4. Chazz Surratt, LB, NY Jets

Chazz Surratt exited Thursday's game early with a hamstring injury, but he made sure to make the most of his opportunities before that. Surratt helped force a fumble alongside Jamien Sherwood in the first quarter and responded with an interception of Kellen Mond two possessions later.

Surratt finished the game with three tackles and was at least partially responsible for both of the Jets' takeaways on the night. Not a bad first game for the former third-round pick.

Surratt spent all of last season on the Jets' practice squad after he was released by the Minnesota Vikings as part of final roster cuts. In a razor-thin linebacker corps, Surratt has a chance to stick around on the 53-man roster.

While it might be difficult for him to push for a starting job, don't be surprised if Surratt sneaks onto to the roster as one of the team's backup linebackers. He's putting together an impressive summer.

3. Zach Wilson, QB, NY Jets

Zach Wilson only played one quarter for the Jets on Thursday, but in that quarter, he reminded everyone exactly why he was drafted second overall just two years ago.

Wilson finished 3-of-5 for 65 yards with short completions to Kenny Yeboah and Israel Abanikanda, but it was his beautiful 57-yard bomb to Malik Taylor that fans will be talking about.

Wilson unleashed a gorgeous pass down the left sideline to an open Taylor who had gotten behind the defense. If Taylor doesn't slow down, there's a chance he was gone. It was that good of a throw.

The rest of Wilson's night was rather forgettable, including an airmailed ball to undrafted wideout Xavier Gipson. But Wilson deserves a spot on this list just for that one throw.
