Our Jets roster countdown now moves on to rookie wide receiver Chad Hansen.
Name: Chad Hansen
Year with Jets: 1st
Projected Role: Competing for playing time at wide receiver
His 2016: Hansen broke out at California, recording 92 catches for 1,249 yards and 11 touchdowns. He entered the NFL Draft, where the Jets selected him in the fourth round. Some analysts felt it was a great value for the Jets.
2017 will be a success if: Hansen has flashes of quality play. Given what the Jets have at the wide receiver position, he stands to see playing time. I still think expectations should be low. Hansen was a fourth round pick. Players from that part of the Draft rarely make a major impact as rookies. Hansen’s game probably does need some refinement. Any signs of productivity are a good sign for this year.
Odds of making the roster: Lock (>99%)
