The NY Jets have inhabited the league's basement for so long that it's only logical they get overlooked from time to time.

While the roster is still a work in progress, the Jets do have quite a few players who, if on more high-profile teams, could be pushing for household status in the near future.

Imagine if Quinnen Williams was dominating opposing offensive linemen on the Kansas City Chiefs and not the Jets? What about if Marcus Maye was patrolling center field for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?

With success comes a certain degree of notoriety. Even though individual players might excel, if their team isn't finding consistent success, they might never reach the heights that they otherwise could have.

Is it right? Not necessarily — but it is reality.

Even aside from the likes of Quinnen Williams and Marcus Maye, the Jets have a number of players who fly even further under the radar.

These are the guys who perform at a high level but are virtually unknown outside of Jets fans. Even Williams and Maye get their due sometimes. But these players are as under-the-radar on a national scale as it gets.

Let's take this opportunity to appreciate the unappreciated and examine the four best-kept secrets on the Jets roster.
