The NY Jets have managed to find a few undrafted gems in recent years, with players like Bryce Huff, Zonovan Knight, and Tony Adams carving out roles with the team. They're hoping that's the case again this year.

This year's Jets undrafted class is one of the largest they've put together in recent memory. The Jets signed 13 rookies in the hours following the 2023 NFL Draft and added two more standouts from their rookie minicamp to bring the total of undrafted rookies on the Jets' roster to 15.

Of course, not all of them will stick around with the team. While some will undoubtedly earn a place on the practice squad or even active roster, others face an uphill battle to make it past the preseason.

That said, which Jets undrafted rookies stand the best chance of making the initial 53-man roster? Let's take a look at five potential candidates.

5. T.J. Luther, WR, NY Jets

The Jets signed a whopping four undrafted wide receivers this year, including rookie minicamp standout Jerome Kapp. That suggests the team believes one of these receivers could make the 53-man roster.

Perhaps that player will be Gardner-Webb product T.J. Luther. The Jets reportedly beat out numerous teams to sign Luther, who was a hot commodity in the moments following the draft.

A projected late-round pick, Luther ran a speedy 4.45 40-yard dash at his pro day and racked up over 1,000 yards as a senior in college. His experience as both a kick returner and on special teams could help him secure a spot as well.

The Athletic's Zack Rosenblatt gave Luther the third-highest odds of any Jets undrafted rookie to make the 53-man roster this year. While I won't go quite that high, Luther definitely has a chance to stick around if he impresses this summer.
