: Randall Cobb has a new job

Meet the new depth chart. Same as the old depth chart.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Another week, another depth chart.

The Green Bay Packers released their second unofficial depth chart Tuesday in advance of their preseason tilt with the Pittsburgh Steelers. As with the team's first official depth chart, the order of players should be taken with a grain of salt. By and large, this chart remains the same despite the players' performances during training camp and the first exhibition game.

QB Aaron Rodgers Scott Tolzien Matt Blanchard Brett Hundley
RB Eddie Lacy James Starks Rajion Neal Alonzo Harris, John Crockett
FB John Kuhn Aaron Ripkowski

If this depth chart looks familiar to you, that's because nothing has really changed since last week. The Packers added a third-string tier to the chart to further distinguish the back of the roster, but the order of the offensive players remains the same. Keep in mind that this doesn't necessarily mean much, as the team listed Brett Hundley as the fourth quarterback even though he went in ahead of Matt Blanchard during the preseason opener.

FS Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Micah Hyde Jean Fanor

The most noticeable change on the defensive depth chart is the position for Andy Mulumba, who moved from right outside linebacker to left. Still, he remains behind Mike Neal and Nick Perry, though that could change come the regular season. As with the offensive depth chart, the order doesn't necessarily reflect the players' real status on the team. Rookies Quinten Rollins and LaDarius Gunter appear to be in better standing than Demetri Goodson even though they appear behind him on the chart.

Meet Randall Cobb: backup holder on place kicks. Cobb's "promotion" comes after the team released punter Cody Mandell. Barring an in-game injury, don't expect to see Cobb holding kicks.
