Round 7, 253rd Overall, NY Jets: Isaiah Davis, RB, South Dakota State

Breece Hall is one of the best running backs in the NFL, but the Jets' running back plan behind him was a disaster in 2023. Expect the team to address the position again this offseason, with Dalvin Cook out of the equation.

South Dakota State's Isaiah Davis fits the archetype of running back the Jets should be looking for. Davis stands at 6-foot, 220 pounds, and thrives as a powerful, between-the-tackles runner. Davis would be a perfect complement to the likes of Hall and Israel Abanikanda.

Round 7, 254th Overall, NY Jets: Devin Leary, QB, Kentucky

With the second of their three compensatory seventh-round picks, the Jets add a developmental backup quarterback in Kentucky's Devin Leary. The former NC State QB transferred to Kentucky as a senior and finished the year with 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Leary is a native of Sicklerville, NJ, having grown up roughly 1.5 hours away from MetLife Stadium. The 24-year-old struggled with inconsistency in college, but he has a live arm and enough arm talent to project as a competent pocket passer at the next level.

Leary can compete for the third-string quarterback job with a chance to develop into a solid backup in the future.

Round 7, 257th Overall, NY Jets: Eyabi Okie-Anoma, EDGE, Charlotte

The Jets are projected to have the final pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, and with their so-called Mr. Irrelevant selection, they landed a former top recruit in Eyabi Okie-Anoma.

Okie-Anoma is a talented, athletically gifted edge rusher prospect who ran into plenty of off-field trouble in college. He was dismissed from both Alabama and Houston, spending time at five different schools in six years.

The Jets took a chance on a similarly "troubled" defensive line prospect in Micheal Clemons a couple of years ago. Okie-Anoma's talent could convince the Jets to do the same again in 2024.
