The dust has settled from a hectic weekend for the Jacksonville Jaguars and all NFL teams as a matter of fact. 

The Jaguars had to let go of more than 30 players in order to get their roster down to 53 men. 
Now let’s look at the team’s depth chart since the transactions are done and see where everyone stands. 

  1. David Garrard
  2. Blaine Gabbert
  3. Luke McCown
Quick Take: Garrard is the starter for now but will be on a short leash. The real question is Gabbert or McCown take over for him i
f he struggles. It seemed like McCown would be that guy when he took second-string snaps in the preseason finale but the depth chart says something different. 

Running Back

  1. Maurice Jones-Drew
  2. Deji Karim
  3. Montell Owens 

Quick Take: No surprises here with Rashad Jennings out for the seas

on. Brock Bolen and Greg Jones can tote the ball too. 


  1. Greg Jones
  2. Brock Bolen

Quick Take: Jones is one of the game's best. Bolen is a capable backup, as is Owens. 

Wide Receiver

  1. Mike Thomas
  2. Cecil Shorts
  3. Jamar Newsome


  1. Jason Hill
  2. Jarett Dillard
  3. Kassim Osgood 

Quick Take: Thomas and Hill were both expected to be the starters but it will be interesting to see who the primary slot receiver is. It looks like it'll be Shorts for now.

Offensive Line


  1. Eugene Monroe
  2. Cameron Bradfield


  1. Will Rackley
          1. Jason Spitz


          1. Brad Meester
          2. John Estes


          1. Uche Nwaneri
          2. Jason Spitz


          1. Eben Britton
          2. Guy Whimper

          Quick Take: It's a fairly young line for the Jaguars. Bradfield, an undrafted rookie from Grand Rapids, has an important role as M

          onroe's backup but seemed competent this preseason. Spitz is listed as a backup but will get a lot of time with his versatility. Could the team really not do any better than Guy Whimper? Britton better be healthy.

          Tight End

          1. Marcedes Lewis
          2. Zach Miller
          3. Zach Potter

          Quick Take: The usual suspects with Lewis and Miller. Potter wasn't a surprise either at No.3

          Defense End


          1. Aaron Kampman
          2. Matt Roth 


          1. Jeremy Mincey
          2. Austen Lane

          Quick Take: Roth was brought in to start but Mincey's pass-rush ability and strong preseason propelled him to starting right end. Expect there to be a lot of moving around though.

          Defensive Tackle

          1. Tyson Alualu
          2. Leger Douzable
          3. Nate Collins


          1. Terrance Knighton
          2. C.J. Mosley

          Quick Take: Douzable and Collins had great pre seasons and made the roster because of it. The starters here are rock solid and the depth isn't shaky either. 



          1. Darryl Smith
          2. Kyle Bosworth


          1. Paul Posluszny
          2. Russell Allen


          1. Clint Session
          2. Kyle Bosworth

          Quick Take: This is how we thought the starters would look and Allen's experience makes him a reliable backup. 

          Defense Back


          1. Derek Cox
          2. William Middleton
          3. Kevin Rutland


          1. Courtney Greene
          2. Dwight Lowery
          3. Rod Issac


          1. Dawan Landry
          2. Chris Prosinski


          1. Rashean Mathis
          2. Drew Coleman

          Quick Take: This has the makings of a pretty solid group if everyone can live up to their potential. Greene is starting over the newly acquired Lowery for the time being and Prosinski has found himself on the two-deep even though he missed a lot of the preseason.

          Special Teams


          1. Josh Scobee


          1. Matt Turk


          1. Matt Turk


          1. Cecil Shorts
          2. Mike Thomas


          1. Deji Karim
          2. Jamar Newsome


          1. Jeremy Cain
          2. Russell Allen

          Quick Take: Shorts earns the starting punt return job as a rookie. Newsome will get some looks as a kickoff returner and that might have helped him make the roster.
