10. Tevin Coleman, RB, NY Jets

The Jets reshaped their running back room in the offseason, and that process started in free agency with the signing of Tevin Coleman. Coleman followed Robert Saleh and Mike LaFleur over from San Francisco and is expected to play a key role as a member of the team's backfield.

The Jets will likely run a committee approach with Coleman serving as the veteran of the bunch. So then why does he rank so low on this list?

It's not that the Coleman signing was a mistake — far from it. But he was far from the most exciting addition of the offseason.

Coleman's role will likely be dictated by how well young backs Michael Carter, Ty Johnson, and La'Mical Perine take to the new system. If they play well, there won't be much of a need for Coleman in the backfield rotation, despite his familiarity with the scheme.

9. Dan Feeney, OL, NY Jets

The Jets added some offensive line depth early in free agency signing former Los Angeles Chargers lineman Dan Feeney to a one-year, $3.5 million contract.

Feeney has ample starting experience having started all 16 games in each of the last three seasons. Since entering the league in 2017, Feeney has started 57 of 64 possible games, although the results have been mixed.

It's likely that the 27-year-old takes on more of a backup role with the Jets, but he will be in the mix for the starting right guard job.

His versatility to play both guard and center means he should be a lock for the final roster. Expect Feeney to provide valuable interior depth for the Jets offensive line.
