New York Giants release first unofficial depth chart

New, comments

Let’s see how it corresponds to what we have been putting together

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.

Offense

WR

Odell Beckham

Geremy Davis, Tavarres King

Roger Lewis, Darius Powe

Anthony Dable

Comment As I have expected this chart shows Dable lagging behind.

LT

Ereck Flowers

Byron Stingily

Jake Rodgers

LG

Justin Pugh

Ryan Seymour

Brett Jones

C

Weston Richburg

Shane McDermott

Adam Gettis

RG

John Jerry

Emmett Cleary

Dillon Farrell

RT

Marshall Newhouse

Bobby Hart

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.

TE

Larry Donnell

Will Tye

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.

QB

Eli Manning

Ryan Nassib

Logan Thomas

WR

Sterling Shepard

Victor Cruz, Dwayne Harris

Myles White, K.J.Maye

Kadron Boone

RB

Rashad Jennings

Shane Vereen, Andre Williams

Orleans Darkwa, Paul Perkins

BobbyRainey, Marshaun Coprich

FB

Nikita Whitlock

Comment: I just have a bad feeling Whitlock, popular though he is, will not make this team.

Defense

LDE

Jason Pierre-Paul

Kerry Wynn

Romeo Okwara

LDT

Damon Harrison

Greg Milhouse

Jermelle Cudjo

Louis Nix III

Comment: Things just don’t look good for Nix.

RDT

Johnathan Hankins

Davon Coleman

Montori Hughes

Jay Bromley (PUP)

Comment: Interesting that Coleman is ahead of Hughes.

RDE

Olivier Vernon

Owamagbe Odighizuwa

Stansley Maponga

Mike Rose

SLB

Devon Kennard

Mark Herzlich

Brad Bars

MLB

Jasper Brinkley

Kelvin Sheppard

B.J. Goodson

WLB

Jonathan Casillas

Keenan Robinson

Ishaq Williams

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.

LCB

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Eli Apple

Leon Hall

Donte Deayon

Comment: The Giants chart did not include slot corner, so this is a bit skewed. Hall, Trevin Wade and Deayon are slot guys.

SS

Landon Collins

Nat Berhe

Andrew Adams

Justin Currie

FS

Darian Thompson

Cooper Taylor

Mykkele Thompson

Bennett Jackson

Comment: Berhe is now considered a backup to Collins rather than a challenger to Thompson. That is noteworthy.

RCB

Janoris Jenkins

Trevin Wade

Leon McFadden

Michael Hunter, Matt Smalley
