Titans Release First 2016 Depth Chart

Check out the first official depth chart.

The Tennessean-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans released their first depth chart of camp today, giving us a little hint as to where each player currently stands. There wasn't anything too shocking about it, but there were a couple of things that jumped out. Take a look at the depth chart below.

The first thing I noticed was how far down Harry Douglas and Justin Hunter were. Tre McBride seems to be coming along nicely and may force the team to keep six receivers. Andre Johnson is in the same category as McBride -- those two may be battling for a spot if the Titans only keep five.

Tajae Sharpe isn't letting go of his first team status. He's been thrown into the fire and he's producing. Dorial Green-Beckham is on the other end of the spectrum. He's not in danger of being cut, but he's under constant fire from the coaching staff. This just sounds all too familiar to Justin Hunter.

David Fluellen is listed ahead of Antonio Andrews, Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster. He's probably not making the roster, but that's more of an indictment of where Sankey and McCluster are at right now. David Cobb is listed as the third back and seems to have a decent lead on that roster spot.

Undrafted nose tackle Antwaun Woods out of USC is listed ahead of second round pick Austin Johnson. Johnson is listed as a nose tackle on the Titans' site, but could see time all over the front. I wouldn't read too much into this.

Jeremiah Poutasi is listed as the second team right guard, so it looks like he won't be the backup tackle. Second year man Josue Matias is listed as the second team left tackle, despite playing at guard last season.

At the end of the day, this depth chart probably doesn't mean much. The staff may be telling the truth here, but it could be a motivational ploy to certain guys. There is still plenty of time between now and relevant cuts and we haven't even seen the first pre-season game yet. So take this all with a grain of salt, but it's still fun to speculate.
