The NY Jets will officially begin their three-day mandatory minicamp on Tuesday as the team kicks off the required portion of their spring practices.

OTAs are over which means that all members of the organization will be required to make their way to Florham Park for the Jets' minicamp which is slated to run from June 14th through the 16th.

Much as with OTAs, it's never wise to put too much stock into minicamp performances. Once the pads come on in training camp all bets are off, but minicamp is really just an extended version of voluntary OTAs.

Nonetheless, there are still a few storylines to keep an eye on over the course of the next few days. Let's take a look at some of the most notable.

7. Will any of the NY Jets' depth wide receiver step up?

The top four wide receiver spots on the Jets' roster are pretty much set in stone. While the team is still working out a proper rotation, it's evident that the likes of Elijah Moore, Corey Davis, Garrett Wilson, and Braxton Berrios will have some role in the offense.

The same can't be said for every other receiver on the roster. In fact, none of the others are even guaranteed a roster spot. OTAs didn't produce much in the way of highlights which could make minicamp all the more interesting.

Denzel Mims is the obvious name to keep tabs on here with the third-year wideout looking to bounce back from a disastrous 2021 season. There are also undrafted receivers like Calvin Jackson Jr., Irvin Charles, and Keshunn Abram looking to make a name for themselves.

Jackson, in particular, has impressed this spring and was one of just two players signed following Jets rookie minicamp. Keep an eye on this position group as the week goes on.
