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

Name: Helva Matungulu

Number: 61

Year With Jets: 1st

Projected Role: Competing for one of the last roster spots as defensive line depth

His 2015: Matungulu finished out his career at Western Carolina. He might have put himself on the radar with a 5 tackle effort when his team played Texas A&M. He signed with the Jets as an undrafted free agent.

2016 will be a success if: Matungulu makes the practice squad and sticks around for the entire year. This roster is not an easy one for undrafted free agent defensive linemen to crack. The Jets are set up front on the defensive line. Many small school prospects also need to spend time on the practice squad to refine their technique. One thing working against Matungulu is that he is already 24 years old.

Odds of making the roster: Longshot (less than 25%)
