The Jacksonville Jaguars released the initial official 2019 depth chart on Tuesday, leading up to practice for their Week 1 meeting against the Kansas City Chiefs.
There are one or two things that caught our eye, but largely the depth chart is about what we expected it to be throughout the preseason. It’s really only the bottom of the roster that has anything of note.
Here’s a few quick thoughts.
WR: 12 Dede Westbrook 18 Chris Conley 84 Keelan Cole
LT: 74 Cam Robinson 77 Cedric Ogbuehi
LG: 68 Andrew Norwell 70 Brandon Thomas
C: 65 Brandon Linder 69 Tyler Shatley
RG: 60 A.J. Cann/76 Will Richardson Jr.
RT: 75 Jawaan Taylor
TE: 87 Geoff Swaim 89 Josh Oliver
WR: 11 Marqise Lee 17 DJ Chark Jr. 16 C.J. Board
QB: 7 Nick Foles 15 Gardner Minshew
RB: 27 Leonard Fournette 23 Ryquell Armstead 24 Tyler Ervin/33 Devine Ozigbo
TE: 80 James O’Shaughnessy 88 Seth DeValve
The only thing really of note is that Will Richardson and A.J. Cann are co-starting at right guard. We really won’t know who’s getting the start until later in the week, but my money would be on Richardson.
DE 91 Yannick Ngakoue 41 Josh Allen 55 Lerentee McCray
NT 95 Abry Jones 98 Dontavius Russell
DT 99 Marcell Dareus 90 Taven Bryan
DE 93 Calais Campbell 94 Dawuane Smoot
WLB 56 Quincy Williams 57 D.J. Alexander
MLB 44 Myles Jack 52 Najee Goode
SLB 48 Leon Jacobs 43 Joe Giles-Harris
LCB 20 Jalen Ramsey 25 D.J. Hayden 31 Breon Borders
FS 26 Jarrod Wilson 42 Andrew Wingard
SS 36 Ronnie Harrison 22 Cody Davis
RCB 21 A.J. Bouye 37 Tre Herndon 29 Josh Robinson
I didn’t know which of Tre Herndon or Breon Border would get the dime back spot, but it looks like the team went with Herndon. The team sticking with a nose tackle spot in their starting lineup is smart. Abry Jones is the second best interior defensive lineman on the team. Also... Taven Bryan isn’t starting which is hilarious.
PK 4 Josh Lambo
P 9 Logan Cooke
H 9 Logan Cooke
LS 46 Matthew Orzech
PR 12 Dede Westbrook/24 Tyler Ervin 11 Marqise Lee 29 Josh Robinson
KR 17 DJ Chark Jr./24 Tyler Ervin 11 Marqise Lee 84 Keelan Cole
Here are where the only real “surprises” are. It would seem that waiver wire pickup Tyler Ervin is co-starting at both returner spots, depending on how much they want to subject starting wide receiver Dede Westbrook to special teams reps.
