Jaguars projected depth chart: Who starts where after cuts?

New, comments
Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars finally cut their roster down to 53 players and now we can get a better idea of who's going to start where and who's going to backup who. I don't think this is the final final 53-man roster, as I wouldn't be shocked if they claimed some people before noon on Sunday, which is the deadline for waiver claims. Any player who was subject to waivers and is not claimed by that time becomes a street free agent and can be signed by anyone. For those wondering, players like Josh Sitton who are vested veterans, are not subject to waivers until after the NFL trade deadline.

Anyway, here's my guess as to what the depth chart will look like:

OFFENSE:

QB: Blake Bortles, Chad Henne, Brandon Allen
RB: Chris Ivory, TJ Yeldon, Denard Robinson, Corey Grant, Joe Banyard
TE: Julius Thomas, Marcedes Lewis, Ben Koyack, Neal Sterling
WR-1: Allen Robinson
WR-2: Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee
WR-3: Marqise Lee, Rashad Greene, Bryan Walters
LT: Kelvin Beachum, Josh Wells
LG: Luke Joeckel, Chris Reed
C: Brandon Linder, Tyler Shatley
RG: AJ Cann, Patrick Omameh
RT: Jermey Parnell, Patrick Omameh

DEFENSE:

LEO: Dante Fowler, Jr., Yannick Ngakoue, Chris Smith
NT: Roy Miller, Abry Jones
3T: Malik Jackson, Sen'Derrick Marks, Sheldon Day
5T: Jared Odrick, Tyson Alualu
WLB: Telvin Smith, Myles Jack, Hayes Pullard
MLB: Paul Posluszny, Myles Jack, Hayes Pullard
OTTO: Dan Skuta, Myles Jack, Hayes Pullard
CB: Jalen Ramsey, Prince Amukamara, Aaron Colvin
CB: Davon House, Dwayne Gratz, Josh Johnson
Nickel: Jalen Ramsey, Aaron Colvin, Josh Johnson
FS: Tashaun Gipson, Peyton Thompson
SS: Johnathan Cyprien, Jarrod Wilson

KR: Corey Grant, Denard Robinson
