Three days before the Bucs' preseason opener at Jacksonville, the team has released an "unofficial" depth chart -- all 90 players, clear from starters to fourth-string -- with some curious wrinkles from which you can read as much or as little as you want.

There's a definite nod to experience over youth -- rookies are lower than expected all over, like Austin Seferian-Jenkins as the No. 4 tight end. Here's the full list -- a comma indicates a drop in tier, while players sharing a spot are noted with a slash.
