The New Orleans Saints released their first preseason depth chart on Monday in advance of their preseason opener Thursday against the Jacksonville Jaguars

It's never wise to read to much into the NFL preseason depth charts each summer, but because this is the first depth chart of the year, let's look at a few things that stand out, even if they ultimately won't matter when the season begins next month.



Two positions have two starters listed, the three-technique defensive tackle spot with Sheldon Rankins and David Onyemata and strong safety with Kurt Coleman and Vonn Bell.

Based on the practice usage in training camp, neither of these listings is surprising as both pairs of players have rotated heavily with the first-team defense through the first 10 practices.

At linebacker, free-agent acquisition Demario Davis is listed at Will (weak side). He's been practicing at that spot, but it's still a bit surprising to see him listed there after having a career year for the New York Jets in 2017 while playing Mike (middle).

No real surprises, except maybe Te'o

backup qb could get interesting... does JT survive on PS, and if Hill doesn't beat out Savage, does he reprise his Guido Merkins role?

And what the hell is wrong with a Guido role?

TE Deon Yelder
CB Arthur Malet (I envision him as a potential slot guy)...

Two guys I hope we continue to develop.

Re: Saints release official depth chart

I'm not going to say what I'm really thinking after looking at this roster but it's really scary in a good way for sure! We will have the best receiving corps and DEFENSE in the league this year. Our second string would do a good job against most teams and that's what we've needed for so long and you all know I'm excited about GETSOM TAYSOM!

Nothing AG but GETSOM TAYSOM is going to be the 2nd this year and next and will be the starter 3 years from now.
