The New York Jets number of undrafted free agents heading into this weekend’s rookie minicamp rounds off at a nice seven.
New York Jets rookie minicamp is already underway.
Officially commencing on Friday and run through the weekend with Todd Bowles and the front office suits watching closely.
Of course, we know who the main attraction is. It’s no secret. The man of the moment, Sam Darnold, is who the media will be after over the next few days.
Then there are the other five drafted players that have received their fair share of attention as well.
The thing is … they’re not alone—not by a longshot.
Seven other undrafted rookie free agents have been officially snagged by the Jets front office making for a larger and nicer group.
- FB Dimitri Flowers, Oklahoma (6-foot-2, 248 pounds)
- OL Austin Golson, Auburn (6-foot-5, 312 pounds)
- CB Reggie Hall, Jacksonville State (6-foot-3, 208 pounds)
- DT Lord Hyeamang, Columbia (6-foot-4, 285 pounds)
- OL Darius James, Auburn (6-foot-4, 324 pounds)
- G Dakoda Shepley, University of British Columbia (6-foot-4, 305 pounds)
- DL Mychealon Thomas, Texas Tech (6-foot-1, 325 pounds)
The kid who highlights the group is, without question, Dimitri Flowers. Flowers, 22, is the son of former NFL pass rusher Erik Flowers and is unlike any undrafted free agent of the bunch. With only Lawrence Thomas on the roster at the position, the kid has every legit shot to come in and lock down the position.
Austin Golson, Darius James and Dakoda Shepley are three offensive lineman lottery tickets. The Jets decided to pass on drafting one single offensive lineman for the second straight season and in fact, Mikey Mac has only selected a grand total of two over the course of his 28 total choices as Jets GM.
Reggie Hall is a tall corner out of Jackson State while both Mychealon Thomas and Lord Hyeamang will compete for the right to call themselves each a part of the interior D-line rotation.
