16. NY Jets target: Arnold Ebiketie, EDGE, Penn State

We still have a couple more edge rushers on this list, just as a forewarning. Penn State's Arnold Ebiketie is an explosive pass rusher who's a work in progress against the run, but whose athletic traits give him a high ceiling.

Once again, it's hard to see the Jets drafting another edge rusher this high, but if they want to shoot for the stars, Ebiketie would be an exciting pick.

15. NY Jets target: Kenneth Walker III, RB, Michigan State

Now we get to a position the Jets could feasibly target. Michigan State's Kenneth Walker III is a plug-and-play instant contributor and arguably the best running back in this class.

Pairing the 2021 Doak Walker Award winner with former fourth-round pick Michael Carter would give the Jets one of the best young running back duos in the NFL as they look to continue bolstering their supporting cast around Zach Wilson.

14. NY Jets target: Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan

Even after adding Garrett Wilson on Day 1, I wouldn't be surprised at all to see the Jets draft another receiver. If they're looking to do so at 38, their best bet might be Western Michigan's Skyy Moore.

Moore is undersized at just 5-foot-9, but he's a physically and mentally tough receiver who has no issues making catches over the middle of the field. If the Jets want to go five deep at wide receiver, Moore could be an intriguing target.

13. NY Jets target: Cam Jurgens, C/OG, Nebraska

38 might be a little early to target a player like Nebraska's Cam Jurgens, but he certainly makes sense for the Jets. Seen as probably the second-best center prospect in this class behind Tyler Linderbaum, Jurgens is a potential day-one starter who projects best in a zone-blocking scheme.

Would the Jets consider cutting Connor McGovern to make way for Jurgens or would they have Jurgens sit on the bench for a year? That much is unclear. Either way, he's someone to at least keep an eye on.
