3. The NY Jets could move running back Tevin Coleman

Tevin Coleman is one of the most versatile running backs in the league, but his role with the Jets has really dropped after the draft.

Coleman's production when healthy has been solid for an RB2. Last season he averaged 4.2 yards per carry accounting for 356 total yards. In his career, he's recorded roughly 3,300 total rushing yards.

Versatility is the name of the game for Coleman, and that is shown with his receiving numbers. In his seven-year career, he has hauled in 1,200 yards receiving making him a valuable RB2 in a locker room.

Now the issue is Coleman's fit on the Jets.

He simply does not have the skill to compete with Michael Carter nor Breece Hall being RB2 after selecting him in the second round of the most recent draft.

With the likes of Ty Johnson and La'Mical Perine on the roster as well, the most viable option to be traded seems to be Coleman.

Kamu Grugier-Hill would instantly beef up the linebacker room for the Jets. He had himself a career year recording 108 total combined tackles last season.

After receiving just a one-year deal by the Texans this past offseason, the Jets could easily extend his contract with the cap space they do have available.

After not drafting a linebacker in the most recent draft, the number one need for New York is to bring in linebackers, and Grugier-Hill is a terrific one that could make an impact on day one.
