9. NY Jets draft target: David Ojabo, EDGE, Michigan

Hutchinson isn't the only talented edge rusher in Michigan's front-four. His running mate, David Ojabo, also has a chance to be drafted as early as the first round come April.

Ojabo has 10 sacks in 11 games this season and has quickly burst onto the scene in his first year as a starter. Only a redshirt sophomore, Ojabo would be one of the younger, least experienced players in next year's draft class if he declares.

He often gets overshadowed by Hutchinson, but don't overlook David Ojabo this weekend.

10. NY Jets draft target: Josh Ross, LB, Michigan

In a talented Michigan defense, Josh Ross oftentimes gets overlooked. But make no mistake, the starting senior linebacker is as important to that defense as any player.

Standing at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, Ross combined excellent speed with a high football IQ and above-average play strength. He's been called the "heart of Michigan's defense" as one of the team's most vocal on-field leaders.

Ross likely won't be an early-round pick, but he's someone who could interest linebacker-needy teams like the Jets on Day 2 or 3 of the draft.
