The final phase of the evaluation process before the NFL Draft is the team visit phase. Teams are allowed to bring up to 30 prospects who do not have local ties to their facilities to get to know potential selections better.
The Jets do not officially confirm any of these visits, but word gets out on many of them. Part of the agent’s job is to make it sound like his client is in demand. Here are the players who have reported visits with the Jets so this year. This list will likely expand.
As always, moderate your responses to the news the Jets are meeting with any of these prospects. If the Jets are using a visit on any of these players there is at least cursory interest. But it isn’t a guarantee the team will pick any of these prospects. These visits are part of the evaluation process. The team might not like what they have to see.
Additionally, a prospect not visiting doesn’t necessarily reflect a lack of interest from the Jets. They might have interviewed said player at the Senior Bowl and/or Combine and feel like they got all of the information they need to know.
With that said, here are the prospects we know about so far.
