DENVER - Just a few days away from the first preseason game, the Denver Broncos have released their first depth chart for the 2014 season.
Unsurprisingly, Peyton Manning tops the list of quarterbacks, with Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Wes Welker as his top receivers. Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman top the team's list of running backs.
Defensively, Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr. are starters at cornerback while Von Miller, Nate Irving and Danny Trevathan are listed as the team's top linebackers. T.J. Ward and Rahim Moore are the Broncos' top safeties.
No rookies are currently listed as starters on either side of the ball, but Sanders, Ware, Talib and Ward are all newcomers to the team.
