4. NY Jets target: Dohnovan West, C/OG, Arizona State

The Jets could look to upgrade their interior offensive line as well, and perhaps the best pure center prospect still on the board is Arizona State's Dohnovan West.

West lacks ideal size and mass, but his athleticism and versatility should allow him to hear his name called early Saturday afternoon. Perhaps a team like the Jets could view him as a long-term replacement for Connor McGovern.

3. NY Jets target: Perrion Winfrey, DT, Oklahoma

According to who you ask, Oklahoma's Perrion Winfrey might just be the best player remaining on the board. Winfrey doesn't have the elite traits that others may have, but he's also noticeably short of red flags.

The 21-year-old could step in and play an important role in the Jets' defensive tackle rotation as a rookie with the hope that he can develop into a plus-starter down the line.

2. NY Jets target: Rasheed Walker, OT, Penn State

A former four-star recruit, Rasheed Walker was a three-year starter at Penn State where he helped anchor one of the better offensive lines in football.

Walker started 32 consecutive games at left tackle over the last three years, and he has the traits to become a very successful pro player. He's a very appealing developmental swing tackle.

1. NY Jets target: Verone McKinley III, S, Oregon

Oregon's Verone McKinley III is one of my personal favorite prospects in this draft class, and with the Jets facing a pretty notable lack of talent at the safety position, this is absolutely someone they should target.

He's a ball hawk with 11 interceptions over the last three years, and while he's far from an elite athlete, McKinley shines in the mental aspect of the game. Don't be surprised to see the Jets target a safety and/or draft McKinley on Day 3.
