The New York Giants have set, for now, their 53-man regular season roster. The first official depth chart will be released later this week, but that doesn't mean we have to wait for it. Let's take a look at what the unofficial depth chart looks like as the Giants begin preparations for their season-opener against the Dallas Cowboys.

This chart uses the positional listings from Giants.com. The only change made from the way the chart is constructed on the team's official web site is that I have Darian Thompson as a starter instead of Nat Berhe. We know that will be the case if Thompson, the rookie third-round pick, is ready to play.

One question will be who the backup running back for Rashad Jennings will be. That likely will be Orleans Darkwa, but we will have to wait to find out how the Giants will employ their backs.
