BIRDLAND – Falcons head coach Mike Smith is not going to release an “official” 2010 depth chart until training camp according to the team’s website.
But now that most of the major offseason moves have been made, we’ll set up the template for them.
Rookies aren’t handed anything in this early depth chart, except for rookie returner Dominique Franks, he was projected to win the kickoff and punt return jobs.
Sean Weatherspoon, the first round draft pick, is listed No.2 behind both Mike Peterson and Stephen Nicholas.
Here’s what’s in my notebook as the three-deep depth chart that I’ll take out to mini-camp next week:
THREE DEPTH CHART
QB – 1. Matt Ryan, 2. Chris Redman, 3. John Parker Wilson.
Others: D.J. Shockley.
RB – 1. Michael Turner, 2. Jerious Norwood, 3. Jason Snelling.
Others: Antone Smith and Dimitri Nance.
FB - 1. Ovie Mughelli. 2. Jason Snelling,
