New York Jets Current Projected Starting Lineup

New, comments
USA TODAY Sports

Below is the latest addition of what the Jets would look like if the season started today. This lineup is composed only of players currently under contract. Guys like Jeff Cumberland and Austin Howard aren't here because they have not signed their tenders and could in theory end up signing with another team. Once Howard signs, he will take over right tackle, and Willie Colon will slide inside to guard. This is not meant to be a final list, only offering a snapshot of where we are today.

Our last projected starting lineup took place March 5, a week before free agency began. The starter in our last lineup will be in parenthesis.

Offense

QB: David Garrard (Mark Sanchez)

RB: Bilal Powell (Powell)

FB: Lex Hilliard (John Griffin)

WR: Santonio Holmes (Holmes)

WR: Stephen Hill (Hill)

TE: Konrad Reuland (Reuland)

T: D'Brickashaw Ferguson (Ferguson)

G: Vladimir Ducasse (Dennis Landolt)

C: Nick Mangold (Mangold)

G: Caleb Schlauderaff (Schlauderaff)

T: Willie Colon (Ducasse)

Defense:

DE: Quinton Coples (Coples)

NT: Antonio Garay (Sione Pouha)

DE: Muhammad Wilkerson (Wilkerson)

OLB: Antwan Barnes (Ricky Sapp)

ILB: David Harris (Harris)

ILB: Demario Davis (Davis)

OLB: Garrett McIntyre (McIntyre)

CB: Darrelle Revis (Revis)

CB: Antonio Cromartie (Cromartie)

S: Josh Bush (Bush)

S: Antonio Allen (Allen)

What you have here is a team that is a bit better but still looking pretty bad. The good news is more signings and the Draft will happen, allowing the Jets to upgrade their talent base. The bad news is there are so many bad points that the Jets are going to have some extremely weak links starting.
