After narrowing down the roster to 53 players, the New Orleans Saints released an unofficial depth chart for their Week 1 game against the Buccaneers.

The Saints’ 53-man roster was unique to look through. There were new names, new faces as well as many returning players. The chemistry between them should continue to grow stronger as the team moves forward.

The Saints’ also released their first “unofficial” version of their depth chart this week as well.

There were many similar faces returning to their starting positions. Some old faces were brought back, and some fresh brand new NFL faces appear, including three rookies that the Saints brought in following the 2020 NFL Draft.

There wasn’t much out of the ordinary when it comes to the depth chart that they released. We could have predicted almost every starting spot and who would have it. There are some things we can take away from the coaches’ minds, however.

This depth chart gives us an insight, especially since there was no preseason, into the minds of what the coaches are thinking based on what they have been seeing out of the players in training camp this year.

Here are three of those takeaways.
