The Minnesota Vikings dropped an unofficial first depth chart on Wednesday, with the regular season 32 days away.

The team didn’t use a numbered format, instead tabbing starters versus backups. But in its tiering system, the Vikings seemed to indicate a traditional depth chart format. Based on the placement of names, this is VikingsTerritory‘s interpretation of the first, albeit unofficial, depth chart.
