Doug Martin leapfrogs Blount on depth chart

All signs have been pointing to it, and now the official depth chart reveals it.

As spotted by the folks at JoeBucsFan.com, rookie tailback Doug Martin has leapfrogged LeGarrette Blount as the starting tailback in Tampa.

Three prior depth charts listed Blount as the starter.

Despite the depth chart that was in place on Friday, Martin started over Blount in the preseason game against the Patriots.

It’s no surprise.  Coach Greg Schiano said earlier this month that the plan and hope was for Martin to win the job.
