This is the first depth chart released by the team during training camp

As the second full week of training camp begins, the New York Jets have released their first unofficial depth chart of the season:

While it has no official impact on the Jets, there are a few things on it that may surprise some fans.

First of all, Breece Hall is listed as RB3 on the depth chart, behind Michael Carter and Tevin Coleman. That’s going to change quickly.

A similar pattern stands at wide receiver, where Garrett Wilson is listed as the second-team Z receiver, behind Elijah Moore. The three starters are Corey Davis (X), Elijah Moore (Z), and Braxton Berrios (slot).

It is clear that the Jets are telling their rookies that they need to earn their spots on the depth chart. Head coach Robert Saleh has repeatedly emphasized this throughout the offseason.

To continue that trend, Trevon Wesco is listed as TE3, with Jeremy Ruckert, Lawrence Cager, and Kenny Yeboah all at TE4.

At quarterback, Joe Flacco is QB2 while Mike White is QB3. Jets X-Factor has pointed out that Flacco is cemented as the backup quarterback, and fan favorite Mike White may no longer have a role with this team.

On the defensive side of the ball, one thing that stands out is that John Franklin-Myers is listed at EDGE. It makes sense considering that he played there last year, but we expect him to slide inside for most of the Jets’ defensive snaps this season. Solomon Thomas is listed as the team’s second starter at interior DL.

Meanwhile, Jermaine Johnson is listed as a third-string edge rusher behind Carl Lawson and Vinny Curry.

At linebacker, the main surprise is that Marcell Harris is listed as the current starting Will linebacker, with Kwon Alexander as the backup. That does not accurately reflect how the Jets have been lining up.

At corner, Sauce Gardner has already earned a tie with Bryce Hall as the team’s second starting cornerback opposite D.J. Reed. At free safety, Lamarcus Joyner is listed as the starter, with Jason Pinnock coming in as his backup. Officially, Ashtyn Davis is the SS2 behind Jordan Whitehead, with Will Parks coming in behind him.

Again, this depth chart is unofficial and does not have much meaning for training camp or beyond. Still, it’s interesting to see how the Jets listed their players for the first time.
