6. Keshunn Abram, WR, NY Jets (Kent State)

Of the six undrafted free agents the Jets added, three of them are wide receivers. It's clear that the Jets expect some competition for the final spots on their wide receiver depth chart.

One player who will be looking to make some noise is Kent State product Keshunn Abram. Abram is a former JUCO standout who was teammates with current Jets cornerback Brandin Echols at Northwest Mississippi Community College before transferring to Kent State.

The 6-foot-1, 194-pound Abram spent one year as a starter at Kent State hauling in 47 catches for 699 yards and three touchdowns. He's someone who has gotten better every year, but he also lacks a dominant trait that helps him stand out.

That's the biggest reason he ranks so low on this list. Abram will be fighting an uphill battle to stand out this summer, but he could earn a spot in a wide-open wide receiver room.

5. Calvin Jackson, WR, NY Jets (Washington State)

Calvin Jackson was the lone undrafted player the Jets signed from the over 50 tryout players in attendance for the team's rookie minicamp earlier in the month.

At just 5-foot-8, 193 pounds, Jackson is far from the biggest receiver out there. But he's quick and agile with ample special-teams experience, particularly as a return man. He also did this last season:

Jackson flashed his athleticism and big-play ability at Washington State and his skill set is tailor-made for this jets offense. He'll have a chance to stick if he can make plays like that this summer.
