17. NY Jets target: Thomas Graham Jr., CB

A sixth-round pick in this year's draft, Thomas Graham Jr. was a surprise cut as the Chicago Bears are hoping he passes through waivers so that they could add him to their practice squad.

But with the Jets looking to stack up on as much young cornerback depth as they can, Graham could be an interesting target.

16. NY Jets target: Joseph Jones, LB

Joseph Jones is a veteran linebacker who brings plenty of special-teams experience to the table. He's played in over 60 percent of his team's special-teams snaps over the last three years including over 75 percent in two of those seasons.

The Jets could use additional linebacker depth, and if they're looking for more of a special-teamer, they could opt to bring in Jones instead of re-signing Noah Dawkins.

15. NY Jets target: Josh Bynes, LB

Another veteran linebacker, Josh Bynes provides a bit more experience having started 63 games over the course of his 10-year career including all 16 with the Cincinnati Bengals last year.

Much like Jones, Bynes would give the Jets additional linebacker depth which the team sorely needs at the moment. It's worth noting that Bynes began his career with the Baltimore Ravens during Joe Douglas' tenure with the organization.
