Let's talk about the Arizona Cardinals 2018 depth chart release.

The Arizona Cardinals released their first depth chart of the 2018 season and there were definitely some interesting aspects to it.

Here is the depth chart if you missed it:

Here are five overreactions to the first depth chart of 2018.

1. The rookies are actually in positions to succeed

Josh Rosen is QB2, Christian Kirk is WR5/6, Chase Edmonds is RB2, Chris Campbell is CB3/4 and of course Mason Cole is the starting center. The rookies are all in prevalent spots of the roster and have a chance to make an impact for 2018, that would be quite the departure from what we are used too.

2. Brice Butler is WR2

Starting as the second wide receiver on the depth chart is what the Cardinals wanted when they signed Butler. He's been a consistent threat each day in camp and seems to have a nice repoire with both Sam Bradford and Josh Rosen.

3. The Cardinals tight ends are going to be a problem...

Not for other teams, but for the Cardinals. I think Ricky Seals-Jones has potential, but none of them are proven players and with Mike McCoy's offense, they need two-way tight ends.

4. Chase Edmonds is going to be a problem...

For other teams. The rookie running back is going to be so good, he's going to force himself on the field and to get touches in 2018, despite a healthy David Johnson.

5. Chris Campbell is the second best cornerback on the roster

He's already in the top four, behind only Patrick Peterson and Jamar Taylor and his upside in the Steve Wilks and Al Holcomb defense is quite a bit higher than that of Jamar Taylor or Bene Benwirkere.

It'll be interesting to see how the rest of camp unfolds, but what were your overreactions to the first depth chart?
