NY Jets Roster Odds And Ends

The initial NY Jets depth cart and practice squad.

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Below you will find the NY Jets initial depth charts for the start of the regular season, as well as the full practice squad roster.

A few things of note.  Big Vlad Ducasse has won the starting left guard position over Brian Winters.  Scott and Crackback will no doubt be stoked.

Antonio Allen has won the starting safety nod over Jaiquawn Jarrett.  I'm not sure anyone will be stoked about that.  Jarrett may not be a great option, but Allen is horrific in coverage.  He was repeatedly burned in the passing game during the preseason.  This will likely be a favored point of attack for every Jets opponent this year.

Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith are both still listed as #1.  So it may be that Sanchez is not quite yet as relegated to backup status as many of us hope.  We'll see what happens when Sanchez's health improves.

There are only 3 inside LBs listed on the roster.  This is a point of serious lack of depth.  When the QB position becomes clearer and we presumably cut down to 3 QBs one way or another, Danny Lansanah stands a good chance of earning the first promotion off the practice squad.

Likewise, until Coples is healthy there is a serious lack of depth behind Wilkerson and Richardson, with Leger Douzable presumably the next guy up if either one of those guys goes down.   The curious decision to retain 2 nose tackles on the practice squad, neither one of which appear capable of taking on the role of either Wilkerson or Richardson, makes me wonder why the Jets failed to find somebody for the practice squad who could back up those two positions.

So, what about you?  What about the depth chart and/or the practice squad do you find noteworthy?
