We have been making our own educated guesses at an unofficial depth chart for the New York Giants. Well, in advance of Friday’s preseason opener against the Miami Dolphins the Giants have released their own unofficial depth chart.
Realize that this depth chart is unofficial because it is not compiled by the coaching staff. Rather, it comes from the PR Dept. It gives us something to discuss, though, so let’s go through it.
Geremy Davis, Tavarres King
Roger Lewis, Darius Powe
Comment As I have expected this chart shows Dable lagging behind.
Comment: When I look at this offensive line depth chart it reminds me of something I have been thinking for a while — former CFL’er Brett Jones really appears to be back-sliding out of the Giants’ plans. Also of note, per Pat Traina Hart did get his first live reps with the first team on Saturday. So, there’s that.
Will Johnson, Matt LaCosse
Jerell Adams, Ryan Malleck
This shows deference to Donnell based on his experience. I still believe Tye is the starter when the season opens.
Victor Cruz, Dwayne Harris
Myles White, K.J.Maye
Shane Vereen, Andre Williams
Orleans Darkwa, Paul Perkins
BobbyRainey, Marshaun Coprich
Comment: I just have a bad feeling Whitlock, popular though he is, will not make this team.
Louis Nix III
Comment: Things just don’t look good for Nix.
Jay Bromley (PUP)
Comment: Interesting that Coleman is ahead of Hughes.
J.T. Thomas III (PUP)
Comment: Very interesting to see Robinson listed as a WILL and not a MIKE, though I suspect we could still see him in the middle.
Comment: The Giants chart did not include slot corner, so this is a bit skewed. Hall, Trevin Wade and Deayon are slot guys.
Comment: Berhe is now considered a backup to Collins rather than a challenger to Thompson. That is noteworthy.
Michael Hunter, Matt Smalley
