As we approach the 2016 season, we are going to profile the players on the roster. Today we look at Julian Stanford.

Name: Julian Stanford

Number: 51

Year With Jets: 2nd

Projected Role: Competing for linebacker spot

His 2015: Stanford failed to make the Detroit Lions' roster after spending over a year with that organization. He had multiple stints on Tampa Bay's practice squad before landing on the Jets' practice squad near the end of the season. The Jets brought him back for training camp.

2016 will be a success if: Stanford shows some sort of ability to stick on an NFL roster. He faces long odds. Stanford will already be 26 in a few weeks, and he is up against more established competition at linebacker in addition to the team's latest first round Draft pick. Even making the team will be an uphill battle

Odds of making the roster: Longshot (under 25%)
