NEW YORK JETS
The Jets missed out on the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes and had to settle for Teddy Bridgewater and resigning Josh McCown. While Bridgewater is still young, the Jets traded up to the third pick in the first round with the possibility of drafting a quarterback.
Kelvin Beachum might be good at left tackle, but right side is a question, with Brandon Shell and Brent Qvale struggling. Using a Day 2 pick on someone with left tackle potential would be ideal.
Matt Forte retired and Isaiah Crowell was signed to provide a between-the-tackle runner. Looking to improve their 19th-ranked rushing attack, the Jets will look to draft another running back to go with Crowell and their best back, Bilal Powell.
Wesley Johnson was the 35th-rated center according to Pro Football Focus. Spencer Long and Travis Swanson were signed, but that might be viewed more of a depth move.
Finding an athletic pass rusher to come off the edge would do wonders for this defense and complement those talented interior pass rushers.
For Todd Bowles’ scheme to work, he needs an elite cover corner, and the Jets are hoping the signing of Trumaine Johnson can provide that. Combined with Morris Claiborne re-signing, the Jets are set with their starters but could use a young developmental player to groom and eventually replace Claiborne.
Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse, along the three rookies, give the Jets some quality receivers. What they lack is a big receiver who can win jump balls and help move the chains. There are an abundance of 6-3 or taller receivers in this draft.
