The NY Jets have only made two picks through the first two days of the 2024 NFL Draft, but you'd be hard-pressed to find many teams who have had a more successful draft to this point.

Olu Fashanu and Malachi Corley both fill immediate and future needs as potential building blocks in the Jets' offense. But with five picks still remaining entering Day 3, the Jets have the ability to make some more waves in this year's draft.

The good news is that there are still quite a few very intriguing players left on the board. Let's take a look at 15 of the most appealing targets for the Jets on Day 3 of the draft.

15. Dadrion Taylor-Demerson, S, Texas Tech

If there's one position on defense that remains a need for the Jets, it's the safety position. Texas Tech's Dadrion Taylor-Demerson is one of the top safeties still available entering Day 3.

Taylor-Demerson is undersized at just 5-foot-10, 197 pounds, but he's an outstanding athlete who offers versatility as a nickel corner and core special teamer. He could be on the Jets' radar in the fourth round.

14. Devontez Walker, WR, North Carolina

The Jets could still add another wide receiver even after drafting Malachi Corley in the third round. One player who could serve as a perfect complement to Corley is North Carolina's Devontez Walker.

The former Kent State transfer is one of the best deep threats in this class, with 4.36 speed and excellent ball-tracking ability. The Jets could double up and take another wide receiver with one of their three fourth-round picks.

13. Ja'Tavion Sanders, TE, Texas

The Jets passed on drafting Georgia's Brock Bowers in the first round, but if they're still considering adding a matchup-nightmare tight end in this draft, perhaps Texas' Ja'Tavion Sanders could interest them.

Sanders is more of an oversized wide receiver/H-back, who could essentially fill the role Bowers' would've occupied. He would be a nice complement to Tyler Conklin and Jeremy Ruckert if the Jets want to add another tight end.
