Falcons vs Jets 2015: Several Players To Keep Your Eye On

The Falcons continue their preseason schedule with the New York Jets, and there are some players you should be looking out for.

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Grady Jarrett, Defensive Tackle

The Falcons got a steal of a player when they took Grady Jarrett in the 5th round of the draft this past April, despite being projected to be a 2nd round pick. Making his name beside Vic Beasley while at Clemson, the two together were an obstacle for offensive lines every single week. Grady will get another chance versus the Jets to see some substantial action and allow us to get more of an idea of what kind of player he can be.

Paul Worrilow, Linebacker

Worrilow is a name you've heard a lot this off-season when discussing players who saw the most improvement. The 3rd year Falcon looks bigger and faster than he's ever been, and has began to put doubters to rest (myself included). With a better supporting cast and a scheme tailored to his skill-set, Worrilow could be a serious force for Atlanta's defense in 2015 and beyond.

Phillip Adams, Cornerback

With Trufant sidelined, newly added cornerback Philip Adams will be in the spotlight across from Robert Alford. Adams is a player who's bounced around the league for most of his career, and has earned high praise from Head Coach Dan Quinn for an impressive training camp. It'll be interesting to see how he fares against Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall.

Tevin Coleman/Devonta Freeman, Running Backs

At the time of me writing this, Devonta and Tevin are both game-time decisions. If either of them play, it'll give us the first look we've had at the status of our running attack for the 2015 season. Tevin was a highly touted ball carrier coming out of Indiana, and Freeman is one of the 2nd year pros that NFL fans as a whole are expecting to make strides in their sophomore campaign. The two-headed beast could be a one-man show, but their debut will be one to definitely watch out for.
