Unofficial depth charts are supposed to "unofficial." The New Orleans Saints, like every other NFL team, publish one for public distribution leading up to each preseason game.

The Saints did make some notable changes, though, from their depth chart leading into the first preseason game to this week's roster breakdown heading into Saturday's preseason game against the Texans in Houston.



The full depth chart is at the bottom of this post. Here are the notable changes from Game 1 to Game 2 for the Saints:

- Andrus Peat moved from the starting left tackle to starting right guard with the return of Terron Armstead after coming off the physically unable to perform list. Tim Lelito is listed as the starting right guard. Senio Kelemete stands as the backup at each guard spot.

- Josh Hill landed as the first-team tight end after being second on last week's depth chart. Coby Fleener dropped to No. 3 on the depth chart with Michael Hoomanawanui sitting second. This is curious to say the least.

Doesn't sound like Fleeners working at all by the sounds of that. Hoping this isnt another bad FA signing

Haven't heard much out of camp on Fleener. Was a poor signing for the price we signed him for. I don't think it was a bad pick up, but we spent way more than we should have. If it turns out he isn't even the number 1 it's going to be another Byrd type signing.

If Josh "I'm made of glass" Hill is beating Fleener out its not a good sign. Hopefully this is just a procedural "wake up call".

Is Hakeem Nicks still on the team?

Why the hate on Hill? He's been solid over the past few years as a rotational TE. And I don't remember him being hurt...and if he has been then it certainly hasn't been enough to give him that moniker.

What the hell are you guys talking about? All I heard from Drew Brees quotes was that he's always open??

The unofficial depth charts are always weird for us.
