This one is a little harsh, sure. Jason Pinnock hasn't necessarily done anything wrong this summer. But it's clear that he's fallen a little behind when compared to his teammates.

The Jets have been rotating cornerbacks all summer with at least four players receiving first-team reps on the outside and three seeing time with the starters in the slot.

Pinnock has not been one of those players.

The Jets have rotated Bryce Hall, Blessuan Austin, Brandin Echols, and Isaiah Dunn at outside cornerback while Michael Carter II, Javelin Guidry, and Elijah Campbell have split time in the nickel.

Consider where Pinnock was a couple of months ago and you could see the decline.

With Austin sidelined for spring practices, it was Pinnock who received the first crack at the CB2 job opposite Hall. He split time with Dunn while Echols primarily played with the second team.

But in training camp, it appears as though Echols has surpassed Pinnock on the depth chart. Is this a major cause for concern? Not necessarily.

That said, it does seem clear that Pinnock's stock has fallen a little since the spring. He's still in the mix to receive playing time at cornerback, but he appears to be facing more of an uphill battle now.
