New York Jets – What About The Middle Class?

Joe Caporoso on the questions around the middle class of the New York Jets roster

The New York Jets have struggled in recent NFL Drafts, to put it politely. We don’t need to rehash the abnormally high volume of players selected from 2015-2018 who are no longer here (we can save that until after the final 53 is confirmed) but it creates a burden for the roster to overcome as they deal with the normal perils of NFL training camp. Injuries (Avery Williamson) happen. Suspensions (Chris Herndon) happen. When they do, it is critical for the “middle class” of your roster to rise to the occasion to properly support the top talent.

Quinnen Williams was the third pick in the NFL Draft. Kelechi Osemele has been an All-Pro when healthy and former top six pick Leonard Williams is entering the season with high expectations in a contract year. Yet, it may be the lesser known names who make or break the Jets ending their eight year playoff drought…
