With the regular season just around the corner and the Preseason soon to be upon us, players are fighting for their place on the depth chart. Undrafted rookies are always players to watch during the preseason. Plenty of undrafted rookies have made a name for themselves in the preseason recently, Jaylen Warren, Jack Sanborn, Tyler Huntly, James Robinson, and Tony Adams, to name a few.
All those players have made a name for themselves and now it’s time for new rookies to try and make a 53-man roster.
NFL: 5 Undrafted rookies to watch in the preseason
5. Kearis Jackson, WR, Tennessee Titans
Last season the Titans lacked a deep threat and depth at wide receiver. Jackson is just the player to bring in. At Georgia, Jackson was used as a deep threat and a return man, but he struggled with injuries thus hurting his production and draft stock.
Jackson worked his way up during training camp getting, 2nd string snaps and catching passes from Malik Willis. By week 3 of the preseason starts Titan fans can expect him to get some significant reps.
4. Sean Tucker, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
With Leonard Fournette being a free agent and having an abysmal run game in 2022, Tampa Bay is looking for more help in the run game. Sean Tucker might be able to bring that help, at Syracuse he rushed for 3,182 yards and 27 touchdowns. Tucker showed promise as a pass-catcher catching 64 passes for 622 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Right now, the Buccaneers RB rotation is predicted to be Rachaad White, Ke’shawn Vaughn, and Chase Edmunds. It’s going to be hard for Tucker to crack the 53-man roster, but running backs struggle with injuries.
