New York Jets Contributing Rookies

NFL Mocks is going to do a team by team look at what rookies have the potential to contribute during their first season.  Every year there are countless rookies that have major and minor impacts.  Everyone expects the 1st round picks to make an impact but we hope to point out some other players that may help your favorite team win games.

The Jets are a lot of peoples hot pick to win the Super Bowl this season.  They have made some nice offseason moves and hope to build off of last year’s playoff team.

Kyle Wilson:  Wilson will get some looks as the Jets return man but also figures into the defensive back rotation.  Wilson figures to have a more prominent roll if Darrelle Revis continues his hold out.

Vlad Ducasse: The Jets selected Ducasse in the 2nd round and immediately put him into competition with Matt Slauson for the left guard spot.  I am sure this competition will continue for the better part of the preseason.  I personally don’t see how the Jets think Ducasse is ready to start for an NFL team.  He played at UMass against lower level competition and then struggled during the Senior Bowl against better players.

Joe McKnight:  McKnight is a good receiver out of the backfield and that is how he figures to see the field.  However, he faces an uphill battle with Shonn Greene and LT in front of him on the depth chart.
