Projected Bucs two-deep chart -- as of today



Right now, we still don't know when the NFL's league year is going to start and we aren't even sure if and when the lockout will officially end. But assuming things get worked out, it'll quickly be time to look ahead.

So, to get a realistic picture of what the Bucs look like right now, let's take a stab at the two-deep chart as of today. This won't include unrestricted free agents because we can't consider them a part of the team at this moment. Rookies and restricted free agents, though not technically under contract, are on here.

Again, this is totally unofficial and it makes certain assumptions (Brian Price is probably out for now, Da'Quan Bowers seems close, Aqib Talib is safe). But these educated guesses will at least give you a sense of where the Bucs stand heading into training camp.

Surely, you're all in total agreement -- or not. What say you?
