The depth chart is unofficial, which means the order at each position could change at any given moment. But assuming this lists the starters, three rookies will get a crack at starting in their NFL debut. Cornerback Derek Stingley Jr., running back Dameon Pierce and safety Jalen Pitre will all start Sunday against the Colts, while first-round offensive lineman Kenyon Green is likely not too far away from joining the first team in favor of veteran Justin McCray.
