4. The NY Jets could target OT Trevor Penning

The Jets have plenty of holes to fill, and if those holes that are filled in Round 1 include cornerback, edge rusher, or wide receiver, we could see them turn to second-tier offensive linemen for depth. Enter Trevor Penning.

Like all the players on this list, Penning brings the aggressiveness that head coach Robert Saleh adores, but unlike the others, there's a chance he could be had with pick No. 35 or No. 38.

If that’s the way the board falls for the Jets, getting Penning in the second round for depth and insurance would be fantastic, and could insure the talent on this line going forward.


5. The NY Jets could target OG Kenyon Green

While the likes of Linderbaum may be gotten late in the first round with a trade, the Jets may not want to give away pieces to do that, and one more player that should be available on Day 2 is Texas A&M’s Kenyon Green.

Green is seen as one of, if not the top guard in the 2022 NFL Draft, and while the Jets are set at that position with Vera-Tucker and Tomlinson, the depth is something that could be valuable if the injury curse was to strike Gang Green once more.

This may not be a popular pick at No. 35, but if the Jets waited until No. 38 and had already filled holes at edge rusher, wide receiver, and potentially cornerback, Green would be a great addition to a line that has suddenly become one of the best in the AFC, with the potential to be one of the best in the entire NFL.

Green's experience playing tackle makes him an even more intriguing pick at this spot.
