12. NY Jets target: David Ojabo, EDGE, Michigan

I know, I know, another edge rusher. But there's reason to believe that David Ojabo makes more sense for the Jets than any other pass rusher on this list.

Ojabo is a traits-based, high-upside edge rusher who is recovering from a torn Achilles suffered in March. He won't be around for much of his rookie season, but given how deep the Jets are at defensive end, they wouldn't need him to contribute immediately. This would be a pick for the future.

11. NY Jets target: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson

Clemson's Andrew Booth Jr. was once seen as a potential top-15 pick in the draft, but his stock fell quite a bit over the last few weeks. Still, in such a talented cornerback class, I'd expect Booth to go very early on Day 2.

Booth is a fluid athlete who, at just 21-years-old, still has plenty of room to grow. Again, the Jets don't need another cornerback, but Booth is undoubtedly one of the top talents still available. For that reason, he makes the list.

10. NY Jets target: Christian Harris, LB, Alabama

Linebacker is one of the biggest needs remaining on the Jets roster as we enter Day 2, and this is around the range where you might start to see the team address the position.

Alabama's Christian Harris was a three-year starter in one of the best defenses in the country and has the athletic traits that Robert Saleh and the Jets love at the linebacker position.

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

Another position the Jets are very likely to target on Day 2 is defensive tackle. While the Jets are six deep at defensive end, their interior depth is lacking at the moment.

Oklahoma's Perrion Winfrey is a two-year standout at Oklahoma with an impressive blend of size, speed, and motor. He's tailor-made for a Robert Saleh defense if the Jets are looking to bolster their 3-technique depth.
