2. Alijah Vera-Tucker is a future star for the NY Jets

The Jets took a gamble when they traded up to take the USC product in the 2021 NFL Draft, but after his rookie campaign, there shouldn't be any doubting that Alijah Vera-Tucker is a Pro Bowler in the making.

His move from left guard to right guard may have some concerned, but given the talent across this line, especially with the addition of Laken Tomlinson, there's no reason to believe that Vera-Tucker doesn't take a huge step forward this year.

Vera-Tucker had a fantastic rookie season, but he grew into the role as the season went on, and if he and George Fant can be a force on the right side of the line in 2022, then the Jets may have found the offensive line that can carry them back to the playoffs.

Madden had no respect for Vera-Tucker in their recent ratings, "rewarding" him with a 74 overall, but after 2022, we may be looking at a Pro Bowler ready to lead the Jets for years and years to come.

1. Quinnen Williams is the NY Jets' most underrated player

Quinnen Williams has had sky-high expectations on him from the day he arrived in the NFL, as being the No. 3 overall pick comes with plenty of pressure. While he hasn't yet broken out as a true superstar, Williams has quietly put together a few great seasons.

Now that the Jets have added plenty of help along this line, Williams will be expected to take his game to the next level. That's not a knock on the beginning of his career, however, as he's been great in a less-than-ideal situation.

Sure, Williams gets respect around the league, but like most Jets, it's never what he deserves, and if he can play to his full potential in 2022, we may see a breakout All-Pro year from the former Alabama stud.
