8. NY Jets target: Bradley Bozeman, C

The Jets already upgraded their interior offensive line in a big way signing Laken Tomlinson, but perhaps they could still look to further solidify the unit.

New York was connected to rumors regarding Baltimore Ravens center Bradley Bozeman and it's unclear if the Jets are still interested. If they are, he's easily the best center still available.

7. NY Jets target: D.J. Chark, WR

The wide receiver market has exploded meaning that it seems unlikely the Jets make a move for one of the top players at the position. If they do, however, D.J. Chark could be high atop their list.

At just 25-years-old, Chark has a 1,000-yard season under his belt and is in desperate need of a change of scenery. He'll get that this offseason, whether with the Jets or another team.

6. NY Jets target: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR/RB

Cordarrelle Patterson would be such a fun player in this Jets' offense. The journeyman special-teamer experienced a bit of a breakout at age 30 last season emerging as a true playmaker in the Atlanta Falcons' offense.

Patterson could serve as a depth receiver, power running back, gadget player, and core special-teamer if the Jets sign him. The Berrios re-signing makes this one less likely too, but it's still fun to imagine Patterson in this offense.

5. NY Jets target: Jordan Whitehead, S

If the Jets miss out on the top safeties on the market, Jordan Whitehead is probably their best bet in tier two. The 24-year-old is more of a typical strong safety who does his best work around the box.

He would be a great fit in Robert Saleh's scheme filling the role that Marcus Maye did last year. Whitehead remains a very realistic target for the Jets.
