12. Christian Haynes, OG, Connecticut

The Jets definitely don't need to double-up on offensive linemen with their first two picks, but if they do, Connecticut's Christian Haynes is one of the best players, at any position, still available.

Haynes played more than 50 games over five seasons at Connecticut and would give the Jets increased interior depth along their offensive line. There's a chance he could even compete with John Simpson for a starting job.

11. Devontez Walker, WR, North Carolina

One of the best deep threats in this draft class, North Carolina's Devontez Walker ran a blazing 4.36 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine and has the speed and ball-tracking skills to take the top off opposing defenses.

Walker ran a limited route tree at Kent State and North Carolina, but his downfield ability should give him a role early in the NFL. He's a very realistic target for the Jets on Day 2.

10. Audric Estime, RB, Notre Dame

It's hard to imagine the Jets draft a running back on Day 2, but if they do go that route, Notre Dame's Audric Estime would be a perfect fit as a bruising, short-yardage back alongside Breece Hall.

Estime is likely more of an early Day 3 target, and the Jets probably shouldn't be using a Day 2 pick on a running back. Still, he's someone the Jets should keep an eye on, especially as we draw closer to Saturday.

9. Maason Smith, DT, LSU

Once again, the Jets absolutely do not need to draft a defensive lineman, but this is still Robert Saleh's team. Much like with Mohamed Kamara, the Jets brought LSU's Maason Smith in for a top-30 visit — a strong indication that the team is interested.

Smith is a prototypical Saleh defensive tackle whose production never matched his potential in college, but whose athleticism and upside will appeal to NFL teams. The Jets could be one of those teams.
