For as much growth as the New York Jets have seen from some of their younger players, they have seen their fair share of disappointments from this year's training camp.
With an oversized draft class (12 players) and few established veterans in place at a number of key positions, the Jets were dependent on several youngsters to blossom with expanded roles. Some players have shown improvement, but plenty have fallen short of expectations.
A player who performs poorly is not necessarily a disappointing player. After all there must be some kind of reasonable expectation that a player fails to meet—an undrafted free agent who is cut from the final roster is hardly a disappointment.
At the same time, there is a level of expectation for each drafted player to make the team (or at least come close). Otherwise, why bother drafting said player?
Here are some of the biggest preseason disappointments so far.
