These Players Are the Current Starters on Offense for the Jets

With the NFL Draft done, what does the current depth chart for the Jets look like on offense? If the season began today, these would likely be the starters.

QB Geno Smith
RB Matt Forte
WR Brandon Marshall
WR Eric Decker
WR Kenbrell Thompkins
TE Jace Amaro
LT Ryan Clady
LG James Carpenter
C Nick Mangold
RG Brian Winters

Now a starting lineup only means so much. The Jets have guys who will see plenty of snaps as the team adapts personnel. Not every job is a lock.

At quarterback, Smith would lose the starting job instantly if Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signs.

I think Thompkins currently holds the third receiver spot due to Devin Smith's injury situation.

The Jets insisted Amaro would be a h-back type last year rather than a traditional tight end. I see him getting the most snaps at the position with so little supporting talent on the team, though.

The entire right side of the line is also a question mark. Any number of young players could potentially take the starting job away from Winters, while Giacomini is still a potential salary cap casualty.
