With the Jets' rookies taking the field for the first time with the team last week, the progression towards earning an in-season role is underway for Mike Maccagnan's final draft class. Let's review each pick and what we can expect from them during the 2019 season.
Round 1 - DT Quinnen Williams
While the Jets have plenty of depth on the defensive line, they will be counting on Williams to play a significant role, and the expectation is that he'll be a difference-maker for them.
Williams was announced as a nose tackle when the Jets selected him and that seems likely to be where he'll start. Speaking to the media last week, linebacker CJ Mosley said that Williams has been lining up over the center and impressing with his motor and disruptiveness. He will probably also get some reps elsewhere along the line, depending on which defensive packages defensive coordinator Gregg Williams opts to employ from game to game.
