The most interesting thing here, is the RB position. The Chiefs have two groups of running backs, something I have never seen before. Group one features Jammal Charles, Shaun Draughn and Cyrus Gray, while group two shows Peyton Hillis and Nate Eachus.

There are also no FBs listed.

Clearly the Chiefs view Hillis and Eachus as FB options. This makes sense. Hillis has played full back and Eachus stepped up and played a little FB in the preseason.

The fact of the matter is, the Chiefs probably don’t plan on using a traditional FB very often. They may often line up with Hilliis in the FB position and Charles behind him but make no mistake, both of these guys are running backs. The same goes for Eachus.

The other notable move here is Jonathan Baldwin is listed behind Steve Breaston. Still, I think when all is said and done, Baldwin will out-perform Breston this season.

Lastly, Dwayne Bowe has regained his starting WR slot.

What do you think Addicts? Are you surprised by KCs unique double RB depth chart?
