Jets 2018 Roster Countdown: Number 27 Darryl Roberts

NFL: New York Jets at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Next up as our Jets roster countdown continues is Darryl Roberts.

Name: Darryl Roberts

Number: 27

Year with Jets: 3rd

Projected Role: Cornerback depth

His 2017: Roberts stepped into a bigger role Week 3 after the benching of Juston Burris, and the Jets gave him extensive playing time. The results were mixed. PFF held Roberts responsible for 28 catches and 422 yards in coverage on 299 cover snaps. The 1.41 yard average per snap put him at 108th in the league, which puts him in dime back territory. The signing of Trumaine Johnson will reduce his playing time, and Derrick Jones’ emergence might threaten his roster spot.

2018 will be a success if: Roberts can hold off Jones and do a solid job in the number four cornerback spot.

Odds of making the roster: It might be too late for him to hold off Jones, which means he is battling for one of the last cornerback spots. 50/50
