Jets 2018 Roster Countdown: Number 69 Ben Braden

NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Our Jets roster countdown turns to Ben Braden.

Name: Ben Braden

Number: 69

Year with Jets: 2nd

Projected Role: Practice squad candidate

His 2017: Braden signed with the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan. He lasted with the team through the preseason but failed to make the final 53 man roster. Braden did land on the practice squad, which indicates the team at least saw some potential in him.

2018 will be a success if: Braden shows enough in training camp to justify another year of practice squad work. This is admittedly a low bar to clear, but I don’t think Braden was a one year project. He remains a developmental player who probably won’t contribute in 2018. If he ever develops into anything for the Jets, it will probably happen in the future.

Odds of making the roster: I think Braden’s best shot is to make the practice squad. For the 53 man roster he is a Longshot (less than 25%).
