2. NY Jets target: Larry Ogunjobi, DT

Another heavily rumored candidate to end up with the Jets this summer, Larry Ogunjobi had arguably the best year of his career last season, posting 8.0 sacks and 16 QB hits for the Bengals. He was a constant force amongst the interior pass rush despite his run defense being slightly weaker.

The Jets' depth is not all that strong on the interior. With the confirmation from defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich that the Jets' defensive line would be in constant rotation throughout games, the need for depth on the interior has increased.

While John Franklin-Myers can slide inside on occasion, I think that Ogunjobi would push Sheldon Rankins for a spot as one of the two core interior linemen alongside Quinnen Williams.

This, again, would be a good move for the Jets at the right price, as Ogunjobi would most likely play far more than the other depth signings mentioned due to the rotational system the Jets are implementing.
