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.
Jake Butt, who has been bothered by his left knee injury, is listed as the No. 4 tight end behind Jeff Heuerman, Noah Fant and Troy Fumagalli.
Devontae Booker is the top kickoff returner and River Cracraft is the top punt returner.
