Broncos release first depth chart of 2019

For the first official depth chart, Kevin Hogan gets the nod at QB2.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — For his first official depth chart, Broncos head Coach Vic Fangio defers to the veterans.

Kevin Hogan is the No. 2 quarterback. And not rookie Drew Lock, who is the No. 3 QB ahead of fellow rookie Brett Rypien.

And veteran Su’a Cravens is a No. 2 safety, ahead of the likes of Jamal Carter and Dymonte Thomas.

Otherwise, the Broncos’ depth chart had no surprises. Emmanuel Sanders is a No. 1 receiver even though he has yet to participate in team drills during training camp as he continues to recover from last year’s Achilles injury.

Joe Flacco is the No. 1 quarterback and Phillip Lindsay is the No. 1 running back.
