4. Bryce Hall, CB, NY Jets
Coming into the draft, many saw Bryce Hall and his talents as a Day 2 pick, but due to a serious ankle injury, he continued to fall until Joe Douglas took a chance on the Virginia product in the fifth round at No. 158 overall.
Hall still struggled with the injury early in his NFL career, but he has blossomed into a great player since getting healthy, and he could be a starting cornerback on this team for many, many years to come.
Despite not having the many interceptions to show for his good play, Hall has been a great pick for the Jets. With the team still bolstering their defense this offseason, Hall could break out as a genuine star in the NFL in 2022.
5. Quincy Enunwa, WR, NY Jets
When selecting in Round 6 of the NFL Draft, teams take fliers on players and don’t expect immediate production, but that’s what the Jets got when they drafted Quincy Enunwa at No. 206.
A severe neck injury cut his career short, but Enunwa was at one point one of the most physical receivers in the NFL, and he looked like he was on the verge of becoming a star for the wide receiver hungry Jets.
His injury-riddled career only spanned five seasons with the Jets, many of those seasons being cut short, but in that time, he managed to put up 1,600 yards receiving along with five touchdowns. He remains a massive what-if for this seemingly cursed franchise.
