Antonio Allen, SS
Allen had a solid preseason, and I was surprised his didn't make the final roster. The South Carolina product is a solid tackler and is decent in pass coverage. If injuries persist in New York's secondary, he could make a small impact this season.
Paul Cornick, T
The undrafted offensive lineman out of North Dakota State had a decent preseason, and managed to make the practice squad. His inclusion was mainly based on New York's lack of talent and depth at tackle, and I'd be thoroughly surprised if he managed to make an impact during the regular season.
Marcus Dowtin, LB
Dowtin was a solid pickup for the Jets. I was surprised to see him go undrafted, given his superb athleticism and balanced game. The North Alabama product was one of the final members of the team to get cut, and he has a good chance of making an impact this season if one of New York's linebackers suffers a serious injury.
Donnie Fletcher, DB
Fletcher is another player who probably deserved to be drafted. The Boston College defensive back has above-average speed, and he is a tremendous tackler. However, the Jets are stacked at defensive back. An impact from him this season is extremely unlikely.
Royce Pollard, WR
Pollard is another undrafted rookie who New York assigned to the practice squad. The former Hawaii product doesn't boast great speed or above-average size, so it will be difficult for him to make an impact at the NFL level.
Hayden Smith, TE
Smith arguably has the most potential of any player on the practice squad. The rugby player-turned-tight end has unbelievable athleticism and size, but he was too raw to make the roster.
However, with a little grooming, he could emerge as an excellent run-blocker late in the season and beyond.
Jordan White, WR
White was one of the Jets' seventh-round selections this summer, but he suffered a broken foot early in the offseason. This prevented White from showing off his skill set for the majority of training camp, and it eventually led to his demotion to the practice squad.
However, White was incredibly productive in college and he has decent potential. He could make an impact if injuries persist in the Jets' receiving corps.
