Rookie mini-camp is getting ready to wrap up in Florham Park and while the team has already added seven undrafted free agents to their 90-man roster, are there any other names who could be joining their fellow rookies? Here are a few names to keep an eye on.
QB John Wolford, Wake Forest: While he obviously lacks the resume of number one overall pick in Baker Mayfeld, Wolford could be viewed as Mayfield-light during his senior season at Wake Forest. The 6′ 1” Wolford produced 39 touchdowns (29 pass/10 rush) to just 6 interceptions while completing 64% of his passes to go along with 683 yards on the ground. Shows great ball placement, plenty of arm strength and cool under pressure. According to PFF, no ACC quarterback had a higher rating under pressure at 102.7.

OT Bentley Spain, North Carolina: The Jets can use some depth along the O-line and Spain has battled injuries but started 23 games at left tackle for the Tar Heels over the course of his final two seasons. Earned team’s highest blocking grade in four different contests in 2017 and played well against some quality programs.
OT Matt Diaz, Wagner: Another O-lineman, Diaz is a local kid out of Edison, New Jersey who checks in at 6′ 6” and just a hair under 300 lbs. Was two-time All-NEC first team in each of his final two collegiate seasons and the Jets should be looking to add options as back-up/practice squad linemen.
With just one more day of mini-camp remaining, there’s a chance the Jets won’t add anymore undrafted free agents to their 90-man roster, but if they do, one of the listed players could earn an extended stay in the New York/New Jersey area.
