Our Jets roster countdown now moves to Darius James.

Name: Darius James

Number: 76

Year with Jets: 1st

Projected Role: Practice squad candidate

His 2017: James saw action in 13 games as Auburn’s right tackle. After going undrafted, the Jets signed him as a free agent.

2018 will be a success if: James can make the practice squad. I can’t think of many undrafted offensive linemen stepping in and helping a team in year one. Players of this profile are developmental types. To the extent James might be able to help the Jets, it would be a few years down the line. He would do well to show the team enough in training camp and the preseason to earn that practice squad spot and show he is worth a continued investment.

Odds of making the roster: The Jets might not have great depth on the offensive line, but an undrafted free agent is a big Longshot (less than 25%).
