Buffalo Bills 2011 Depth Chart: Five Notes

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey told assembled media on Monday that he'd announce any forthcoming lineup changes on Wednesday. If the team's recently re-released official depth chart is any indication, however, those changes may already be publicly available.

As expected, Demetrius Bell is listed as the first-team left tackle, and Andy Levitre is listed as the first-team left guard. Gailey alluded to this lineup being the Week 1 look yesterday, but it now appears official.

Also of note: the team's two starting cornerbacks are purportedly Terrence McGee and Leodis McKelvin, with Drayton Florence - arguably the team's best defensive back last year - and rookie Aaron Williams in reserve roles. This is particularly surprising regarding McKelvin, who struggled in 2010, struggled more this pre-season, and does not appear to have Gailey's full confidence.

To wrap up the most important offensive and defensive notes: Alex Carrington is now officially listed as an outside linebacker, where he backs up Chris Kelsay on the strong side. Finally, and perhaps most importantly to Bills fans, Fred Jackson is listed as the starting running back ahead of C.J. Spiller.
