2. The NY Jets have met with: Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State

In such a deep and talented wide receiver class, a player like Jahan Dotson has managed to get overlooked. Make no mistake, however, he's a Round 1 talent who could go on to be one of the most productive receivers from this draft class.

Dotson is a smooth route runner with the versatility to play either in the slot or on the boundary. He has good speed and excellent body control which makes him a dangerous threat with the ball in his hands.

It's unlikely Dotson will be a target for the Jets in the first round, but if he manages to fall to the top of Round 2, it's hard to imagine he won't be in play.

Dotson is one of the best wide receivers in this draft class, and the Jets are likely very well aware of that. Plus, it doesn't hurt that he's a local New Jersey native from Newark.

1. The NY Jets have met with: Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

When speaking to the media this week, Arkansas wide receiver noted that he had met with a host of NFL teams. However, he made sure to point out that one team meeting, in particular, went "really well." That was his meeting with the New York Jets.

Does that mean anything? Probably not. But it does show that the Jets are interested in a prospect who realistically could be a target on Day 1.

Burks has been compared to the likes of A.J. Brown and Deebo Samuel given his size and ability to make plays after the catch. He could thrive in a Mike LaFleur system that emphasizes YAC ability as a high-volume target.

A wide receiver trio of Burks, Elijah Moore, and Corey Davis has a ton of potential, and it might just be a reality come next month.
