A breakdown of the New York Jets' 2017 draft class and its progress after two weeks of training camp:
Jamal Adams, S, first round (No. 6 overall): Adams will be a Week 1 starter in the Jets' revamped secondary; there never has been any doubt about that. He's a smart, instinctive player with excellent intangibles. He's vocal on the field, always communicating pre-snap adjustments to teammates. It's only a matter of time before he emerges as a team leader. He hasn't made any splashy plays on the practice field, but those should come in time.
Marcus Maye, S, second round (No. 39): Maye will start alongside Adams, his training camp roommate. So far, Maye has been the most impressive rookie in camp, displaying physicality near the line of scrimmage and ball skills in pass coverage. The Jets are ecstatic with his progress; they feel Maye and Adams will be a future Pro Bowl tandem at safety.
ArDarius Stewart, WR, third round (No. 79): He's playing catch-up after missing the spring (groin and thumb surgeries). Stewart can earn a place in the offense as the third or fourth receiver if he rallies -- the position is wide open -- but he'll have to become more consistent on a day-to-day basis. He has been invisible on the practice field, except for an occasional dropped pass. He caught one pass for 8 yards in the first preseason game.
Chad Hansen, WR, fourth round (No. 141): Wearing a brace because of an offseason knee sprain, Hansen has struggled to gain consistent separation in his pass routes. Like many rookies, he's adjusting to press coverage. He'll make the team, but he has a ways to go before he's good enough to dress on game day. He played only 11 snaps in the first game, finishing with one catch for 10 yards.
Jordan Leggett, TE, fifth round (No. 150): Leggett could be the No. 2 tight end, behind Austin Seferian-Jenkinss (suspended the first two games). Leggett is a liability as a blocker, but he can be used in a "flex" position. He has the athletic ability to make plays in the deep seams, although he's still tentative and prone to penalties. He had one reception for 8 yards in the opener.
Dylan Donahue, OLB, fifth round (No. 181): With his non-stop motor, Donahue should be a killer on special teams. He's not ready to start in the base defense, as he's still learning the nuances of pass coverage. In college, he played in a three-point stance and rarely had to drop into coverage. With a strong preseason, he could earn a role as a situational pass-rusher, but he's nursing a shoulder injury.
Elijah McGuire, RB, sixth round (No. 188): He's getting a ton of work because of injuries to Matt Forte and Bilal Powell. In fact, he started the first game. McGuire is a one-cut runner with decent power, but not much wiggle. He's a smooth pass catcher, a must in the Jets' West Coast system. He'll be the No. 3 back, which means he'll probably be limited to special teams.
Jeremy Clark, CB, sixth round (No. 197): This will be a redshirt year for Clark, who's still rehabbing from knee surgery last fall. Currently, he's on the non-football injury list.
Derrick Jones, CB, sixth round (No. 204): He'll probably stick as a bottom-of-the-roster, developmental-type player or maybe the practice squad. At 6-foot-2, with long arms, he has the traits to become a press corner. But his skills are raw and he needs to develop his rail-thin body. He got torched on a deep pass in the opener, but caught a break when the receiver dropped the ball.
