NY Jets offensive linemen (9):

- Mekhi Becton, Alijah Vera-Tucker (R), Connor McGovern, Greg Van Roten, Morgan Moses, George Fant, Alex Lewis, Dan Feeney, Cameron Clark

The Jets have more offensive line depth than they've had in years and the recent signing of Morgan Moses only solidifies that depth.

All of a sudden, the Jets have quality depth at both tackle and guard with George Fant now serving as the team's swing tackle — assuming Moses beats him out in camp.

Fant is a below-average starter, but in a league with very little quality offensive line depth, Fant has to be considered one of the best depth pieces in the NFL.

The projected starting five are Mekhi Becton, rookie Alijah Vera-Tucker, Connor McGovern, Greg Van Roten, and Moses, with Van Roten's starting job the only one truly in jeopardy.

He'll have to fend off the returning Alex Lewis as well as free-agent signing Dan Feeney for the starting right guard role.

Feeney's roster spot should be pretty safe given that he might also double as the team's backup center. If the Jets don't trust Feeney in that role, that could open up a roster spot for someone like Jimmy Murray who's been with the organization for the better part of the last two years.

The Jets don't have to carry nine offensive linemen, but they'd like to see Cameron Clark earn a roster spot this summer. Clark is the forgotten man in the offensive line room, but the Jets remain high on his potential.

Moses' signing probably seals the fate of both Chuma Edoga and Conor McDermott while free-agent addition Corey Levin is just stuck behind a crowded guard depth chart.
