4. Adrian Amos, S, NY Jets

When the Jets signed veteran safety Adrian Amos earlier this year, the assumption was that he was being brought in to replace the injured Chuck Clark. Most assumed that Amos was in line to start opposite Jordan Whitehead.

Right now, that seems unlikely. Former undrafted free agent Tony Adams has been one of the most impressive players in camp for the Jets, and he seems to be the frontrunner for the starting job.

Much like with Kuntz, it's not as if Amos has had a bad summer. It's that his direct competition, Adams, has shown more. The Jets' coaching staff is really high on Adams, and they believe he could be a long-term starting piece.

Amos has the experience, but he's been outplayed while working with the second-team defense this summer. His stock is down.

3. Billy Turner, OT, NY Jets

Billy Turner may still be the favorite to start at right tackle come Week 1, but that doesn't mean his stock is trending in the right direction. The Jets' offensive tackles have struggled mightily this summer, and Turner is a primary reason for that.

The nine-year NFL veteran has been arguably the weakest link of the Jets' offensive line in training camp, regularly getting beat at both left and right tackle.

His history with Nathaniel Hackett gives him the edge over his competition, but the Jets don't seem thrilled with the way Turner has performed. It might not be long before we see the team pull the break-glass-in-case-of-emergency card and shift Alijah Vera-Tucker over to right tackle.

Turner is the de facto starter for the moment, but he's done little to inspire confidence.
