Traditionally, starters and veteran contributors don't tend to play much in the first preseason game, so while Thursday night's game will give Jets fans their first look at players like Jamison Crowder and CJ Mosley, those players might only be in for a couple of series. Players like Le'Veon Bell and Ryan Kalil may not even suit up.

However, we should get an extended look at plenty of future contributors or players competing for a role this year. Let's focus on the young players it will be most interesting to pay attention to:

Based on reports from Thursday's practice, linebacker Blake Cashman got plenty of work with the first unit. Could this be a sign that the rookie has a realistic shot at earning a regular role on defense during the 2019 season?

Cashman had already made an impact in the spring, including an interception of quarterback Trevor Siemian during one of the OTA practices that was open to the media in May.

Prior to the draft in April, a few scouting reports characterized Cashman as athletically limited, but his film seems to suggest otherwise, and his combine workout numbers were outstanding. The main concern with him is that he has extremely short arms, but this would be less of an impediment to his ability to succeed if he's playing in space, so hopefully this wouldn't be a major issue in a coverage role.
