    LS Mike Windt John Phillips
    KR Richard Goodman Eddie Royal Fozzy Whittaker Keenan Allen
    Dan DePalma
    PR Eddie Royal Keenan Allen Josh Johnson Luke Tasker


    Biggest things I see:

    Dan Depalma listed as 6th receiver over Willie, Goodman, Tasker.
    Gachkar listed over D.J. Smith at MLB.
    Marshall is listed 4th string but im sure that's due to no practice yet.
    Cattouse listed as 2nd FS, while Stuckey is backing up SS? Would think Taylor wins the backup at SS before starting next year and Stuckey has been Weddle's backup for the last few years, strange to see him listed at SS.
    Goodman still listed as #1 KR, but they haven't really given anyone else a chance.

    I wouldn't put much stock in the depth order in that depth chart. It's not like Marshall is going to get cut and they're keeping everyone in front of him...

    Interesting that they still list Ohrnberger as Guard and Molk as backup center. Those 2 guys have been swopping places recently. The Stuckey and Addae setup looks odd to me, shouldn't they be swopped also?

    I hope we keep three QBs this season. At risk of getting flamed to death, I like what I've seen out of CW lately, which semi-surprised me because I always thought they kept him around as backup because he was familiar with the offense and because Norv (for whatever reason) needed someone to call in plays for him. But now there's a new offense and CW seems fairly well dialed in. Sorenson? Is there any flaw in his game? Lights out so far in preseason. Really looking forward to seeing more Thursday if the blackout is lifted.

    The only possible flaw I've seen with Sorensen which is what you get from most all rookie QBs is their zeroing in on a principal target and so showing the D where you are going with the ball. Once he learns to look around and work his progressions he will improve greatly.

    And on occasion he uses too much arm and overthrows his target. Again, a rookie trying to prove something. This could be trained out of him. I think he is a fantastic project and with all of the quarterback issues in the league right now, no way should we try to sneak him on the PS. He will be snatched up faster than Tolzien was.

    Roster spot in jeopardy for Chargers' Max Starks, as Michael Harris makes a push: http://utsd.us/1dKhDuz

    Max Starks fighting for roster spot
    Max Starks knew when he joined the Chargers in May that he'd be competing.
    He didn't expect it would be for this.
    The Chargers tackle has spent most of the past three months vying for the starting spot on the left side. Now that it's apparent King Dunlap is the choice there, although not officially declared by coach Mike McCoy, Starks' roster spot appears firmly in jeopardy as he finds himself in a new competition.
    Starks, 31, and Michael Harris, 24, are competing to be the Chargers' swing tackle. The reserve role supports either the left or right tackle as needed during a game.
    The recent division of reps suggests Harris is the favorite.
    When Dunlap briefly exited Saturday's exhibition with an ankle injury, it was Harris who replaced him. When Dunlap missed Monday's practice with ankle soreness, it was Harris again who brought support.
    A nine-game starter in 2012 as an undrafted rookie, Harris has practiced mostly on the right side this offseason. That experience and his current first-team work seem to be preparing him to handle the versatile swing role in the regular season.
    "We've got one more game," Harris said, referring to Thursday's exhibition finale against the 49ers. "Just got to go out there and prove to the coaches that they can count on me and I can be a guy who can come in and play. ... I've got Phil (Rivers) and all the quarterbacks counting on me. If something happens to one of our tackles, I need to be able to go in and not skip a beat."
    The situation has deteriorated rapidly around Starks.
    Dunlap opened the first two weeks of training camp as the first-team left tackle, performing well and establishing himself over Starks as the favorite for the job. The outlook was reinforced during the first game when Dunlap was sharp in a 12-play scoring drive. Starks followed with a second team that was out of sync.
    On Aug. 10, the two veterans started rotating at first-team left tackle in practice. They then rotated series against the Bears, as Starks started and played 21 snaps. After that game, the rotation with Dunlap quickly ended.
    During the weeks Dunlap saw favorable practice reps, Starks emphasized the importance of games. On Monday, he said he would've liked "more of an opportunity" to get in games with the ones, "but that's not the way it went."
    The Chargers must cut their roster from 75 to 53 players before Saturday at 3 p.m.
    "Is it tough?" Starks said. "No. It's football. I leave it to them upstairs. I don't know how they feel or think, so I guess we'll see after this game."
