The Jets biggest need may not be wide receiver, but if Amari Cooper is on the board at six it will be very hard for the Jets to pass. He is the most polished receiver in this class, and is very NFL-ready. Cooper recorded 124 catches and 16 touchdowns this past season at Alabama. Adding Cooper to a receiver-core that already contains Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker would tremendously help whoever the quarterback is this upcoming season.
Second Round, 37th Overall- Eli Harold, OLB, Virginia
Outside linebacker is a major need for the Jets, as Calvin Pace is currently a starter. After passing on one in round one, Eli Harold would be a pretty good get in round two. Harold is so athletic and has a ton of upside. At 6'3, 247, he is the ideal size for an outside linebacker in Todd Bowles's 3-4 defense. He is a raw prospect, but one that has the makings of a solid player in the NFL.
Third Round, 70th Overall- Ali Marpet, OG, Hobart
The Jets need some young talent on their offensive line. Ferguson, Mangold, and Breno are all getting up in age, and a young guy like Brian Winters has not lived up to expectations. Hobart made a ton of starts at left tackle in college, but should be an NFL guard. He is known for a great work ethic, quick feet, and balance. His lack of experience against quality competition and his shorter than ideal arm length are his knocks.
Fourth Round, 104th Overall- Jeremy Langford, RB, Michigan State
The Jets have three solid backs in Ivory, Powell, and Ridley, but they still should draft a running back. All three are in contract years and Ridley is still rehabbing from an ACL injury. Langford is a work-horse back who thrives through contact and ran a 4.42 at the combine. This past season at Michigan State, Langford rushed for over 1,500 yards and 22 touchdowns.
Seventh Round, 223rd Overall- Chris Bonner, QB, CSU-Pueblo
Many people probably have not heard of Chris Bonner, but I really like him. The quarterback will need some developing, but has serious potential. Bonner is 6'7 and has a cannon. His throws have so much velocity that it caused drops. A big thing about Bonner is he played under center in a pro-style offense. He is worth a flyer.
Seventh Round, 224th Overall- Jeff Luc, ILB, Cincinnati
The Jets resigned David Harris and added guys like Erin Henderson and Joe Mays, but could still use some depth for defense and special teams. Luc is a great run-stopper at inside linebacker, but needs work on passing plays. He forced six fumbles this past season and runs a 4.6. The guy is a serious hitter. I like his potential to develop into a solid contributor.
