According to Denver Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak, the Broncos will release their first depth chart of the 2015 season tomorrow. This will be how the first team, second team, and third team will look when the team takes on the Seattle Seahawks on Friday.

The coaches will sit down tomorrow and figure out the depth chart and playing time for the players. All in preparations for the preseason game later this week.

"Yeah, we’re evaluating every day. We’ll sit down tomorrow, but tomorrow is going to be more about depth charts because that’s where we are heading into Seattle. Probably talking about play time and how we get guys ready. We’ve obviously got some things going on with some various veteran guys that we have to make some decisions on play time in this first game. I think we’ll be more in that mode as we prepare for Tuesday."

The majority of the depth chart will look how we all expect right now, but there are a few positional groups to keep an eye on when the depth chart is released tomorrow.

Running backs:

C.J Anderson will be the starter and Montee Ball figures to be the second back listed. It will be interesting to see where Ronnie Hillman, Juwan Thompson, Jeremy Stewart, and Kapri Bibbs will be listed on the depth chart.

I don't expect any big surprises here, but the depth chart will be telling on how they think of these players currently.

Wide receivers:

The battle for the fourth and fifth spots is a very competitive battle between 5 or so players. I think we will see the veterans get the nod over the younger guys right now, but we could see a surprise or two.

Players like Jordan Taylor, Bennie Fowler, and Solomon Patton have all impressed at times during camp, and will be guys to watch on the depth chart.

The offensive line:

This one is the one I'm looking forward to the most. Will Garcia and Paradis still be listed as starters? and which tackle positions are Chris Clark and Michael Schofield listed at?

Also, have any of the UDFA's moved ahead of anyone?

Now coach Kubiak did say not to put too much stock into the depth chart released tomorrow.

"I would say not very much. I mean, we’ll put one out there, but nobody—I’m sure that there are a few guys on this team that you all know are going to be okay. They’re going to play, but don’t read too much into what’s going on up-front or anywhere. It’s going to be very competitive. They’re going to win and lose jobs in these preseason games and going against good players. I shouldn’t say lose jobs, but they’re going to win jobs playing against good players. We’ll put one out, but like I said, everybody needs to keep their antennas up and keep going."

We here at Mile High Report will have this story for you tomorrow afternoon. How do you guys think the depth chart will look tomorrow?
