The NY Jets head into 2022 with plenty of expectations from the fans, following a great offseason by general manager Joe Douglas, but from the outside looking in, not many around the league seem to be as confident as Jets fans seem to be.
Sure, this team is still young, and the quarterback at this point is still unproven, but given all the talent that's spread across both sides of the ball, it's hard to see this team not at least taking major strides forward.
Given how poor the Jets' record has been for the past 10 seasons, it makes sense why most NFL fans and pundits aren't looking at this team with a whole lot of confidence. But within Jets camp, all of that talk is being ignored.
The reason for that is all the depth and talent the Jets have at every position, but there are some players that are being especially overlooked by the wider NFL community. Today, we are going to take a look at five of those underrated players.
5. Corey Davis helps make the NY Jets wide receiver group special
When the Jets signed Corey Davis, the team imagined he could be the future No. 1 receiver on this roster. After an injury-riddled first campaign, however, he's become massively underrated. A bounce-back year should certainly be in the cards.
Since that point, the Jets have brought in Elijah Moore and Garrett Wilson, and with so much talk about the electric young receivers, Davis has almost been forgotten. But that may work to the Jets' advantage in 2022.
As of now, the Jets have three top-quality wide receivers that opposing defenses have to account for, but with Davis' size, athleticism and experience, if he can stay healthy, he could have a career year in 2022.
Overall, Davis will likely never reach elite status in the NFL, but he's better than he is given credit for. With the talent on this Jets offense this year, a Pro Bowl shouldn't be out of reach for the former Titans' first-round pick.
