Let's take a brief look at each of the undrafted free agents that the Jets have been rumored to have agreed to terms with.
We will, of course, be breaking each of these down in detail over the next few months, but - for now - we'll share a quick synopsis of each player along with the one player they may need to beat out to earn a roster spot.
Utah CB Javelin Guidry
Guidry made a name for himself at the scouting combine when he ran a sub-4.3 in the 40-yard dash and posted more than 20 reps in the bench press, making him the first player in combine history to to both.
Despite these numbers, Guidry lacks size and played most of his career at the slot cornerback position. His coverage numbers were okay, although he never had more than one interception in any season, and he generated some production against the run and on special teams.
Main roster competiton: Arthur Maulet
Nebraska CB Lamar Jackson
Matt Miller called Jackson his biggest sleeper at the cornerback position after a senior year that saw him rack up career marks in tackles (40), tackles for loss (4.5), interceptions (three) and passes defensed (12).
Jackson has excellent size and length but posted disappointing numbers for speed and strength at the combine. His explosiveness numbers were above average though.
Jackson played almost exclusively on the outside throughout his four seasons with the Cornhuskers.
Main roster competition: Kyron Brown
Memphis LB Bryce Huff
Huff flew under the radar heading into the draft, despite racking up 18 sacks over the past three seasons, including 9.5 in 2018 which was good for third in the AAC. Huff's pressure rates also improved dramatically each year.
He played more as an outside linebacker until 2019, when he moved into more of a defensive end role. He's been solid against the run in both roles.
If Huff can show potential as a pass rusher in preseason, perhaps he can push another young edge defender off the roster.
Main roster competition: Frankie Luvu
Georgia WR Lawrence Cager
The 6'5" Cager was invited to the scouting combine but did not work out due to an ankle injury. He also missed the entire 2016 season with a knee injury.
Having been recruited as a tight end for the Miami Hurricanes, Cager moved to wide receiver and played three years with them before transferring to Georgia. He was having his best year with 33 catches for 476 yards in eight games before the injury. That included a seven catch, 132-yard effort against the Florida Gators.
Main roster competition: Vyncint Smith
Washington OT Jared Hilbers
Hilbers was obviously a priority for the Jets because they reportedly gave him $62,000 in guaranteed money. That's similar to what you'd typically get as a seventh round pick. He was 212th on PFF's big board.
Despite being 6'6", Hilbers has short arms so would need to move inside at the NFL level. He's more of a technician than an athlete, but can be inconsistent with his hand placement.
Main roster competition: Cameron Clark
West Virginia WR George Campbell
Campbell transferred to West Virginia after being granted a sixth year of eligibility and entered that final season having made just 13 career catches at FSU.
In that final year, he established himself as a big play threat with six receptions of at least 25 yards and the first seven touchdowns of his career. However, he only had 19 catches overall.
His true value may lie on special teams, where he showcased some good speed at 6'4". At West Virginia, he started on four units - punt return, kick return, punt coverage and kick coverage - making a name for himself with his kick coverage abilities on kickoffs and as a punt gunner. However, he also contributed as a blocker on the kick return unit and rushing punts.
Main roster competition: Trenton Cannnon
Alabama DB Shyheim Carter
Carter was a player who had draftable grades from many sources. PFF had him 209th on their big board, for example. He had good coverage numbers over the past few years and was productive against the run.
Carter, who has average size and athleticism, played most of his reps as a slot cornerback throughout his career, although he was listed as a safety in some places. Matt Miller had him ranked 14th, ahead of Jeremy Chinn, who went in the second round.
Main roster competition: Bennett Jackson
Coastal Carolina DT Sterling Johnson
Johnson was a reserve at Clemson for three years before transferring to Coastal Carolina for the past two seasons. In his senior year, Johnson moved from defensive tackle to nose tackle and performed well against the run while also ramping up his pressure numbers and recording a career-high 3.5 sacks, earning all Sun Belt Conference third-team honors.
Johnson is listed at 285 pounds in some places and 300 in others, but probably needs to bulk up even more to play nose tackle at the next level.
Main roster competition: Folorunso Fatukasi
UNC-Pembroke DL Domenique Davis
Davis was the only one of the 17 rookies the Jets were reported to have picked up this weekend not to play Division One football. In fact, the 315-pounder initially joined UNC-Pembroke as a walk-on.
In his three seasons there, Davis lined up as a 4-3 defensive tackle. Overall, he racked up 122 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and six sacks. You'd have to imagine he's more of a long-term project that could try to earn a practice squad role.
Main roster competition: Nathan Shepherd
Once these deals are finalized, the Jets are going to have to make a handful of cuts because they will push them over the 90-man roster limit. We'll keep an eye out for those moves in the weeks to come.
