The NY Jets landed a player they hope will be their left tackle of the future when they selected Penn State offensive tackle Olu Fashanu in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft. But the fun is just getting started.

While the Jets are only slated to have one pick on Day 2 (No. 72 overall), the team has ample Day 3 ammunition, especially after Thursday night's trade-down, to move up if need be.

There are still quite a few appealing targets remaining as we enter the second day of the draft. The following 15 players aren't necessarily the best players available, but they are some of the most high-profile and realistic Jets targets still on the board.

Let's take a look at 15 of the best Jets targets remaining after Day 1 of the 2024 NFL Draft.

15. Cole Bishop, S, Utah

If the Jets have any defensive position that still needs addressing, it's the safety position. Utah's Cole Bishop is a downhill, physical safety who has the range and football IQ needed to be a day-one contributor at the NFL level.

Bishop can join a safety room that features the likes of Chuck Clark, Tony Adams, and Ashtyn Davis, with the thought that he could be Clark's future replacement. He should be available if the Jets stay put at No. 72 overall.

14. Mohamed Kamara, EDGE, Colorado State

The Jets don't need to draft an edge rusher by any means, but Robert Saleh likely took one look at Colorado State's Mohamed Kamara and instantly fell in love. There's a reason the Jets brought Kamara in for a top-30 visit.

Although he's undersized, Kamara has a lightning-quick first step and plays with a red-hot motor that has many drawing comparisons to Bryce Huff. He's definitely a possible mid-round target for the Jets, even if many fans would prefer the team go in a different direction.

13. Ja'Lynn Polk, WR, Washington

The Jets seem likely to target a wide receiver on Day 2 of the draft, and one player who should catch their eye, if he's still available, is Washington's Ja'Lynn Polk.

After missing on one Washington wide receiver in the first round, the Jets could draft a different one on Day 2 in the form of the 6-foot-1, 203-pound Polk. He's a projected Day 2 pick.
