The NY Jets received near-universal praise for their star-studded 2022 NFL Draft class which included three first-rounders and a number of other players the team hopes will make a significant impact early in their respective careers. .
But the team’s work didn’t stop with the conclusion of the repechage. Far from there.
The Jets scoured the pool of undrafted players within hours of the draft and managed to sign five rookies to official contracts. They then added a sixth after the conclusion of their rookie minicamp.
It’s a small collection of undrafted players compared to years past and other teams in the league. It’s a good thing for the Jets, though, as it’s a direct representation of how far their roster has come over the past few years.
The Jets already have a number of depth and development players on their roster. They didn’t need to sign more than a handful of undrafted players.
Still, the Jets have had moderate success with undrafted rookies in the past. Players like Bryce Huff, Javelin Guidry and Isaiah Dunn were all drafted only to survive the final roster cuts in September.
Who could this player be this year? We rank the six undrafted rookies on the Jets’ roster in order of their chances of earning a spot on the 53-man roster.
