The New York Giants released their first (unofficial) regular season depth chart on Tuesday and it came without too many surprises.

However, that’s not to say there weren’t one or two.

Veteran Nate Solder, who opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19, is listed as the starting right tackle over Matt Peart. And while that hasn’t officially been announced by head coach Joe Judge, it is the direction the team appeared to be heading in recent weeks.

Peart, although he put in a lot of work this offseason, had struggled throughout the summer while Solder offered a more consistent presence.

Those roles are obviously subject to change come Sunday, but given the fierce pass rush the Giants are poised to face over the first two weeks, Judge may feel more comfortable with the veteran protecting Daniel Jones.

Meanwhile, the unofficial depth chart also lists second-year linebacker Tae Crowder as the starter alongside Blake Martinez and Austin Johnson as the starting nose tackle.

Wide receiver C.J. Board had been listed as the primary kick returner, but his contract was terminated before being re-signed to the practice squad. If promoted on gameday, he could still fill that role.

Finally, the Giants have safety Jabrill Peppers listed as their primary punt returner.
