We have the 17th core member of the New York Jets, as voted by all of you. And the winner is: Blessuan Austin, Cornerback! Blessuan Austin was the Jets’ 6th round draft pick in the 2019 NFL draft. His contract runs through the 2022 season. Austin started his Jets career on the sidelines, recovering from an ACL injury suffered in college. When he finally got on the field in the second half of the 2019 season, Austin impressed early, before fading late in the year. Austin started 10 games for the Jets in 2020, but was generally unimpressive. He will probably have to step up his game if he is to be on the Jets in 2022.

With Blessuan Austin taking the 17th spot, our crowd sourced Jets Core 2022 looks like this:

  1. Mekhi Becton
  2. Quinnen Williams
  3. Denzel Mims
  4. Marcus Maye
  5. Bryce Hall
  6. Ashtyn Davis
  7. Folorunso Fatukasi
  8. John Franklin-Myers
  9. C.J. Mosley
  10. Braden Mann
  11. Jamison Crowder
  12. Sam Darnold
  13. Brian Poole
  14. Chris Herndon
  15. Connor McGovern
  16. Neville Hewitt
  17. Blessuan Austin
  18. ?

We have been crowd sourcing the list of Jets players most likely to still be with the team in 2022 for 17 days now. The time has come to wrap this up. Today will be the final poll. After we get the results from today’s poll I will post the final list tomorrow, along with my own thoughts regarding the list.

So let’s get to it. Today we vote for the number 18 and final Jets core player. Who will the final spot go to? Vote early, vote often, and let’s hear who you think are the players that will be the Jets leaders of the future.
