The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released their first depth chart of the preseason on Aug. 5.

Perhaps the most notable aspect of the chart was rookie receiver Mike Evans, widely expected to be a starter, being listed second string behind veteran Chris Owusu. Fellow rookie Austin Seferian-Jenkins is buried even further, coming in fourth among tight ends.

Unsurprisingly, high-priced free agent pickups Michael JohnsonAnthony Collins and Dashon Goldson were listed as starters at defensive end, left tackle and free safety, respectively.
