The Jets released their first depth chart of the season earlier today. For anyone that missed it, have a look by clicking here. Here are my thoughts, by unit:
OFFENSE: No real surprises on this depth chart here. We have talked about it many times, that Geno is the starter. Unless it falls apart that is not going to change. The most obvious competition is at wide receiver, with 12 listed on the depth chart. That will shake out as the weeks go by. The main three running backs that we all know are actually considered first team, they just can’t list that way on the website. Three headed monster awaits!
DEFENSE: Again, everything is pretty obvious here as well. Nobody has made a big move at the second cornerback position, so listing the veteran Dimitri Patterson at the top of the depth chart makes sense. Obviously this is up for changes, if someone steps up. It’s only the first one.
SPECIAL TEAMS:There might be a change upcoming here. Ryan Quigley is still listed as the punter, although some observations have had Jacob Schum outperforming him. The depth chart might be changing. It was also interesting to note Jacoby Ford at the top of the kick returning depth chart, but third on the punt return.
