Redskins release first unofficial depth chart of 2019 preseason
By Ian Cummings
Ahead of the team’s preseason debut on Thursday against the Browns, the Washington Redskins have released their first unofficial depth chart of 2019.
Now a week and a half into training camp, the Washington Redskins have seen enough to put together a tentative roster structure. Players have been battling on the field, putting their skills to work, and their pads together. They’ve prepared individually. Now it’s time for the team to prepare its lineup.
It’s worth noting that this depth chart does not mean much, in terms of longterm substance. This initial depth chart is the foundation for the battles that will continue to flare up over the next four weeks, and by the end of preseason, we should see plenty of movement. The Redskins have a history of placing rookies behind veterans, despite skill level differences. That said, the current placement of players is not entirely irrelevant either, as it sheds light on both the progress of rookies and the status of potential sleepers who might have snuck onto the fringes.
Kareem Copeland of the Washington Post put up a version of the Redskins depth chart. A similar version can be found below, derived from the original. The linked players are listed as starters. The unlinked players are, well, not starters.
Here is the Redskins first depth chart of 2019:

The specialists were left out. No one cares about specialists.
The Redskins themselves had an article written on their site about the depth chart release, and in that article, it was acknowledged that many positional competitions are still underway. Even so, there are still things to take away from this depth chart release, and we’ll have more analysis for you soon. For now, feel free to voice your own thoughts in the comments section below, and don’t freak out if your favorite player isn’t on the chart. This is unofficial, and prone to substantial change. There are still four football games yet to be played. Nothing is set in stone yet.
