The Arizona Cardinals have released their initial depth chart for the 2017 season, and we were not to far off.

Jaron Brown is getting the nod as wide receiver two, following the strong warning sent by Bruce Arians during the preseaon. However, the Cardinals use three receiver sets most of the game, so it doesn't mean a whole lot as to John Brown being “third" on the depth chart.

Kerwynn Williams is the second running back, but you have to wonder how much he'll carry the ball as the main return man as well. Newly signed Alex Boone is the backup right guard, was that why he was signed?

On defense, Deone Bucannon is back as the starting inside linebacker with Karlos Dansby. Meanwhile Phillip Wheeler is the second string outside linebacker behind Markus Golden. That's something you keep an eye on.

It'll be Antoine Bethea starting with Tyrann Mathieu, but how much will Tyvon Branch or Budda Baker be on the field is going to be the most interesting storyline to follow.

Anything jump out to you?
