6. The NY Jets could sign Tyler Biadasz

While the Jets will likely be active in the offensive guard market, there's a chance the team could consider adding a center, moving Joe Tippmann to guard in the process. Tippmann struggled with his snapping at points last season and played some of his best football at right guard.

If the Jets go that route, one player who should be near the top of their target list is Dallas Cowboys center Tyler Biadasz. Biadasz is a former Pro Bowler who has started 16+ games in each of the last three seasons.

The former Wisconsin standout didn't allow a single sack between 2021 and 2022 and finished the 2023 season with his best PFF grade to date, earning a 69.2 grade that ranked 14th among 36 qualified centers.

Biadasz is still only 26 years old and is an above-average starting center. He would provide a major boost to the Jets' offensive line if the team is willing to move Tippmann to guard.

5. The NY Jets could sign Kevin Dotson

Another young lineman coming off a career year that could interest the Jets is Kevin Dotson. The former Pittsburgh Steelers fourth-round pick was traded to the Los Angeles Rams prior to the start of the 2023 season, and that change of scenery worked wonders for him.

Dotson started 14 games at right guard for the Rams, earning a stellar 84.4 Pro Football Focus grade that ranked second among all qualified guards. His 88.3 PFF run-block grade also ranked second among qualified players at his position.

Dotson has experience starting at both left and right guard and was genuinely one of the best interior linemen in football this past season. It's not as if he was particularly bad in Pittsburgh, either.

Still at just 27 years old, Dotson is expected to be among the more high-profile offensive linemen on the market this offseason. He comes from a similar offensive scheme in Los Angeles and should be a top target for the Jets.
