Through two months of rookie minicamps, organized activities (OTAs) and mandatory minicamps, the Jets' wide receiver depth chart is just as wide open as it started.
Of all the receivers on the Jets who have a roster spot at stake, only Stephen hill has stood out so far as a much-improved player through spring practices.
The only other player to impress was free-agent acquisition Eric Decker, who is guaranteed to be the Jets' No. 1 receiver regardless.
Hill may have had a nice spring, but the battle to be a final member of the Jets' receiving corps is far from over. With three draft picks added to the equation (Jalen Saunders, Shaq Evans and Quincy Enunwa), keeping both Jacoby Ford and David Nelson will be a impossibility if the Jets want to carry all of their drafted receivers on the 53-man roster.
At some point, the Jets are going to have to cut a player that deserves to be on the roster because of the sheer volume of talented players at this position.
The Jets have a lot of talent at this position, but much of this talent is underdeveloped. They need one or two of their youngsters to play out of their element and seize the No. 2 receiver job in order for their pass offense to take the next step in 2014.
