4. NY Jets target: Ricky Seals-Jones, TE, Washington Football Team

The Jets have one of the weakest tight end rooms in football, but they could look to upgrade the position with the addition of the exciting Ricky Seals-Jones.

At 6-foot-5, 243 pounds, few players in the NFL have the size/athleticism blend that Seals-Jones does. He's an excellent red zone threat who had four touchdowns on just 14 catches in 2019.

The Jets could use a player like that, and it seems as though Seals-Jones might be getting the slip in Washington. Logan Thomas and John Bates are locks while Seals-Jones is fighting with former Chilean national basketball player Sammis Reyes for the final spot.

If he doesn't make the cut, the Jets, or another team, could pounce.

3. NY Jets target: Yodny Cajuste, OT, New England Patriots

The Patriots have made a living out of poaching players from the Jets, but maybe this time, the roles could be reversed.

Much like Hurd, Yodny Cajuste is another 2019 third-round pick that is yet to play in an NFL game due to injuries. A quad injury kept Cajuste sidelined his rookie year before a knee injury kept him out all of last year.

Now, Cajuste finds himself on the roster bubble and there's speculation the Patriots might try to cut him and sneak him onto their practice squad.

If that's the case, the Jets should try to make sure that doesn't happen by claiming the athletic offensive tackle off waivers. He can be their new Chuma Edoga — a high upside athletic swing tackle they try to develop into a starter.
