At the begining of The Sopranos, I don't understand exactly what is Tony Soprano's title in the crime organisation.

While DiMeo is in prison, Jackie Aprile is the acting Boss but he is treated for cancer at the hospital. Paulie, Pussy seem to be made men, caporegimes and Chris, a rookie soldier. So, is Tony also a capo? He looks higher ranked than Paulie and Pussy but younger thant them...

A subsidiary question is about the starting rank of Sylvio, who is often descibed as his consigliere (he obviously doesn't have the same rank than Paulie and Pussy) but as Tony is not the actual Boss, can he have a consigliere?

Tony Soprano was a capo at the beginning of the show. We can see it in the minute 1.29 of this scene (one of the greatest endings) how a police officer is reconstructing the mafia hierarchy.
