2. NY Jets rookies having to earn their spot

The Jets left the 2022 NFL Draft with an incredible haul of talented players, but their first depth chart of the year proves that these rookies still need to earn their playing time in the green and white.

Sauce Gardner is clearly fighting a talented Bryce Hall for the second outside cornerback position, but as of right now, he's the only Jets rookie that finds himself near the No. 1 spot for their position on the depth chart.

Garrett Wilson, Breece Hall, and Jermaine Johnson all find themselves sitting behind on the depth chart, but forcing young, talented rookies to earn their spot and their playing time on the team is never a bad thing.

This Jets team is set up to compete now, but also grow for the future, so if guys like Michael Carter, Braxton Berrios, and Corey Davis are playing well enough to keep the rookies out of starting spots for a while, it only creates more healthy competition in New York.

1. The NY Jets offensive line still needs serious depth

The Jets' offensive line was a complete mess just a few years ago, but after slowly building it during the Joe Douglas era, the Jets have a starting lineup along the line full of talent and potential, youth, and experience.

Beyond that starting five, however, the Jets may be in some trouble. The lack of veteran, experienced help could be an issue if a long-term injury, or god forbid multiple, present themselves.

Unfortunately, the Jets have already seen several injuries during camp, with Mekhi Becton being the most notable name to go down earlier on Monday, although the severity of said injury is yet to be determined.

Duane Brown has been in discussion with the Jets in recent days, and he would help the depth tremendously. Right now, though, Jets fans can't be too confident when taking a look at the depth along the offensive line just five weeks out from the regular season.
