Part 3 - Jets training camp sleepers

Here is the third, and final part of our look at Jets training camp sleepers -

DT Zarnell Fitch - the Jets signed him to the practice squad during the season last year. The Jets need somebody to step up and grab the backup nose tackle job. If Fitch is given a legitimate chance to beat out Sione Pouha, he might do it. He looks the part at 6-3, 320. The problem Fitch is going to have, like most NFL Europe alumni, is entering training camp after playing a full season in Europe. This is a very tough physical challenge, especially for a player's legs.

S Jamie Thompson - he spent last year on the Jets practice squad after being one of the surprises of last year camp as an undrafted free agent. He is very tough, and seems to have pretty good instincts. But he's going to have the same problem as Fitch. He also played in NFL Europe, and you have to wonder what he will have left for training camp.

TE Jason Pociask - he was the Jets sixth round pick last year out of Wisconsin, but spent the year on injured reserve after hurting his shoulder in training camp. Pociask's future could be at fullback or tight end or both. He was a terrific blocking tight end for the Badgers, and could be a big help to the Jets running game with the rugged blocking style.
