Ravens Release First Depth Chart of Preseason

Guess who's listed as a co-starter on the Ravens' first unofficial depth chart? - Mitch Stringer-US PRESSWIRE

It's not a definitive depth chart whatsoever, but it does provide an early guide to the season.

With the first preseason game against Tampa Bay looming, the Ravens released a depth chart to the media.

The depth chart, as it is each week even in the regular season, is put together by the Ravens' public relations staff and isn't necessarily representative of what the team plans to do with each position.

Even so, this does provide an early look for what could potentially be seen when Baltimore kicks off the preseason next Thursday.

The unofficial depth chart:

In the traditional pro set on offense, the Ravens first team is as follows: QB Joe Flacco, WR Torrey Smith, WR Jacoby Jones, RB Ray Rice, FB Vonta Leach, TE Ed Dickson, LT Bryant McKinnie, LG Kelechi Osemele, C Gino Gradkowski, RG Marshal Yanda and RT Michael Oher. Yanda has a shoulder injury and probably won't play Thursday. Jah Reid is his listed backup.

In the base defense, the Ravens first team is as follows: DT Arthur Jones, NT Haloti Ngata, DE Chris Canty, Rush LB Terrell Suggs, Will LB Jameel McClain, Mike LB Daryl Smith, Sam LB Courtney Upshaw or Elvis Dumervil, CB Lardarius Webb, CB Corey Graham, SS James Ihedigbo and FS Michael Huff. With McClain (spinal cord contusion) waiting to be cleared, Josh Bynes is his listed backup.

The offense looks the part of what the media has seen in practice each day, though multiple receivers have seen time playing the No. 2 spot. Jones fits fine in that spot on the depth chart for the time being.

On defense, there is one noticeable quirk with the first team: Dumervil would appear to be a clear starter ahead of Upshaw. Upshaw will see plenty of snaps, certainly, but it would be a stretch to assume he'll open games with Dumervil on the bench.

Ngata's listed at nose tackle, which is where he's played most of his snaps at during training camp so far. However, defensive coordinator Dean Pees is expected to move his linemen around to try and confuse offensive lines.

Here are some notes about the rest of the depth chart:
