Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano treats

Dont place too much importance on the Bucs first depth chart coach Greg Schiano said Tuesday. Since they haven't played a preseason game its impossible to determine the pecking order for the Sept.9 season opener against Carolina.

We released a depth chart strictly because its league mandated I guess, so we did it Schiano said. I wouldnt read too much into it right now. We havent played anybody, we havent been able to play one live snap other than the young kids Saturday. But just for us we'll be spending a lot of time together these next couple months I think. The way that I've handled and the way that I will handle the depth chart is every move that we make is whatever gives us the best chance to win.

Among the most interesting items: LeGarrette Blount is the starting tailback over first-round pick Doug Martin. Two rookies are penciled in as starters on defense: S Mark Barron, a first-round pick from Alabama and Lavonte David a second-rounder from Nebraska at weakside linebacker.

Roy Miller is the starter at nosetackle ahead of Gary Gipson. Bears free agent Amobi Okoye is listed as the backup to Gerald McCoy. Anthony Gaitor is the backup to starting right CB Eric Wright. Myron Lewis who has had a good training camp, is third at left cornerback behind starter Aqib Talib and rookie Leonard Johnson.Bucs receivers dropped a lot of passes in Tuesdays practice a rarity that Schiano explained as tired legs not bad hands.
