Here's a stab at a post-draft depth chart for, say, the start of training camp. Why then? First, there are several players coming back from injuries, including cornerback Richard Sherman (Achilles), linebacker Brock Coyle (shoulder), and safeties Chanceller James (knee) and Marcell Harris (Achilles), who won't take part in OTA sessions in the spring but who are on track for training camp.

Rookie Kentavius Street (knee) won't be available all season and is not included. I also did not include Reuben Foster. He will not take part in any practices and team functions until his legal issues are resolved or there's a significant change that warrants bringing him back. As of now, jury selection in his case is scheduled for late July, which also is when training camp is set to begin. That is, if his case goes to trial, it's hard to see him taking part in the early sessions.
