2. Breece Hall, RB, NY Jets

There are some within the Jets organization who genuinely believe that Breece Hall will be one of the NFL's best running backs within the next 2-3 years. He showed why many are so high on him this past Saturday.

Hall split carries with fellow running back Michael Carter, although the rookie was the far more efficient of the two. He totaled 31 yards on four carries, including a 16-yard dash in the second half of the scrimmage.

Hall has looked the part this summer and seems primed to take over the Jets' lead back role before long, perhaps as soon as Week 1. He's a home-run threat every time he's on the field and someone who should be very involved in the passing game.

The cries of "BREEEEEECE" echoed through the bleachers whenever Hall touched the ball. Fans showed their appreciation for what was a very impressive performance from the rookie running back.

1. Tyler Conklin, TE, NY Jets

There was no bigger star from Saturday's scrimmage than Tyler Conklin, and it wasn't particularly close if we're being honest. Conklin stole the show, both in the scripted 7-on-7 and unscripted 11-on-11 portions of the practice.

He made his presence felt early on in 7-on-7s when he skied into the air, boxed out a defender with his large frame, and dove to make an acrobatic catch. It was arguably the play of the night to that point.

Conklin continued his busy evening once the scrimmage officially kicked off, hauling in a pair of passes from Wilson on the team's first drive including a 10-yard touchdown in which he beat his man off the snap.

Conklin finished the day with a team-leading seven combined catches. It's clear at this point who the Jets' top tight end is. C.J. Uzomah will get his snaps, but Conklin is the No. 1 guy at his position.

Saturday's scrimmage confirmed that notion.
