So what are we left with? Nothing much. Don't look too much into this depth chart.

Here's some things that stick out:

1) Some draft picks are omitted (Devin McCourty, Jermaine Cunningham, Aaron Hernandez).

2) James Sanders is listed as a starter at safety, but Brandon Meriweather is still listed as SS, when he has a better nose for a FS.

3) The running backs (Maroney and Taylor) are separated from the backs who catch out of the back field (Faulk and Morris). BJGE is nowhere to be seen.

4) No Torry Holt. But there is a Ron Brace.

5) Logan Mankins is still starting left guard.

6) Vollmer is slotted behind Kaczur (not going to happen due to the injury and because Vollmer is better).

7) Wheatley's been tapped for punt returns, but Edelman isn't listed.

8) Welker makes the chart.

9) No Tyrone McKenzie.

10) This is as bare bones as the roster will ever be. While it's fun to see where people are placed, most of this really means nothing. At all.
