Some notes on the Jacksonville Jaguars’ first unofficial depth chart, released in advance of their preseason opener against the Giants on Friday night at EverBank Field. Take note, it’s common for seniority to determine close spots on paper at this stage.
C.J. Mosley is the second starting defensive tackle, ahead of Terrance Knighton, who missed offseason work and the first few days of training camp while recovering from an eye injury but returned to action at a light 330 pounds.
The chart doesn’t include Justin Blackmon, who just agreed to terms on Monday. Cecil Shorts heads the Z receivers, ahead of Mike Thomas and Lee Evans. We’ll have to see if Thomas is first in line in the slot when the Jaguars go to three-wide.
Rashean Mathis is the starter at left corner ahead of Aaron Ross. That’s not a surprise as he’s the longtime Jaguars veteran and Ross is a newly added free agent. The competition between the two is far from over. The guy who doesn’t win will be the nickel.
