3. NY Jets draft target: Evan Neal, OT, Alabama

On the other side of the ball is Alabama stalwart left tackle Evan Neal. Neal is a mammoth of a tackle prospect standing at 6-foot-6, 360 pounds, although he moves like a man half his size.

Sound familiar? Pairing Neal up with Mekhi Becton could give the Jets one of the best young tackle duos in the NFL. And with many pegging Neal as a top-5 pick, the Jets should be in good position to draft him.

His experience playing right tackle could allow the Jets to shift him over to the right side and solidify the future of their offensive line.

4. NY Jets draft target: Jordan Battle, S, Alabama

One of the more underrated needs on the Jets' roster this offseason will likely be at safety. It seems unlikely that Marcus Maye will return leaving the Jets very thin at the position.

One prospect who they could target is Alabama's Jordan Battle. Battle is a versatile, experienced safety who has received regular playing time in Alabama's defense over the last three years.

He has the versatility to play either as a deep safety or down near the box. Battle is likely more of a Day 3 prospect at this time which could make him an ideal target in the second or third round.
