Oakland Raiders: First Depth Chart Reveals Ugly News at WR

I am hoping, and it should be expected, that the Oakland Raiders depth chart is a fluid document. Mainly because of the ugly sight of the wide receiver listings. Darrius Heyward-Bey is listed as the starting receiver along with Jacoby Ford. It is a grim sight to see DHB on the top of the depth chart. That puts the "-" ahead of Louis Murphy, Chaz Schilens and Denarius Moore. I don't get it, and hopefully that changes, but I don't see a reason to think it will.

Also of note is the fact that some guys are listed as backups, but I hope they switch to starter at a different position when the season rolls around (players are only listed at one position). Wisniewski is the backup to Satele at center. If this order remains, hopefully Wiz moves to left guard ahead of Loper. Travis Goethel is listed as the backup MLB, and that leaves Quentin Groves as the starting WLB, and hopefully Goethel takes Groves spot there—or they bring in someone else. The depth chart at LB is not a pretty picture. 

The other thing that caught my is that Chimdi Chekwa is not on the depth chart. Granted, he is injured, but other injured players are on. Walter McFadden and DVD are the third and fourth corners with no clue given as to which one is which. Undrafted, but impressive rookie, Sterling Moore is also not on the the depth chart.
