The New York Jets will begin training camp on July 26. Leading up to that, Jets Wire will provide some quick hitting analysis on each position for New York.

So yes, they’re all new, so the storyline surrounds the question of how exactly that will shake out in 2022?

Uzomah and Conklin’s signings will give Ruckert time as a rookie to adjust to the pro game. In 2022, both Uzomah and Conklin should get themselves on the field.
One could expect Uzomah to be there a bit more because of his run-blocking prowess. Conklin is undoubtedly a good pass catcher, but Uzomah graded as the better blocker via Pro Football Focus’ metrics.
Regardless, get ready to see both on passing downs. That is, assuming they find chemistry with quarterback Zach Wilson.
If the Jets do keep a fourth tight end, Wesco might factor in the most there because of his versatility.
