4. NY Jets target: Myles Jack, LB

Myles Jack wouldn't exactly be a "value signing" either, for obvious reasons. And at this stage, it's hard to see the Jets paying what it will take to land him in New York.

Nonetheless, he's a perfect fit for what the Jets are looking for at linebacker and his experience with both Jeff Ulbrich and Robert Saleh is enough to at least keep him on the team's radar.

3. NY Jets target: Riley Reiff, OT

If the Jets want an experienced, productive swing tackle and they're willing to pay a little extra money, someone like Riley Reiff should be high on their list of targets.

The 10-year NFL veteran has started 139 career games playing both left and most recently right tackle for the AFC Champion Cincinnati Bengals. If the Jets can convince him to sign on as a swing tackle, you probably aren't going to find a better option.

2. NY Jets target: Derrick Nnadi, DT

The Jets desperately need to improve their interior defense with defensive tackle looking like a pretty big need right now. After losing Folorunso Fatukasi in free agency, my favorite option to fill that role is Derrick Nnadi.

At just 25-years-old, Nnadi is a talented run defender who has been the Chiefs' starting 1-technique/nose tackle for the better part of the last four years. He fits what they're looking for and is young enough to continue growing as a player.

1. NY Jets target: Cornelius Lucas, OT

Consider this the more affordable (and realistic) Riley Reiff option. Cornelius Lucas has spent the last few years in Washington and Chicago serving as one of the NFL's premier swing tackles.

He's started 23 games over the last three seasons, consistently graded out well with PFF, and has experience playing both tackle positions. If he doesn't land a starting job somewhere, the Jets should be first in line to give Lucas a call.
