Cards Release Training Camp Depth Chart

With the preseason opener approaching this weekend, the Cardinals released their first official depth chart.  There aren’t too many surprises to note, but here are a few thoughts.

  • Veteran Monty Beisel is beside Paris Lenon at inside linebacker, which seems like the most sensible move at this point.  Beisel has played the position before for the Cards and is probably the most apt stand in.
  • Trumaine McBride is ahead of Greg Toler at CB.  I think this is more of a challenge extended by the coaching staff to Toler than any confidence in McBride.
  • Onrea Jones is listed as the fourth wide receiver, but Andre Roberts should probably take that spot before the regular season starts.  Also, Roberts is listed as the punt returner, with LaRod Stephens-Howling assuming his usual kick return duty.
  • Reggie Wells is slated at RG ahead of Deuce Lutui, who according to talent should really be starting.  Lutui is likely behind because of his late start.
  • Dan Williams is third on the NT chart, which is likely due to his conditioning.  Whisenhunt said a few times that he’s not quite up to game speed, yet.
