With training camps now in full swing, predicting the final cuts could be a tough chore. Here’s what the New York Jets roster will look like.

1authorrob3 - New York Jets: Predicting The 53-Man Depth ChartQuarterback, edge rusher, offensive line and safety – the positions Todd Bowles and Mike Maccagnan have some concern over heading into the 2015 NFL season.

First and foremost, the progression of quarterback Geno Smith is hot-button issue number one. The third-year pro out of West Virginia has been, well, less stellar with the New York Jets.1jets22 - New York Jets: Predicting The 53-Man Depth Chart

Starting 30-games, Smith possesses a dreadful 25-34 TD/INT ratio as well as eight lost fumbles. This incredible number of 42 turnovers wouldn’t even allow the 1985 Chicago Bears a chance to succeed.

So, although Maccagnan produced mini-miracles during the offseason with the acquisitions of Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, Buster Skrine and Brandon Marshall, the nagging question of who would fill the void at the most important position of all of professional sports remains hotly contested.

That was, until, training camp got underway.

Everything coming out of Florham Park, NJ has Smith’s resume glowing. His play on the field has been solid, his leadership has seemingly taken a step forward, and teammates such as Eric Decker are speaking highly about the 24-year old QB.

Everything Bowles and Chan Gailey preach revolves around command of the offense. Only time will tell whether Rex Ryan is that true quarterback-killer many Jets fans think he is.

Still, despite how critical Smith’s play will be in 2015, there are 53 jobs up for audition. Starters will shake out at those positions of concern, but livelihoods will be made or broken based on special teams and depth.

Here is our prediction on the New York Jets final 53-man depth chart:
