The NY Jets officially concluded their three-day mandatory minicamp on Wednesday bringing an end to the team's spring practices. Next stop: training camp.

Much like OTAs, the Jets kept things light during minicamp opting for a passing-exclusive set of practices that saw minimal contact and, in turn, minimal chance for injury.

Still, a number of players were able to make the most of their snaps and stand out amongst their peers. While it's always important to take spring practices with a grain of salt, the Jets have to be encouraged by the performances of the six players on this list.

With that, let's take a look at six of the biggest standouts from the Jets' mandatory minicamp.

6. Garrett Wilson, WR, NY Jets

Garrett Wilson had a relatively quiet OTAs period as the rookie wide receiver wasn't among those who shined the brightest. And while he was still overshadowed by a couple of wideouts during minicamp, he started to show signs of the player the Jets hope he could be.

The highlight of his minicamp was a brilliant leaping grab he made on Tuesday in which he skied into the air, twisted his body, and came down with a highlight-reel 15-yard catch.

Wilson looked more comfortable during minicamp as he continued to learn the nuances of the playbook. The wide receiver position is notably a complex one to learn in the Jets' offense, but Wilson showed signs of growth over the course of just a few weeks.

While Wilson primarily worked with the second-team offense, it shouldn't be long before he's out there getting reps with the starters. Training camp will be the next step in his development.
