The group of undrafted free agents signed by the New York Jets has largely gone unnoticed, in part because the team’s roster appears to be better than it has been in the franchise’s history.
The wide receiver Calvin Jackson Jr. is among the players that can surprise spectators throughout training camp despite the aforementioned.
Fans started taking notice of Jackson after he impressed them during rookie camp and earned a position on the team’s roster. During his time at Independence Community College (the focus of the Netflix documentary film “Last Chance U”), the JUCO product played with future first-round pick Jermaine Johnson II.
This history alone helped to set the scene for Jackson in August, but the fact that he had 987 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in the previous season added some fuel to the fire. In the same vein as providing fuel, Jackson delivered a message to the supporters on July 16, just a few days before the rookies were scheduled to report to Florham Park.
This is exactly the kind of driven mentality that you want to see in an undrafted talent. The majority of undrafted free agents enter the NFL with the goal of proving everyone wrong, but very few actually succeed in doing so.
Is it feasible that Jackson will become the next undrafted prospect who becomes successful in New York?
