Training camp is underway for the Green Bay Packers, and there is still so much to play for. However, we are already beginning to learn how the depth chart may look at the start of the regular season.

There are various positional battles taking place at camp, including backup quarterback, right tackle, and safety. What has become clear in the early days of training camp is which players are currently ahead at various positions.

It also means that some players have fallen down the depth chart. It's still early and things can change in the coming weeks, but these four players already seem to be lower on the depth chart than many expected.

4. Tarvarius Moore

The Packers signed Tarvarius Moore in free agency, presumably to compete for a starting job at safety and contribute on special teams. In the first week of training camp, it seems he is nowhere near a starting role in Joe Barry's defense.

Paul Bretl of Packers Wire noted that Darnell Savage and Rudy Ford continue to get the first-team reps, with Jonathan Owens and Dallin Leavitt as the backups. Bretl believes they are "locked in as the top four."

That leaves Moore competing for the fifth spot at safety, which is way lower than we assumed when the Packers signed him.

It's worth noting that Moore returned to practice on Thursday, having missed the opening session due to illness. Maybe he can move up the depth chart between now and Week 1, but he has work to do.
