QB- Byron Leftwich, David Garrard, Quinn Gray, Tim Couch, Lester Ricard
No real surprises here. Based upon what we're witnessed in camp, Leftwich
and Garrard are locks, with Gray and Couch battling for the third string
job. Gray is probably the better player right now, but his $1.2 million
salary is excessive for a number three guy.
Jack certainly has the first two correct, and it's fairly obvious that
barring any unforeseen injury, Pearman and Toefield will be fighting for one
spot. D.D. Terry hasn't turned out to be as good as I advertised.
Jones is definitely the number one, but at this point I would give Owens a very slight edge over
Okay, please let the fabrications begin. Jack Del Rio refuses to put
rookies at the top of any depth charts, so take this with a grain of salt.
Realistically, Wilford is definitely on the bubble, and the knee injury that
he suffered yesterday can't help his case. At this point, Jones would be on
top out of this group with Broussard, Wilford, Woods, and Kiser rounding it
Interesting. This wide receiver position certainly seems loaded in
comparison to the other spot. Based on camp production, this would read:
Northcutt, Walker, Williams, Farris, and Sharon, but your likely opening day
starter will be Reggie Williams. Each of the five have a legitimate shot at
making the roster, but unfortunately either Sharon or Farris, or both will
not make it.
Okay, here's where the coach gets a little tricky on us again.
Lewis is clearly the number one TE, but I expect to see either Wiggins or
Estandia handle the number two duties. Wrighster has been injured, and is
not a lock to make the roster. Better luck next year for Richard Angulo.
Can't argue with this.
Barring injury, Barnes will be the starter, followed by Collier, Gutekunst
gets the international practice squad exemption.
One for three isn't too bad. Vince Manuwai is clearly the starter, but the fifth-round draft pick, Uche
Nwaneri will likely push, and get a roster spot as a backup. McMahon may be
able to make the practice squad.
With Meester's injury, Dennis Norman has been catapulted to number one status on the depth chart.
Connolly is a talented guy, but he may become a victim of numbers this
No major surprises here,
Naeole played the '06 season at a Pro-Bowl level. McDougle and Gibbons will
both be fighting for a roster spot.
With the acquisition of
Pasos, Mo Williams has been relegated to backup duties. Williams saved his
job by taking a paycut this season, and Carnahan will be somewhat of a
long-shot to make the roster.
LDE- Bobby McCray, Brent Hawkins, Kenny Pettway, Jeremy Mincey
surprises here, but Hawkins is very close to McCray. Pettway has exceeded
expectations up to this point, and even Mincey has made some plays.
Can't argue with the coach here.
Curry will have to do some extraordinary things to make this roster.
Henderson is the best in the
business, and we can't really argue with McDaniel being slotted ahead of
Landri at this point. All three have looked very good, and all three will
likely make the roster.
Hayward has looked solid coming off his Achilles injury, and Spicer hasn't
practiced much at all. Wyche has been a beast, and may supplant Spicer.
Smith appears to be headed to the IR.
I can't argue with this trio.
Thomas has been somewhat of a forgotten man, as he missed the '06 season,
but is playing fairly well in camp. Cordova must do something special to
make this roster.
Peterson has looked great,
Greisen is solid. Gilbert will need to play very well on special teams in
the preseason to collect a paycheck here.
Realistically, Smith is the
starter, Durant is his backup. Iwuh has looked good in spots, but it's
doubtful that he can compete with the second round pick.
I can't argue with this pairing either. Starks will compete for the nickel
job, Thornton and Landrom are likely still a year away.
Williams is of course the starter, but Dee Webb is having a fine camp, and
will push Terry Cousin for his roster spot. Moulton seems to be out of his
league thus far.
been penciled in as the starter, but the competition is wide open after
that. Gattis and Nkang are likely battling it out for the backup role, and
McCadam needs something good to happen to him in the preseason games to
notch a spot.
Hmmm. If the Jaguars have to
play a game with Nick Sorensen as their starting free safety, they're in
trouble. Nelson was drafted first, he will start, Fudge will likely make
