Quarterbacks- Geno smith, Mark Sanchez, Greg McElroy
There will be no surprises at the quarterback spot. The only thing now is who is going to start for the jets week one, Smith or Sanchez?
Running Backs- Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Mike Goodson, Joe McKnight, Tommy Bohanon
Even with Goodson's arrest I think he makes the team. McKnight seems motivated and I think Bohanon wins the starting fullback job with a strong training camp.
Wide Receivers- Santonio Holmes, Stephen hill, Jeremy Kerley, Zach Rodgers, Clyde Gates, Ben Obomanu
The sleeper in this group is Zach Rodgers, an un-drafted free agent from Tennessee. He has performed well so far, and I think he makes an impact. I would not be surprised if the Jets add a veteran.
Tight Ends- Jeff Cumberland, Hayden Smith, Konrad Reuland
The tight end position is weak, but I think Cumberland emerges out of the group. I think Reuland will have to fight to make it with a guy like Mike Shanahan out of Pittsburgh.
Offensive Line- Nick Mangold, D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Austin Howard, Brian winters, Willie Colon, Oday Aboushi, Stephen Peterman, Vladimir Ducasse, Caleb Schlauderaff
Compared to recent years, this unit has a ton of depth, I suspect Will campbell to be on the practice squad to start the season.
Defensive Line- Antonio Garay, Muhammad Wilkerson, Damon Harrison, Kenrick Ellis, Sheldon richardson
I think all of these guys are expected to make the team. The guy I could see breaking out is 2nd year kid Damon Harrison who was an UDFA.
Linebackers- David Harris, DeMario Davis, Ricky Sapp, Antonio Barnes, Garrett McIntyre, Nick Bellore, Josh Mauga, Quinton Coples, Calvin Pace
The Jets have a lot of depth at linebacker after moving Coples to OLB. I think Sapp, Barnes, McIntyre, and Pace, battle it out for playing time at linebacker.
Cornerbacks- Antonio Cromartie, Kyle Wilson, dee Milliner, Ellis Lankster, Isaiah Trufant, Eric Crocker
My surprise with the corners is Eric Crocker. Crocker was a beast in the AFl and has a good tool set. I think Isaiah Trufant could make a big impact this season.
Safeties- DaWan Landry, Josh Bush, Antonio Allen, Rontez Miles
These group outside of Landry is young, but I see Antonio Allen breaking through for the other safety job. UDFA Rontez miles is my sleeper in this group.
Kicker- Nick Folk
Punter- Robert Malone
Long Snapper- Tanner Purdum
