2012 Steelers Depth Chart – Week 1

The Pittsburgh Steelers released their first depth regular season depth chart for the 2012 season on Monday, and there really are no surprises listed on it.

Chris Rainey is listed as the primary kick and punt returner over Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown respectively.

Casey Hampton is listed as the starting nose tackle over Steve McLendon, but rest assured that both will rotate in and see quite a bit of time early in the season.

Despite a solid preseason, Jonathan Dwyer remains behind Isaac Redman, who remains behind the rehabbing Rashard Mendenhall.

Despite missing all of the offseason program and training camp, Mike Wallace is back atop the “x” receiver spot on the depth chart.
