This is not a comprehensive list. Each team is allowed to bring in up to 30 prospects who are not considered local players. Considering what fertile breeding ground the state of New Jersey is for college football talent, the Jets have a bit of an edge since a lot of good native players will be considered local.

The one thing that surprises me a bit is the fact the team is looking at running back. There are already a pair of young backs, and LaDainian Tomlinson seems to be coming back. The team could also stand to give John Conner some carries. If a guy has the chance to be a standout, though, it would make sense.
