Kansas City Chiefs Depth Chart: Jamaal Charles Makes First Team

The Kansas City Chiefs have released their initial depth chart prior to their first preseason game. The chart will likely undergo some changes before the regular season kicks off, but it is still worth taking a look.

Joel Thorman at Arrowhead Pride took a look at four of the surprises coming out of the release of the depth chart. The biggest surprise -- and a welcome one to Chiefs fans -- concerns wide receiver Jamaal Charles.

1. Jamaal Charles is on the first team. We shouldn't even have to say this but we will because Haley listed Charles as the No. 2 back during his tenure. Charles is where he deserves to be -- No. 1 on the depth chart.

2. Josh Bellamy is third on the receiver depth chart, behind Steve Breaston and Dexter McCluster. Ahead of Devon Wylie, a fourth round pick. Ahead of Zeke Markshausen, who has experience at Chiefs training camp. So he's my new pick to make it out of the undrafted free agents.

3. Kevin Boss is the No. 1 tight end with Tony Moeaki behind him. Not a major surprise, I suppose. Moeaki is returning to the team this year, Boss is the new guy, so I figured Moeaki may sit atop the depth chart. Apparently not.

4. Brady Quinn is the No. 2 quarterback; Ricky Stanzi is the No. 3 quarterback. This is still a competition and could change during the preseason. I didn't see a noticeably-better Quinn when I was at camp. This is fluid.

You can find the complete Chiefs depth chart on the official team website.
