Buccaneers release unofficial depth chart ahead of 49ers matchup
By Cory Kinnan
Barber still reigns, Miller and Hudson on the edge
Offensively, Jameis Winston is the starter to no surprise after he finally went through a training camp with no competition. Last year’s leading rusher Peyton Barber is still listed as the lead dawg out of the backfield with Ronald Jones, Dare Ogunbowale, and newest Buc T.J. Logan behind him. Expect the Buccaneers to use more of a backfield by committee this year than they did a year ago as Ogunbowale and Jones have shown flashes this preseason.

At receiver, Mike Evans Chris Godwin, and Breshad Perriman occupy the first three receiver spots as expected. Behind the three veterans are second year receivers Justin Watson and Bobo Wilson respectively with Scotty Miller listed as the sixth and final receiver on the depth chart.
Tanner Hudson is listed behind Antony Auclair, even after a strong preseason with O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate at the top of the tight end depth chart. It is unusual for a team to carry ten total receivers and tight ends, so expect Hudson’s spot to be near the bottom of the 53 man roster.
The offensive line has nothing unsurprising as Donovan Smith, Ali Marpet, Ryan Jensen, Alex Cappa, and Demar Dotson are listed as the starters as expected. This rounds out the offensive side of the ball with little to no shocking revelations made.
