Noteworthy to Joe is Cody Grimm ahead of 2012 draft pick Keith Tandy at safety. Also, Brian Leonard is listed as the No. 2 running back ahead of rookie Mike James, followed by Peyton Hillis and the captain of the inactive list, Michael Smith.
WR Eric Page, who flashed at practice today and is rarely talked about in the wide receivers battles, is listed as the No. 1 punt returner. Smith has the No. 1 kick returner spot.
Last year, Greg Schiano said depth charts don’t mean much but he acknowledged that changes to the chart reflect current views of the organization. Translation: the depth chart is, in fact, meaningful.
