BEREA (92.3 The Fan) – With the first preseason game set for Thursday night, the Browns released their first unofficial depth chart of the season Monday afternoon.

A few quick thoughts:
– Shon Coleman has had a stronger camp than Cam Erving and is in line to win that starting job at right tackle.
– Although listed as the No. 3 tight end behind Randall Telfer and Seth DeValve, David Njoku is a few good practices strung together away from moving up the chart.
– Starting Brock Osweiler Thursday is a layup for Hue Jackson. Cody Kessler’s continued struggles daily have become tough to watch and there’s no reason to start DeShone Kizer and stir the hype machine as a result of such a move.
– Matthew Days is a solid No. 3 on the Browns RB depth chart and he has a legitimate chance to make the team.
– Jabrill Peppers being listed as a No. 2 safety is no big deal. He’s also the No. 1 kick and punt returner. He’ll get a lot of playing time as a rookie.
– Cody Parkey has a slight edge over rookie Zane Gonzalez but the kicking competition should be fun to watch in the preseason.
