Oakland Raiders Depth Chart 2011: Raiders Release First Preseason Depth Chart

The Oakland Raiders posted an unofficial depth chart on their website. While I don't read too much into it, it's still a decent indicator on what Hue Jackson and the coaches are seeing at this moment in time. 

I was mostly interested in looking at the offensive line. Stefen Wisniewski (2011 second-round draft pick) is listed as Samson Satele's backup. However, I expect Wiz to be given every opportunity to start. 

The biggest surprise to me was the wide receiver situation. Darrius Heyward-Bey is listed as the No. 1 receiver, even though he's coming off an injury and has barely practiced in training camp.

The other starting receiver is Jacoby Ford. He is currently injured and is expected to be out for at least another week. I expected to see Louis Murphy as the No. 1 receiver. 

On opening night, I predict that we will see Murphy and Chaz Schilens starting at WR with Ford in the slot. 

Again, don't read too much into this. It's very early. A lot can change and this is an unofficial depth chart.

Still, I figured I would post it and let you all get a look.

Tell me what you think.
