The NY Jets need tight end help. That's a phrase that could have been uttered at any point over the last decade and still represented the truth.
The Jets have been searching for a reliable tight end since the days of Dustin Keller, and truth be told, the position has been put on the back burner for far too long.
From failed draft picks such as Jace Amaro and Chris Herndon to stop-gap veterans like Austin Seferian-Jenkins and more recently Ryan Griffin/Tyler Kroft, the Jets have failed to adequately address the position.
And lest we forget the glory days of Kellen Davis and Brandon Bostick. The Jets' tight end position has been a hodgepodge of underperforming talent for the better part of the last decade.
This offseason, it would be wise for the team to finally address the position in a serious manner.
No more stop-gaps, no more failed mid-round picks. The Jets need to target a tight end, and they need to do so early. It's time that the team invests a significant asset into a position that should be a focal point of the offense.
Let's take an early look at four tight end prospects the Jets might target in the 2022 NFL Draft.
