Round 4, 114th Overall, NY Jets: Cooper Beebe, OG, Kansas State

A four-year starter and two-time Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year, Cooper Beebe is one of the most experienced offensive linemen in this year's class. As such, he's someone who could start right away in the NFL.

The Kansas native was a Unanimous All-American selection in 2023 and a finalist for the Outland Trophy, given to the nation's top interior offensive or defensive lineman.

Beebe is a technically sound bulldozer in the run game who uses his raw power and low center of gravity to open holes and flatten opposing defensive linemen.

He's not the most agile guard and his length can be an issue, but Beebe's experience and strength give him immediate starter upside. Beebe would add much-needed depth to the Jets' interior offensive line with a chance to even push for a starting job.

Round 6, 187th Overall, NY Jets: Jaden Crumedy, iDL, Mississippi State

One of the more underrated needs for the Jets this offseason is at defensive tackle. Mississippi State's Jaden Crumedy could be an intriguing Day 2 target, with Quinton Jefferson and Solomon Thomas set to hit free agency.

Crumedy was a four-year starter at Mississippi State, appearing in roughly 40 career college games over the last years. At 6-foot-4, 309 pounds, Crumedy thrives as a big-bodied run defender in the middle of a defense.

While he's nothing special as a pass rusher, Crumedy is one of the better run-defending interior linemen in this draft. That's a role the Jets should be looking to fill this offseason.
