Highlighting five of the nine undrafted free agents that the New York Jets signed and what, if any, impact they’ll have on the 2020 NFL season.

The New York Jets did a decent job of grabbing talented players in the 2020 NFL Draft who could make an impact early in their careers. They still have some holes to fill, but luckily for the Jets, the deep talent pool of this class allowed them to pick up some intriguing undrafted free agents.

It may have been a surprise to some that New York only picked up one wide receiver for Sam Darnold in the draft, however, they did agree to contracts with two wide receivers that went undrafted. They inked a deal with Georgia big man Lawrence Cager and WVU speedster George Campbell. These are two players that had similar collegiate careers but hope to latch on with the New York Jets.

New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas did a nice job of beefing up the secondary in the 2020 NFL Draft. He selected Cal defensive back Ashtyn Davis in the third round and picked up a steal in the fifth round with Virginia cornerback Bryce Hall. He wasn’t done though, as he agreed to free-agent deals with Nebraska corner Lamar Jackson and Utah’s Javelin Guidry. They also signed Alabama defensive back Shyeim Carter, who is my wildcard to make the roster.

Everyone knows that the New York Jets pass rush needs improvement and it may have been a surprise that they waited until the fourth round to pick up an edge rusher when they selected Jabari Zuniga.

However, New York may have found something in undrafted free agent Bryce Huff. The Memphis product was expected to be selected in the later rounds, but he never heard his name called. I’ll dive a bit deeper into Huff as we go along, but he’s definitely a name to watch in training camp.

With everything being said it is now time to take a deeper look into these undrafted signings. As a fan of the New York Jets, I’m excited to see if any of these guys have what it takes to make the final roster. New York has found some undrafted gems in recent years, namely Robby Anderson and Damon Harrison. Will any of these guys leave the impact they made?
