The Best Rookie Storylines at New York Jets' OTAs

Many of the headlines from the New York Jets' OTAs don't directly involve rookies. It's necessary to extrapolate the implications for rookies from the story.

Injuries are the best example. For example, who benefits from the inability of first-team and second-team wide receivers to participate in these drills? Those who made the best impressions during rookie camp might see more repetitions.

Positional changes are another move that opens opportunities for rookies. If Quinton Coples' move to outside linebacker succeeds, playing time on defensive line should be available.

There are some obvious storylines for sure. Geno Smith's battle for a starting quarterback role is one. Sixth-round pick William Campbell's conversion to guard is a second. Dee Milliner's forced inactivity is a third.

Hopefully these slides will touch on the obvious and perhaps not-so-obvious rookie storylines as the Jets move through OTAs and prepare for training camp.
