10. The NY Jets running back competition

The Jets added a couple of new faces to their running back room this offseason — both of whom figure to see substantial playing time. But how will the running back rotation look come Week 1?

Free-agent signing Tevin Coleman and fourth-round rookie Michael Carter seem to be the de facto top-two backs with the returning Ty Johnson not too far behind.

There's also 2020 fourth-round pick La'Mical Perine who will look to avoid getting lost in the shuffle and even Josh Adams who impressed in limited playing time last year.

Training camp will help determine the role of each of these players and who will be utilized on offense (and how much they will be utilized) come the start of the regular season.

9. Chris Herndon's final chance at redemption

Chris Herndon remains likely the biggest mystery on the Jets roster. A promising rookie campaign preceded two abysmal campaigns headlined by injuries, a suspension, and pretty awful play on the field.

Now, Herndon finds himself desperately clinging on to his starting job and fighting to convince the Jets that he's worth keeping around past this season.

He might be facing an uphill battle too with the likes of Tyler Kroft and Ryan Griffin reportedly working ahead of him at minicamp.

Herndon isn't going to be handed anything. And his final chance at redemption should be well documented this summer.
