The NY Jets have almost completely overhauled their roster over just the last two offseasons. The result has been an influx of depth the Jets, as an organization, haven't seen in years.

That depth is, of course, a good thing for the state of the franchise, especially after an injury-riddled 2021 campaign exposed their lack of depth a year ago. However, it isn't exactly good news for some members of the roster.

Many holdovers from previous rosters now find themselves fighting to save their jobs this offseason. A good few of those players are former draft picks, either of current general manager Joe Douglas or of previous GM Mike Maccagnan.

There aren't many players remaining on the Jets roster from the Maccagnan era, and even fewer of them were added via the draft. This is very much Douglas' team now, although even he hasn't hit a home run on every pick in the draft. Far from it.

Douglas' first draft class as head honcho of the Jets didn't exactly go as planned, and many of the players from that class find themselves on the roster bubble entering the summer.

The following seven players will be hoping to put together strong performances this summer in order to secure their roster spots. Let's take a look at seven former Jets draft picks fighting for a spot on the team's final roster.
