In case you missed it, the New York Jets coaching staff is headed to the Senior Bowl.

If you’re wondering what this means — every year, two NFL franchises coach the college football All-Star game, otherwise known as the Senior Bowl. This tradition allows these two predetermined organizations to get an up-close and personal look at some of the best prospects in the draft.

Normally, the two worst teams from 2021 get this honor but the Jets lucked out in 2022 being that the Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans fired their coaches. That extended the job to Robert Saleh and Gang Green, as well as Dan Campbell and the Detroit Lions.

Slowly but surely, the official Reese’s Senior Bowl Twitter account has begun releasing the rosters for each team. So far, the Jets “National” group of prospects includes:

QB– Kenny Pickett, Desmond Ridder, Carson Strong.

WR– Jahan Dotson, Romeo Doubs, Bo Melton, Alec Pierce, Khalil Shakir, Christian Watson.

TE– Jake Ferguson, Charlie Kolar, Trey McBride, Jeremy Ruckert, Cole Turner.

Most fans would agree that the Jets absolutely need at least one tight end in 2022, probably two, maybe three! That makes this position extra important in the Senior Bowl and Saleh may have hit the jackpot with his roster.

Before they were announced, executive director of the Senior Bowl Jim Nagy tweeted: “Good mix of true Y’s [in-line blockers] (Iowa State’s Charlie Kolar), playmaking F’s [off-line pass-catchers] (Coastal’s Isaiah Likely), & versatile Y/F’s [dual-threats] (Colorado State’s Trey McBride). Deepest TE class in years.”
