If there's any position that the Jets should have invested more into this offseason, it's the cornerback position. Outside of the three cornerbacks the Jets took on Day 3 of the 2021 NFL Draft, their lone addition is special teams ace Justin Hardee.

As things stand, the Jets will enter the season with Bryce Hall and Blessuan Austin as their expected starters. Obviously, that is subject to change, given there are plenty of options still available in free agency.

At the same time, if the Jets are content with those on the roster, undrafted cornerback Isaiah Dunn should have a chance to make the team.

Following the draft, the Jets made Dunn the highest-paid undrafted free agent cornerback in NFL history. Clearly, the Jets see potential in Dunn.

Playing his college ball at Oregon State, Dunn never registered an interception. Rather, he is a smart player who had 18 pass deflections and 115 total tackles in 29 career games for the team.

Dunn is 6-foot, 193-pounds and has been a lockdown corner at Oregon State for the past four years. He is a patient player with a very high football IQ that helps him be physical at the line of scrimmage. Plus, he has fluid movement that helps him make up for his average athleticism.

One issue that Dunn is going to need to touch up though is his tackling technique. It certainly played a role in him going undrafted in the first place.

But like the other three previously mentioned, he is in a great position to compete and fight to make his NFL dreams come true with the Jets.
