New York Jets 53 Man Roster Prediction – June Edition

Joe Caporoso with a June 53 man roster prediction for the New York Jets

An updated New York Jets 53 man roster prediction as they wrap up day one of minicamp…

Quarterback (3)

I have a feeling we are going to see all of these guys start at some point in 2017.

Running Back (3)

Forte remains comically out of place on this roster. The Jets will utilize their tight ends or H-Backs when looking for a lead blocker.

Tight Ends (4)

Seferian-Jenkins is suspended the first two games. Considering their lack of a fullback, it would not surprise me if the Jets still kept four tight ends for most of the season.

Wide Receiver (6)

Marshall is suspended the first four games of the season, so you could see a player like Chris Harper, KD Cannon or Gabe Marks stick initially over him.

Offensive Line (9)

  • Kelvin Beachum
  • James Carpenter
  • Wesley Johnson
  • Brian Winters
  • Brandon Shell
  • Brent Qvale
  • Ben Ijalana
  • Dakota Dozier
  • Jonotthan Harrison

To say the depth is concerning wound be an understatement.

Defensive Line (6)

  • Muhammad Wilkerson
  • Leonard Williams
  • Steve McLendon
  • Deon Simon
  • Sheldon Richardson
  • Lawrence Thomas

Richardson is still a candidate to get traded this summer or by the deadline, if the right deal comes along.

Linebacker (9)

  • Darron Lee
  • Demario Davis
  • Bruce Carter
  • Spencer Paysinger
  • Josh Martin
  • Lorenzo Mauldin
  • Jordan Jenkins
  • Dylan Donahue
  • Corey Lemonier

A group of below average veterans and young, unproven players. All eyes are on Lee to take major strides in year two.

Cornerback (6)

  • Morris Claiborne
  • Buster Skrine
  • Marcus Williams
  • Juston Burris
  • Daryl Roberts
  • Jeremy Clark

Can Claiborne and Skrine stay healthy? 

Safety (4)

All youth. Miles will fit better as the third safety than Calvin Pryor would have.

Specialists (3)

  • Chandler Catanzaro
  • Lachlan Edwards
  • Tanner Purdum

Ross Martin has a decent shot to unseat Catanzaro.

“Last season was not great for the Jets. Ryan Fitzpatrick returned but couldn’t do much, same for Geno Smith, who’s now left for the Giants. But, this team is looking fresher this year. A lot of rookies and new players are showing what they got in the training camps and they still have guys like Quincy Enunwa and Muhammad Wilkerson to guide the new guys. The only thing that looks unstable right now is the QB position. Josh McCown seems like the favorite to take the spot, but Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg could surprise the coaches during the camps. Even though they stand at +8000 in the online sportsbetting odds to win Super Bowl LII, things can always change once the season starts.” says line director at, David Strauss.
