The NY Jets have officially wrapped up their 2022 OTAs as the final voluntary practice of the offseason came to a close this past Thursday. Next stop, mandatory minicamp.

The Jets will officially kick off minicamp this coming Tuesday as all players on the roster will be required to attend. That goes for the likes of Mekhi Becton, Carl Lawson, or any of a number of players who weren't there for all of OTAs for one reason or another.

As always, it's difficult to fully gauge anything from just the OTA period. Head coach Robert Saleh had his team participate in just one 11-on-11 drill per practice and primarily lined up in 7-on-7 sets.

Notably, the Jets didn't practice their running game, so it was especially difficult for running backs or trench players to stand out. It should come as no surprise that you won't find any of those players mentioned on this list.

It's best to take spring practices with a grain of salt — that goes for both OTAs and minicamp. Following the Jets' three-day mandatory minicamp, players will be given a six-week vacation before they reconvene for training camp in July.

That's when things really start to get going and proper narratives can begin to formulate. But for now, all we have to go off of are the four practices the media was permitted to attend during OTAs.

Let's take a look at four takeaways from the Jets' 2022 OTAs.
