The Seattle Seahawks take on the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night and Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times gave Twitter a nice look at the depth chart provided for media before the game.

I wouldn’t take this preseason week two depth chart as gospel or anything. They’re figuring shit out and trying things anew, but these are probably the pertinent points of interest:
- The receivers who still seem to be “buried” on the depth chart are Tanner McEvoy, EZ Nwachukwu, Antwan Goodley, and Kenny Lawler. I know fans like Lawler’s hands, but as a number five receiver who isn’t really here to block or play special teams, he seems like a longshot. Lawler is a good practice squad candidate if he passes through waivers, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see a team that does need a pass-catcher on the roster to give him a flier.
- The number two right tackle is J’Marcus Webb, but assuming he doesn’t play, that pushes Terry Poole up to the second team. Kristjan Sokoli and Joey Hunt aren’t getting those first or second team reps that you would assume a player about to make the team would get. Will they ultimately decide that they prefer Sokoli’s upside of Will Pericak’s ... whatever they like about Will Pericak.
- Tani Tupou looks to be in the lead to win a job as fullback.
- Quentin Jefferson lines up as the first backup to Michael Bennett. His versatility on the defensive line seems to make him a lock to make the roster.
- Tony McDaniel slides into the second string for defensive tackle, ahead of Brandin Bryant for now.
- Mike Morgan, Cassius Marsh, Eric Pinkins is the order at SAM linebacker.
- No surprises at cornerback really.
- Kelcie McCray is the starting strong safety in place of Kam Chancellor. The second string is Brandon Browner at SS and Steven Terrell at FS, keeping Tyvis Powell on the third string.
