NY Jets Position Group No. 9 - Cornerbacks
Now onto what some might consider the "real" starters, the next on the list is the cornerbacks unit of the team — which lacks any real veteran leadership.
For a while, it seemed as though the Jets would seek to reunite Robert Saleh with cornerback Richard Sherman. For a variety of reasons, it seems that isn't the case.
The team has not named any starters yet, of course. However, it's presumed that the number one corner on the roster will be second-year player Bryce Hall, who really started form into the player the Jets thought he would be before he started his slide in the 2020 NFL Draft.
As for the second corner, that is very much up in the air. The Jets are electing to ride with young, unproven players instead of signing a veteran.
It shows that Robert Saleh and Joe Douglas are confident in the current selection of players available on the team at the moment, which should be reassuring to the fans and organization.
A few players have shown promise at this position, with young slot corner Javelin Guidry being set up for the slot cornerback role. Even rookie Michael Carter II could snag the starting role at that position if the coaches like what they see.
Undrafted free agent Isaiah Dunn has also been showing that he should have heard his name called on draft day, flying up the depth chart to possibly find himself as one of the rookies starting Week 1in the secondary.
This position might be the most unproven — but they are also the unit with the most potential this low on the list. By this time next year, this position group might go from being ranked one of the worst to one of the best.
