8. James Carpenter, OG
Perhaps the most under-the-radar steal of the 2015 offseason turned out to be New York Jets guard James Carpenter.
When all of those big deals were taking place thanks to new boss Mike Maccagnan – Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, David Harris, Brandon Marshall, etc. – it was Carpenter who provided the best bang for the buck.
A Super Bowl champion with Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks, this 27-year old will remain a mainstay on the Jets line for many years to come.
If you wonder why you hear so little about him, wonder no more. It’s because he does his job with very little fuss.
