The NY Jets are looking to plug a number of roster holes in the 2023 NFL Draft. While it might be difficult to duplicate the success of last year's class, the Jets still can do some damage in this year's draft.

They'll have to as well, with quite a few needs remaining on the team. The Jets can still look to late free agency to address some of their remaining holes, but the 2023 NFL Draft offers a better and cheaper alternative to fill out the roster.

The more players the Jets bring in, however, the more they might have to part ways with. There are a few players on the roster who could see their roles diminish, if not completely disappear, as a result of moves the Jets make in the draft.

The following four players aren't necessarily likely to be released, but it's a possibility if things shake out a certain way in the draft.

4. Denzel Mims, WR, NY Jets

It's been a rocky three years for Denzel Mims with the Jets. Following a promising rookie season, Mims found himself in the doghouse of the new coaching staff and has fallen completely out of the offensive equation.

Some benchings and a trade request later, Mims enters the draft as the fifth wide receiver on the Jets' depth chart. Corey Davis' future remains uncertain, but it's at least possible that the Jets choose to retain him.

If the Jets keep Davis and draft another wide receiver at some point, it would probably make sense to part ways with Mims. Instead of straight-up cutting him, finding a trade partner would make the most sense.

Either way, Mims' roster status is in jeopardy if the Jets add a wide receiver in the draft. Releasing/trading Mims would save the Jets $1.4 million in much-needed cap space.
