Here's the first depth chart of the season released by the Vikings

The best competition might be at Chad Greenway's old position.

Training camp competitions are few and far between based on the unofficial depth chart released by the Vikings on Monday. 

Dalvin Cook doesn't appear to have any competition at running back because Latavius Murray has yet to suit up after offseason ankle surgery. 

The wide receivers look pretty much set with Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen followed by Laquon Treadwell, Jarius Wright and Michael Floyd.

Rookie third-round pick Pat Elflein has not yet unseated Nick Easton at center. 

The competition to watch, at least for a starting position, right now is the outside linebacker job formerly handled by Chad Greenway. The job is up for grabs between Emmanuel Lamur and Edmond Robinson, although rookie Ben Gedeon has also received some first-team reps, according to
