The first real Pittsburgh Steelers depth chart of the 2013 season has been released and Burt Lauten released a picture of it Sunday afternoon via Twitter.
There really aren\’t any big surprises here and has Lauten notes, it\’s subject to change.
Kelvin Beachum is only listed as the backup left tackle, but we all know by now he has worked a lot as the second team center during the practices.
Rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones is of course behind Jason Worilds at right outside linebacker with Adrian Robinson, who played exclusively on the left side last year during the preseason, being listed as the third.
Chris Carter is backing up LaMarr Woodley at left outside linebacker, while both Stevenson Sylvester and Marshall McFadden are backing up Larry Foote and Lawrence Timmons respectively on the inside.
While these depth charts are certainly fine for sparking discussion, I really like to chart the early preseason games to see which player replaces another and at what position throughout the games as it gives you a real good read of not only the pecking order used, but in some cases, position flexibility as well.
