The Denver Broncos released their first depth chart ahead of their week one matchup against the Tennessee Titans. This is our first look at the depth chart after an abbreviated Training Camp period and no preseason games.

So let us take a look at how the Broncos depth chart shakes out ahead of their 2020 season opening game.

Offense Depth Chart

Position Player Player Player Player
Position Player Player Player Player
WR Courtland Sutton DaeSean Hamilton Tyrie Cleveland
LT Garett Bolles Calvin Anderson
LG Dalton Risner Austin Schlottmann
C Lloyd Cushenberry Austin Schlottmann
RG Graham Glasgow Netane Muti
RT Elijah Wilkinson Demar Dotson
TE Noah Fant Nick Vannett Jake Butt Albert Okwuegbunam
WR Jerry Jeudy/Tim Patrick K.J. Hamler
RB Melvin Gordon/Phillip Lindsay Royce Freeman
QB Drew Lock Jeff Driskel
FB Andrew Beck


  • Rookie center Lloyd Cushenberry won the starting job at center.
  • Tackle Elijah Wilkinson held off veteran Demar Dotson for the starting right tackle job.
  • Rookie wide receiver Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick are both listed as starters. My guess is that we will see Patrick start outside with Jeudy being the slot receiver with the Broncos going heavy with three receivers.
  • Running Backs Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay are also listed as co-starters and we’ll likely see a healthy dose of both backs this season
  • Andrew Beck is listed as your fullback but can also contribute at tight end as well

Defense Depth Chart

DE Shelby Harris Dre'Mont Jones
NT Mike Purcell McTelvin Agim
DE Jurrell Casey DeMarcus Walker
SLB Von Miller Jeremiah Attaochu
WLB Bradley Chubb Malik Redd
ILB Alexander Johnson Austin Calitro
ILB Josey Jewell Mark Barron Joe Jones
LCB A.J. Bouye Davontae Harris Duke Dawson Jr.
RCB Bryce Callahan Michael Ojemudia Essang Bassey
SS Kareem Jackson Duke Dawson Jr.
FS Justin Simmons Trey Marshall


  • Josey Jewell will be your second starting inside linebacker replacing the role once held by the recently released Todd Davis.
  • Linebacker Mark Barron is listed as Jewell’s backup so I’m assuming we’ll see him replace Jewell in sub-packages.
  • Corner Davontae Harris is listed as A.J. Bouye’s backup likely meaning he’ll come in on nickel packages as the boundary corner while Callahan moves to the slot
  • Duke Dawson Jr. will serve as a reserve corner as well as Justin Simmons backup at safety
