Jets RB Braelon Allen has a chance to be Breece Hall's primary backup

Braelon Allen, a 2024 fourth-round pick, wasn't known for his receiving in college -- only 49 catches in three seasons at Wisconsin -- but he demonstrated plenty of ability in OTAs and minicamp. He showed excellent ball skills and terrific body control. He's 235 pounds, yet he was able to split out and play like a smaller back. "If you go back and watch his tape at Wisconsin, he caught the ball well," Jets running backs coach Tony Dews said. Allen has a chance to be Breece Hall's primary backup.

There was slight concern that Allen would only be a rotational goal line back but if he flashes some receiving skills, he could have slight standalone value. He's the back to keep an eye on if anything were to happen to Hall.
