The Jets are doing everything they can to give snaps to the rookies on their roster. And that extends beyond just those who were drafted in April/May.

Perhaps the Jets' most impressive undrafted rookie to this point has been Oregon State cornerback Isaiah Dunn. Dunn quickly made a name for himself in OTAs and it wasn't long before he was getting work with the first-team defense.

With Blessuan Austin out, it was fifth-round pick Jason Pinnock and Dunn splitting time opposite Bryce Hall at cornerback for the majority of OTAs.

And he carried over his success from OTAs into minicamp.

Numerous members of the media in attendance for minicamp took notice of Dunn's strong play. Brian Costello of the NY Post remarked that he "continues to impress" while D.J. Bien-Aime of the NY Daily News simply questioned, "How did Isaiah Dunn go undrafted?"

That might be the same question the Jets were asking themselves when they handed Dunn the largest contract ever given to an undrafted cornerback last month.

The Jets aren't surprised that Dunn has impressed as much as he has. And at this point, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him as a Week 1 starter, let alone as a member of the 53-man roster.

Keep an eye on Isaiah Dunn. He may not be a household name among Jets fans right now, but it might not be long until he is.
