1) James Carpenter
Carpenter will most likely earn a spot due to the fact he signed a four year, $19 million dollar deal this offseason. He was a first round pick of the Seahawks in 2011, and started 39 games in his time in Seattle. Carpenter is a big upgrade over what the Jets had at guard last season.
2) Oday Aboushi
After Brian Winters suffered a season ending injury, 2013 fifth round pick Oday Aboushi got his chance. He started 10 games for the Jets this season, and was pretty adequate. He looked very good at times, showing you the potential of being a starter. He still needs developing, but he is good enough to win a guard spot this upcoming season.
3) James Brewer
Brewer did not play much for the Giants this past season, but started 8 games the season before. Brewer was inked to a one year deal, and has value to his ability of playing multiple positions on the line. Brewer may not start this upcoming season, but he provides great depth for the Jets.
4) Willie Colon
I like Colon's leadership and personality, but I really hope he is not a starter again for the Jets. In his two seasons with the Jets, he has started every game. Colon is one of the highest penalized offensive lineman in the entire NFL, and really struggled in pass-protection this past season. At age 32, it may be time for the Jets to let go.
5) Jarvis Harrison
By all accounts, Jarvis Harrison could be a major steal for the Jets in round five. Skill-wise many say he is a second round talent, but his work ethic and drive dropped him to the fifth. Harrison has all the physical tools, and could make for a very good starting guard down the road for the Jets. I would like to see him sit out and develop for a season.
6) Brian Winters
Brian Winters was a third round pick back in 2013, and has really fallen short of expectations. Winters injured himself early into the 2014 season, but didn't show much before it. With the new regime and the lack-luster play, Winters could be in jeopardy of being cut.
7) Dakota Dozier
Dozier basically red-shirted last season, as he did not see a single play on the field. He was a fourth rounder just a year ago and has potential to develop, but there is a very small chance he starts this season. He will be competing for a roster spot.
