FLORHAM PARK, NJ – With the 2017 draft in the books, now comes the time that teams scour the scrapheap of un-drafted college players to fill their training camp rosters and in the process try to find a diamond or two in the rough. Usually these diamonds are few and far between. If a team keeps one or two un-drafted rookies that’s a lot for a season. Some great un-drafted free agents in Jets history that come to mind are WR Wayne Chrebet and S Victor Green.
