It is an extremely early one, but Dennis Allen’s depth chart for Friday’s preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys included some surprising placements for his 2013 draft class. Good for others, worrying for one particular fourth round pick out of Arkansas.
Dennis Allen has Tyler Wilson slotted in the #4 spot on the QB depth chart this week, behind Matt Flynn, Terrelle Pryor and undrafted free agent Matt McGloin according to Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.
Rookie Sio Moore fills out the starting depth chart at linebacker as he has impressed in Napa so far and Miles Burris continues to sit on the injured list. The final notable depth chart note was Richard Gordon being listed at starting tight end, beating out more prolific pass catchers in David Ausberry and Mychal Rivera by being the most consistent blocker for the Raiders power blocking scheme.
Pat Sims and Menelik Watson join Burris on the injured list. Veteran punter Chris Kluwe also was slotted ahead of project Marquette King by Allen.
