Brock Osweiler and Peyton Manning Broncos stadium

The Denver Broncos‘ first depth chart of the 2012 season is expected today, The Denver Post reports. You can hit refresh on your browser window right here to see if and when it’s posted (feel free to hit us up on email/Twitter if you see it up).

Very little of the depth chart is settled, but the most interesting positions to watch will be backup running backs, quarterbacks, and the entire defense (perhaps outside of cornerback, where the first four slots are more or less settled).

Also, keep in mind that this first depth chart will still be influenced by two things: politics, and the lack of preseason. For example, I’m expecting the quarterback depth chart to read Caleb Hanie, Adam Weber, then rookie Brock Osweiler, but by the end of the preseason the depth chart will be drawn strictly by whoever did the best job. Based on practices so far I’d reverse that order.

But that’s why they play the preseason.
