5 Hidden Gems the New York Jets Should Have Noticed at the Combine
Michael Conroy/Associated Press

In his first year as the New York Jets' general manager, John Idzik showed an uncanny ability to pick talent in the early rounds. 

First-round pick Sheldon Richardson won the Defensive Rookie of the Year in a dominant season on the defensive line; Dee Milliner improved significantly late in the season, and Geno Smith flashed signs of franchise-quarterback talent. 

However, Idzik didn't show the same expertise in picking up promising prospects toward the end of the draft. 

Outside of fullback Tommy Bohanon, the Jets didn't select a single player who made even the slightest impact last season. 

For Idzik to retain the support of Gang Green fans, he needs to hit at least one home run late in this year's draft. 

Judging from the combine, day two and three will not be lacking in talented prospects. 

Click through to see five hidden gems who impressed at the combine and should have New York's attention.
