NY Jets wide receivers (6)

  • Garrett Wilson, Allen Lazard, Mecole Hardman, Corey Davis, Randall Cobb, Denzel Mims

The revamped wide receiver room added Lazard, Hardman, and Cobb to create a deep top five receivers.

The first position that is seemingly up for grabs is the sixth wide receiver spot. For now, I will stick with it being Mims, considering the Jets have already stuck with him for this long.

Other options include Irvin Charles and undrafted free agents Xavier Gipson or Jason Brownlee, who will all be options to be brought back on the practice squad.

NY Jets tight ends (4)

  • Tyler Conklin, C.J. Uzomah, Jeremy Ruckert, Zack Kuntz

The Jets will mainly bring back the same tight ends from last season. Conklin and Uzomah should still see the majority of the snaps, but if Ruckert can continue his impressive spring into training camp, he might take on a larger role.

Kuntz was a seventh-round pick taken as a developmental player, so he probably won’t play much in his first season.

Kenny Yeboah could be a practice squad option, but with four players likely in front of him, he might take an opportunity somewhere else if he can get one.

NY Jets offensive lineman (10)

  • Mekhi Becton (OT), Duane Brown (OT), Carter Warren (OT), Max Mitchell (OT), Billy Turner (OT), Laken Tomlinson (OG), Alijah Vera-Tucker (OG), Wes Schweitzer (OG/C), Connor McGovern (C), Joe Tippmann (C)

The Jets added a lot of offensive line depth this offseason, signing Schweitzer and Turner and drafting Warren and Tippmann.

Three of the five starting spots seem to already be decided: Brown at left tackle, Tomlinson at left guard, and Vera-Tucker at right guard. This leaves competitions at center, with Tippmann and McGovern, and right tackle, with Becton, Turner, and Mitchell.

Trystan Colon is an option to bring back on the practice squad if he doesn’t get picked up by another team.
