Bleacher Report recently picked every team’s breakout candidate and when it came to the New York Jets, they easily went with safety Jamal Adams.

The New York Jets might not have a roster filled up with above average top talent at every position but they have a decent amount of building pieces to have a brighter future. One such piece is safety Jamal Adams, who enjoyed a solid rookie season showing the potential of even greater things to come.

Bleacher Report recently picked a breakout candidate for every NFL team heading into the upcoming season. When it came to the Jets, they clearly went with Adams thanks to everything he brings to the table.

Written by Bleacher Report’s Brad Gagnon, he picked Adams since he’s been focused this offseason on honing his craft towards a bigger sophomore season with the Jets. He’s spent the past few months on a special nutrition program to lose weight in order to increase his speed and awareness.

All throughout organized team activities and mandatory minicamp, Adams has been getting rave reviews on how he’s a bit more detailed in his defensive ways. He’s picking things up quicker and is focus on not only getting better as a safety but finally getting his first interception in the pros out of the way.

Adams has yet to get his first interception but had several instances where it was right there for the taking. Whether it slipped out of his hands or he was simply just at the wrong place in order to haul it in, it’s all about the little things he’s focusing on to improve upon for next season based on these frustrating experiences.

Overall, expect to see Adams have another big year for the Jets and just like Gagnon wrote about, likely be one of the very few players on the team to enjoy a breakout season if everything falls into place. Adams is young and hungry for much more this time around with the Jets.
