The New York Giants released their first unofficial depth chart on Thursday. It included some surprises, like Adrien Robinson being listed as fourth-team among tight ends. So, let's review.

A word of warning first. Don't take this depth chart too seriously. It is unofficial. Also, things like listing Robinson last on the depth chart likely don't indicate where he really stands. More likely, it's another tool being used by the coaching staff to let Robinson -- and other players -- know they have work to do to earn their spots.

Let's look at some of the interesting positions:

Tight End -- Larry Donnell is listed first, with Robinson and Kellen Davis simply as "other." Davis hasn't impressed, while Daniel Fells (listed as No. 2 has). As for Robinson, once again, read this as the coaches pushing him.

Fullback -- Henry Hynoski is listed as No. 1, with John Conner No. 2. This competition is too close to call, so I wouldn't read anything into this. The two players have been splitting reps.

Right Guard -- Brandon Mosley is listed as No. 1, with John Jerry No. 2. Weston Richburg isn't listed at all, but he could still end up with the job. Richburg is No. 2 at center.

Running Back -- David Wilson is listed No. 2, and rookie Andre Williams as "other." Williams, however, has been working as the team's goal line back. So, I say again, don't overreact.

Defensive Tackle -- Cullen Jenkins and Mike Patterson are listed as the starters, which is exactly what we have seen during the first practices of training camp.

Defensive End -- Again following what we have seen in camp, Mathias Kiwanuka is listed No. 1 and Robert Ayers No. 2.

Linebacker -- Rookie Devon Kennard is listed as the starting strong-side linebacker. I have said it before, but it is obvious the Giants really like what they see in the fifth-round pick.

Kick Return -- Quintin Demps tops the kickoff return chart, and Trindon Holliday the punt return chart.
