Caleb Schlauderaff: Stay or Go?

Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE

The Jets traded for Caleb Schlauderaff at the very end of the 2011 preseason. The then rookie guard was not going to get a spot on Green Bay's roster. The Jets gave up a seventh round pick in a desperate attempt to bolster an offensive line with little depth.

In two years with the Jets, he has played fourteen offensive snaps. This year, as the Jets gave fairly extensive playing time to reserve linemen Jason Smith and Vladimir Ducasse, Schlauderaff never even got onto the field. All we can really judge him on are two preseasons, both of which were struggles against third and fourth string competition.

Schlauderaff is young and cheap so he probably will and should make it back to camp next year. The odds seem to be very much against him turning into a quality player, though. Players who develop tend to show us at least a flash of brilliance at some point that makes us wonder what they could turn into if they put it all together. We haven't seen anything from Schlauderaff.
