2. Micheal Clemons, DE, NY Jets

Micheal Clemons is on this list for a very different reason. Unlike most of the other boisterous, bombastic personalities on this list, Clemons steals the show in other ways.

His quiet, intimidating demeanor has cultivated a cult following amongst Jets fans. Clemons has a stoic demeanor to him that's made even more terrifying when his bellowing voice is heard.

He's a man of few words, which typically wouldn't serve well on a show like "Hard Knocks," but there's just something about him that makes him one of the most fascinating players on the Jets' roster.

I'm not sure there's a player on the Jets I'm looking forward to seeing on "Hard Knocks" more than Micheal Clemons. Soon the entire NFL world will be introduced to the most captivating individual on the Jets' roster.

1. Aaron Rodgers, QB, NY Jets

Sometimes the obvious answer is also the correct one. The Jets were selected to appear on "Hard Knocks" this year primarily because of Aaron Rodgers. He's the sell. He's the ratings draw.

Rodgers has long been one of the most headline-garnering, noteworthy players in the NFL — for better or worse. His antics in recent years have only served to further that notion.

Rodgers might hate the media attention, but he's not going to be able to escape it this summer. There will be cameras and microphones in his face at all times, hoping to catch an elusive, headline-worthy soundbite.

Aaron Rodgers is going to be the star of the show this summer, whether he likes it or not. Fans will tune in to see the future Hall of Famer interact with his new environment. It promises to be must-see television.
