The mantra of “One Step Faster”, has caused quite a bit of player turnover coming into 2012.  As such, there are some guys that may fall down the depth chart as the Jets get faster.  Ryan Alfieri of bleacherreport.com takes a look at eight guys that could fall under this category.  Here is an excerpt about one of the guys he looks at, Mike Devito:

To be honest, I have always been a huge DeVito fan since the middle of the 2010 season. For all of the credit Sione Pouha gets in the middle of the defensive line, DeVito can be a dominant player against the run.  One area DeVito lacks in, however, is rushing the passer, which prompted the Jets to draft Quinton Coples 16th overall in April’s draft. Coples is a versatile player that can provide the Jets with an interior pass-rush that they have been lacking.  While DeVito will still see plenty of time in run situations, his status as a starter is in grave danger. Coples is already working with the starters in OTAs and will soon officially replace DeVito as the starting defensive end opposite Wilkerson.

It really is a good read, take a look at his whole piece by clicking here.  You will see at least one guy that a lot of us hope falls down the depth chart (Hint: He plays right tackle).  Enjoy!
