Round 5, 171st Overall, NY Jets: Jordan Travis, QB, Florida State

Is Jordan Travis going to be Aaron Rodgers' successor? It would be foolish to bank on it, but Travis is an appealing mid-round developmental quarterback prospect who should be very happy to learn behind Rodgers and Tyrod Taylor.

Travis was one of the most exciting players in college football last season, earning ACC Player of the Year honors en route to leading his Florida State Seminoles to an undefeated record. Unfortunately, a broken leg suffered in November ended his team's National Championship hopes and his own Heisman aspirations.

At 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, Travis is an undersized quarterback with modest arm talent, but teams rave about not only his dynamic playmaking ability but his mental makeup. He's a player who got better every year of his college career.

Travis clearly has a ceiling in the NFL, but he's a high-level creator who thrives outside the pocket. If you squint really hard, you might see some shades of Jalen Hurts in his game.

Grade: B

Round 5, 173rd Overall, NY Jets: Isaiah Davis, RB, South Dakota State

This was the most surprising pick of the day for the Jets, and if not for the fact that I just really like Isaiah Davis as a prospect, this grade would be even lower.

Despite drafting a running back in the fourth round, the team doubled down, selecting South Dakota State's Isaiah Davis in the fifth. Davis was an ultra-productive back at SDSU, rushing for over 3,000 yards over the last two seasons combined.

At 6-foot, 220 pounds, Davis is another running back who excels between the tackles, but he has enough wiggle and vision to his game to give him legitimate three-down potential at the next level.

Davis will compete with Braelon Allen and Israel Abanikanda for reps in a young and talented backfield. I like the player, but the fit is certainly questionable.

Grade: C+
