1 – Josh McCown will get the most first team reps during the Green and White scrimmage, start the first preseason game and third preseason game, after which he will be named the week 1 starter. Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty will play to roughly a draw as the backup but Hackenberg will be named the #2 to McCown.

2 – ArDarius Stewart will struggle with injuries throughout camp and the preseason, opening up more opportunities for Charone Peake, Marquess Wilson and Gabe Marks.

3 – The offensive “stars” of camp: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Quincy Enunwa, Elijah McGuire, Chad Hansen and Brandon Shell.

4 – The defensive “stars” of camp: Jamal Adams, Juston Burris, Sheldon Richardson, Xavier Coleman and Freddie Bishop.

5 – Lucky Whitehead will emerge as the primary returner.

6 – The defense will “win the day” far more frequently than the offense.

7 – One of the following four (maybe two) will not end camp on the Jets roster: Steve McLendon, Buster Skrine, Matt Forte and Sheldon Richardson.

8 – Darron Lee will have a quiet camp and preseason.

9 – Juston Burris and Dylan Donahue will start in the first team nickel.

10 – The Jets will sign a veteran fullback at some point during camp, neither Julian Howsare or Anthony Firkser will be on the opening day roster.

11 – Bilal Powell and Matt Forte will barely play in the preseason.

12- Jets fans will fawn over John Morton because he will yell a lot at practice.
