Please remember, this is unofficial. These are generally done by public relations with some input from the coaching staff, and they often don’t match what we see during practice. In what you will read below, that is the case in a few spots.
Let’s go through the chart nonetheless.
Giants 2023 Depth Chart — Offense
|WR||Isaiah Hodgins||Jalin Hyatt|
|WR||Darius Slayton||Sterling Shepard|
|WR||Parris Campbell||Wan'Dale Robinson|
|RT||Evan Neal||Matt Peart|
|RG||Mark Glowinski||Josh Ezeudu|
|C||John Michael Schmitz||Shane Lemieux|
|LG||Ben Bredeson||Shane Lemieux|
|LT||Andrew Thomas||Matt Peart|
|RB||Saquon Barkley||Matt Breida||Gary Brightwell, Eric Gray|
|TE||Darren Waller||Daniel Bellinger||Lawrence Cager|
|QB||Daniel Jones||Tyrod Taylor|
The first thing that jumps out is that rookie John Michael Schmitz is listed as the starting center, with Ben Bredeson at left guard. I believe Schmitz will end up in that role, but Bredeson was No. 1 center Saturday and Monday, so that spot is not completely settled.
Bredeson and Josh Ezeudu are also competing at left guard. Bredeson is probably favored to win that job if he isn’t the starting center, but that is hardly a given. It’s kind of silly that the chart lists Ezeudu as a backup at right guard. I haven’t seen him take a snap there yet this summer.
The fact that the Giants list Sterling Shepard as an outside receiver just is confirmation of how deep they are in the slot.
Giants 2023 Depth Chart — Defense
|NT||Dexter Lawrence||Rakeem Nunez-Roches||Jordon Riley|
|DT||Leonard Williams||A'Shawn Robinson||D.J. Davidson|
|Rush||Kayvon Thibodeaux||Boogie Basham|
|DE||Azeez Ojulari||Jihad Ward|
|MLB||Bobby Okereke||Carter Coughlin|
|WILL||Micah McFadden||Isaiah Simmons||Cam Brown|
|LCB||Tre Hawkins III||Nick McCloud|
|RCB||Deonte Banks||Cor'Dale Flott|
|Slot CB||Adoree' Jackson||Darnay Holmes|
|SS||Jason Pinnock||Dane Belton||Bobby McCain|
|FS||Xavier McKinney||Gervarrius Owens|
What I have done here is listed the positions, like ‘Rush’ and ‘DE’, the way the team has them listed.
Darnay Holmes is shown as the starting slot cornerback, but that is anything but certain.
Darrian Beavers is listed as the starting WILL, and I do believe that is how this will turn out, but he is still competing with Micah McFadden.
Jason Pinnock is listed as the starter at strong safety, and that has been clear for a while when watching practice.
Giants 2023 Depth Chart — Special Teams
|PR||Eric Gray||Darnay Holmes||Darius Slayton|
|KOR||Eric Gray||Gary Brightwell|
The primary thing to note here is rookie running back Eric Gray being listed as the punt returner. He might end up with both the punt and kickoff return jobs.
