New York Jets wide receiver Braxton Berrios comes down with a tremendous touchdown catch from Sam Darnold at camp.

Do not sleep on Braxton Berrios. He may be a bit shorter than other wide receivers (5-foot-9), and he may weight a little less (190 pounds, on paper), but nobody works harder.

On Tuesday at New York Jets camp, the slot wizard came down with a tremendous touchdown catch in the back of the end zone, courtesy of the Jets official Twitter account.

Berrios, 24, originally a sixth-round choice by the New England Patriots in the 2018 NFL Draft, is a kid Joe Douglas scooped up early last season. The Miami University product dressed for all 16 Jet games a year ago—his first taste of regular-season NFL action—and came away with 115 yards on six receptions.

His season highlight came in Week 12 when he took a trailing, late-release seam for 69 yards, down inside the 5-yard line.

Berrios enters the season with a huge opportunity in front of him. With Breshad Perriman out until Saturday, Denzel Mims still out with a hamstring, Vyncint Smith out for at least the next month and Josh Docston opting out for the season, he will certainly find himself in the mix this season.

Two days prior to this Tuesday touchdown, Berrios scampered for another, this time with plenty of YAC after catching one over the middle.

He’s a clear slot guy who fits right behind Jamison Crowder on the depth chart, but, as Adam Gase has declared prior, he wants all of his wide receivers to know all three of the wideout positions on the team. Don’t be surprised if he’s one of the three who start in 11 personnel by the time Week 1 comes our way.
