3 moves still left for NY Jets to make after the 2023 NFL Draft
By Justin Fried
The NY Jets were able to address quite a few roster holes in the 2023 NFL Draft. While the team didn't add any guaranteed Week 1 starters with their seven picks, they did bolster the roster with important depth.
The offensive and defensive lines were strengthened, positions like linebacker and safety were added to, and the team even managed to likely complete their running back and tight end rooms.
This year's draft was a productive one for the Jets, even if it likely won't be able to match the production of the team's 2022 draft class. That doesn't mean their work is over, however. Far from it.
Now that the Aaron Rodgers trade has been finalized and the draft is over, the Jets can finally get to work on a few late free-agency signings. Signings made at this time no longer count toward the compensatory pick formula for next year.
The Jets have already been one of the most active teams in late free agency, signing offensive lineman Billy Turner and defensive tackle Al Woods to contracts this week.
Turner adds to a suddenly stacked Jets' offensive line that might genuinely be one of the deepest position groups on the roster. As for Woods, he addresses an immediate and important need as the team's likely starting 1-tech defensive tackle.
Turner and Woods are both welcome additions, but the Jets still have a few more moves they could make before the season begins. From signing additional free agents to re-signing their own, these three moves should be priorities for the Jets moving forward.
Let's take a look at three roster moves the Jets should make following the 2023 NFL Draft.
