ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Middle linebacker Nate Webster was among the mild surprises Monday as the Denver Broncos released their first depth chart of training camp.

Webster got the nod over free agent Niko Koutouvides. He played strongside linebacker a year ago and made an impression for his work ethic during the offseason training sessions.

The Broncos brought in Koutouvides from Seattle at a price of $7.2 million over three years to play middle linebacker.

Meanwhile, defensive tackle Marcus Thomas finds himself ahead of six-year veteran Kenny Peterson, who had been practicing with the first-stringers for most of camp. While not having had a particularly standout rookie season, Thomas said he expects a lot more out of himself this season.
