1. Trystan Colon, OL, NY Jets

The Jets overhauled their interior offensive line depth this offseason. They signed veteran Wes Schweitzer in free agency and drafted Joe Tippmann in the second round to compete with the recently re-signed Connor McGovern.

All three of McGovern, Tippmann, and Schweitzer split center reps with the first-team offense this spring, but there's another interior offensive lineman the Jets added this offseason.

The Jets also signed former Baltimore Ravens lineman Trystan Colon in March with the expectation that he would compete for one of the backup interior lineman spots on the roster.

The additions of Tippmann and Schweitzer and the decision to bring back McGovern make his road to a roster spot a difficult one, however.

The Jets are already pretty overloaded with roster-worthy offensive tackles. Duane Brown, Mekhi Becton, Max Mitchell, Billy Turner, and Carter Warren all seem likely to earn roster spots. That's already five offensive linemen.

Throw in Laken Tomlinson, Alijah Vera-Tucker, Tippmann, McGovern, and Schweitzer, and you have 10 linemen who seem like roster locks, if healthy. That leaves Colon as the odd man out.

Colon has experience playing center and guard and could be a valuable depth piece, but if everyone is healthy, it seems much more likely that the Jets try to sneak him onto their practice squad.

The Jets have a lot of offensive line depth, and Colon is just too buried on the depth chart.
