2. Denzel Mims, WR, NY Jets

Perhaps no player needed to end up on this list more than Denzel Mims did. Fortunately, Mims impressed on Saturday in more ways than one.

He finished as the team's leading receiver hauling in three catches for 51 yards including a huge third-down pickup in which he fought to reach the marker.

Mims also spent some time on special teams — something he asked the coaching staff to do — and even came away with a tackle. It's clear that Mims is doing everything he can to work his way back up the depth chart.

He's still working with the third-team offense, but Mims was one of the best players on the field on Saturday — as evidenced by his 83.5 PFF grade that was tops among all offensive players on the Jets.

More games like this will help Denzel Mims reclaim his role in the offense.

1. Bryce Huff, DE, NY Jets

Bryce Huff might be one of the Jets' most improved players this summer. An undrafted rookie a year ago, Huff enter camp looking to establish a role in the pass rush rotation.

After Saturday's game, it seems evident that he's primed for a sizable role this season.

Huff was a force on Saturday finishing with two sacks, three pressures, and an incredible 21.4 pass-rush win rate, per PFF. All of that on just 24 snaps.

Huff, along with undrafted rookie Hamilcar Rashed Jr. (who deserves a shoutout of his own) wreaked havoc on a poor Giants offensive line all game.

Don't be surprised if Bryce Huff plays 40 percent (or more) of defensive snaps by the time the season comes to an end.
