4. Audric Estime, RB, Notre Dame

Joe Douglas has added a running back in each of his four draft classes with the Jets to this point. There's a decent chance he will make it five in a row this year.

Notre Dame's Audric Estime has been my preferred Jets running back target for months. At 5-foot-11, 222 pounds, Estime is a bruising short-yardage back who would be a perfect complement to Breece Hall and Israel Abanikanda. He should be a fourth-round target.

3. Mohamed Kamara, EDGE, Colorado State

If there ever was an edge rusher in this class for Robert Saleh to fall in love with, it's Mohamed Kamara. The Jets hosted the "Bryce Huff clone" on a top-30 visit, and it's easy to see why the team is interested.

The Newark, NJ native has a lightning-quick first step and plays with a red-hot motor. He's everything Saleh covets in a pass rusher, making him a very realistic Day 3 target for the Jets.

2. Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon

Troy Franklin might be the consensus best player available entering Day 3 of the draft. There were some who believed Franklin could sneak into the first round, which makes his slide all the more surprising.

At 6-foot-1, 176 pounds, Franklin has a thin frame but remains one of the best field stretchers in this class. His downfield upside is reminiscent of a player like D.J. Chark. If he's somehow still on the board when the Jets pick in the fourth round, Franklin should be a serious consideration.

1. Michael Pratt, QB, Tulane

The Jets haven't exactly been secretive about their interest in Tulane quarterback Michael Pratt. If you're placing bets on any player to be drafted by the Jets on Day 3, it should be him.

Pratt has all the baseline tools to be a capable NFL quarterback, and while he lacks any real standout traits, he has the skill set and mental makeup to carve out a lengthy career as a fringe starter/backup. He's someone the Jets seem to be very high on, evidenced by his top-30 visit.
