The NY Jets will have an abundance of draft capital to use next year when they carry roughly nine picks, including as many as four inside the top-50, into the 2022 NFL Draft.

It's going to be another busy offseason for Joe Douglas and company as the Jets look to continue reconstructing their roster. Their efforts in the 2021 NFL Draft are already paying dividends.

While rookie quarterback Zach Wilson remains a question mark, other rookies such as Alijah Vera-Tucker, Elijah Moore, Michael Carter, and Michael Carter II have already shined in starting roles early in their careers.

This year's draft class has the chance to be something very special for the Jets organization. But their work is far from done.

The roster still has its fair share of holes as it's clear the Jets still need to continue rebuilding their young core. That will continue in this April's 2022 NFL Draft.

While still a few months out from the draft, the scouting grind never stops for the organization. And for fans who might want to keep an eye on some of the best prospects in this year's class, this weekend's slate of college games provides a golden opportunity.

Let's take a look at nine NFL Draft prospects to watch during this weekend's conference championship games.
