Looking at the depth chart heading into 2022 OTAs and eventually training camp, which positions present the most intrigue?
It looks like the following positions are up for grabs:
RB3 and RB4
WR5 and WR6
QB - Goff and Boyle are virtual locks, with Blough undoubtedly heading to the PS.
TE - Hock and Mitchell are in, with Wright, Griffin, Zylstra, Deese and Givan fighting for 1 spot.
RB - Williams, Swift and Cabinda are in. Igwebuike and Jefferson are in, but should be nervous about Reynolds and Bell challenging them for a spot.
WR - Jamo, Chark, ARSB, Reynolds are locks. I personally think Cephus and Raymond are, too, but it’s conceivable the UDFA class might challenge for a spot or two. The challengers are: Pimpleton, Kennedy, Sutton, Benson and Johnson.
OL - We know the starting 5. Brown and Nelson are virtual locks at backup. That leaves 1 or 2 spots open for: Obeid, Kraemer, Jarvis, McCollum, Stenberg, Skipper and Eze. The money they spent on Eze tells me he’s our 8th lineman. Is there a 9th?
It seems like the biggest battles of the most significance is at RB.
