14. NY Jets target: Curtis Weaver, DE

Curtis Weaver is yet to play in the NFL after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. Weaver was released by Miami in his rookie season (due to an injury) and stashed on the Cleveland Browns' injured reserve.

However, the Browns cut him on Tuesday meaning that 31 other teams will have a chance to snag the once-promising young Boise State product. The Jets could use another pass rusher and Weaver is young with upside.

13. NY Jets target: Dakota Dozier, OG

The Jets could look to bring back a familiar face in the form of fourth-round pick Dakota Dozier. Dozier actually started all 16 games with the Minnesota Vikings last season, but that couldn't save him a roster spot a year later.

Dozier would give the Jets added interior offensive line depth — something the team is desperately in need of. Don't rule out a reunion at some point over the next few days.

12. NY Jets target: Karl Joseph, S

The Jets currently have two healthy safeties on their active roster with Ashtyn Davis expected to miss at least Week 1. With that in mind, Karl Joseph is a player they could consider adding.

A former first-round pick, Joseph's physical style makes him an ideal box safety — something the Jets don't really have on their roster. And he's big and physical enough to even play some sub-linebacker if the Jets decided to go in that direction.
