The NY Jets have officially completed their voluntary portion of the offseason. Rookie minicamp is in the books, OTAs are a thing of the past, and now it's on to mandatory minicamp which begins next week.
Soon enough, training camp will be here, the preseason will kick-off, and the regular season will be just around the corner.
For a Jets team that finished a woeful 2-14 a year ago, this year's offseason workouts are even more important. Especially given the presence of a new coaching staff and the multitude of new players on the roster.
Also consider the fact that last offseason's workouts were, for all intents and purposes, nonexistent. For both 2020 and 2021 rookies, this year's OTAs were the first time the players received the opportunity to work out with the team in any voluntary fashion.
This was the first chance for the new coaching staff to evaluate most of their players in person. And as expected, a few players managed to establish themselves as true standouts of the 10-practice event that spanned the last couple of weeks.
But which players impressed the most? And which players impressed enough to improve their stock with the team?
We take a look at five players whose stock is on the rise following OTAs.
