The Jaguars official depth chart features some interesting things, including Denard Robinson as the No. 2 running back.

The official depth chart for the Jacksonville Jaguars heading into their Week 1 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles has been released and there aren't really any surprises. For those hoping for a surprise and Blake Bortles suddenly being named the starter will be disappointed, as Chad Henne is listed as the starter with Bortles as the backup.

Outside of the quarterback position the most noteworthy thing on the depth chart is the fact that second year running back Denard Robinson is listed behind Toby Gerhart, with Jordan Todman behind the former Michigan Wolverines quarterback. Robinson looked like an effective runner in the preseason and showed some of that explosive ability out of the backfield that made him an interesting draft pick.

The other notable thing on the depth chart is the fact that Cecil Shorts III and Marqise Lee are listed as the team's starting wide receivers, with rookie Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson backing them up. It probably doesn't mean much, considering the team will likely run multiple three-receiver sets, but I thought Hurns desereved to get the starting nod based on everything he's done.

Currently Mike Brown is listed as the team's punt returner with Todman as the primary kick returner. The other positions at depth are pretty easy to figure out.
