SPECIAL TEAMS

K Nick Folk, Nick Novak
P T.J. Conley, Chris Bryan
H T.J. Conley, Chris Bryan
PR Jeremy Kerley, Kyle Wilson, Joe McKnight
KR Jeremy Kerley, Kyle Wilson, Antonio Cromartie
LS Tanner Purdum, Matt Mulligan

Analysis: No real surprises, except for maybe Conley ahead of Bryan. So far, Bryan has outpunted Conley ... Clearly, there are some depth issues on the offensive line and an inside linebacker ... Kerley is going to be a busy man ... Five experienced corners, always a plus in Rex Ryan's system ... Payne vs. Turner for the fifth receiver spot. Right now, Payne gets the edge because of special teams.
