The NY Jets are less than a week away from roster cutdown day. Next Tuesday, every NFL team will be required to trim their rosters down from 80 to 53 players ahead of the start of the regular season.
For some players, it's a day of heartbreak and anguish as dreams are crushed. But for others, it's a day of celebration and relief upon learning they made the cut.
Either way, the day is likely a stressful one for those who fund themselves on the roster bubble. We're not talking about the established starters here. These players, many of whom are young, are just looking for an opportunity.
Every year we see a number of undrafted rookies receive that opportunity and go on to exceed all expectations. Just last year, Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson became only the fourth undrafted rookie to ever rush for 1,000 yards.
The Jets had a few undrafted players receive substantial playing time as rookies. The likes of Bryce Huff, Lamar Jackson, and Javelin Guidry immediately spring to mind.
This year's Jets are no different either with a few notable undrafted players already making waves this summer. But which ones have the best chance to stick around past final cuts?
