Amazingly, Rashed isn't even the most notable undrafted rookie out of Oregon State on the Jets' roster. That honor belongs to cornerback Isaiah Dunn who the Jets have been high on since he was signed back in May

At the time, the Jets made Dunn the highest-paid undrafted cornerback of all time. Evidently, they believed he could make the team out of training camp.

That much was made clear when Dunn started receiving first-team reps at cornerback as early as OTAs and minicamp. Since then, the rookie has had a bit of an up-and-down summer.

He's rotated between the first and second-team defense, missed time with an injury, and even received the start in the Jets' second preseason game.

Unfortunately, his performance in that game didn't do him any favors.

Dunn is still in the mix for a role in the Jets' defense, although he's likely behind both Blessuan Austin and Brandin Echols in the competition for the No. 2 cornerback job.

Barring injury, it would seem as though Bryce Hall, Austin, Echols, Jason Pinnock, Javelin Guidry, Michael Carter II, and Justin Hardee are roster locks. That's seven cornerbacks already seemingly guaranteed a spot on the roster.

Is there room for Dunn? Maybe, but he'll have to earn it.

Isaiah Dunn has been the Jets' best undrafted rookie this offseason, but even he will have to fight to convince the organization that he deserves a roster spot.
