The NY Jets officially held their 10th and final OTA practice of the spring on Friday, thus concluding the last voluntary portion of the team's offseason program.

The Jets will host a three-day mandatory minicamp from June 11-13 next week before taking a month off prior to the start of training camp in late July. Minicamp will be the final stretch of spring practices before the summer arrives.

Only three of the 10 OTA practices were open to the media, but there was still quite a bit of information to take away from the spring. Some players rose to the occasion and improved their stock while others didn't exactly help their case.

Consider this your New York Jets stock report following OTAs. Let's take a look at some of the biggest winners and losers from the Jets' spring practices.

Winner: Braelon Allen, RB, NY Jets

Perhaps no player was more impressive at Jets OTAs this spring than rookie running back Braelon Allen. With Breece Hall sidelined due to a minor injury, Allen took full advantage of the opportunity, firmly establishing himself as the team's top backup behind Hall.

The Jets are high on Allen's upside and believe he and Hall could form one of the better backfield duos in the NFL. While fellow rookie Isaiah Davis also impressed and even Tarik Cohen made a few plays, it was abundantly clear that Allen was the top healthy running back at OTAs.

Allen flashed his versatility as a pass catcher, including a leaping grab on a 50/50 ball from Tyrod Taylor this past week. It was the final touch on what had been a very encouraging couple of weeks for the young running back.

Allen now enters the summer as the odds-on favorite to win the Jets' RB2 job, and if he carries over that momentum into the season, he could carve out an important role in the Jets' offense.
