The Jets are expected to have a wide-open competition at the cornerback position this offseason after doing very little to address one of their biggest roster holes.

At the moment, Bryce Hall and Blessuan Austin are penciled in as the starters on the outside, but that could easily change before the start of the season.

One player to keep an eye on is undrafted rookie Isaiah Dunn.

The Jets made a little noise when they handed Dunn the largest contract ever given to an undrafted cornerback. They clearly have high hopes for him, and he's done everything to prove them right thus far.

Dunn has been one of the stars of camp and has found himself shooting up the depth chart as a result. With Austin sitting out of Friday's practice, Dunn even received some first-team reps at cornerback.

He'll have to compete with fellow rookies Jason Pinnock and Brandin Echols for snaps at outside corner, but he seems to have the early edge.

Another rookie cornerback to watch is Michael Carter II who seems to have already taken over the majority of first-team reps in the slot from Javelin Guidry and Elijah Campbell.
