Round 4, 111th Overall, NY Jets: Rasheed Walker, OT, Penn State

Without a second or third-round pick, the Jets were forced to wait until the fourth round to make their next selection. We were still able to snag a pretty talented player, however.

Penn State's Rasheed Walker is an ideal developmental swing tackle prospect who can ideally provide much-needed depth for the Jets before hopefully developing into a starting-caliber lineman down the line.

At 6-foot-5, 313 pounds, Walker has great size and length for the position that he blends with above-average athleticism and lateral mobility. The 22-year-old was also a highly-regarded leader and team captain at Penn State making him a perfect Joe Douglas prospect.

Walker has experience playing both tackle spots and would be an upgrade over Conor McDermott/Chuma Edoga in the short-term while providing the Jets with extra insurance at offensive tackle.

Round 4, 117th Overall, NY Jets: Terrel Bernard, LB, Baylor

I recently had the opportunity to speak with Terrel Bernard about the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft (cheap plug, yes) and he revealed that the Jets were one of the teams that he had spoken to the most. That shouldn't come as a surprise either.

At just 6-foot-1, 218 pounds, Bernard is undersized for the linebacker position, but his athleticism, range, and motor make him a perfect target for the Jets early on Day 3.

Bernard was a highly-touted locker room leader at Baylor and someone head coach Dave Aranda referred to as the "heart, soul, and character" of his team.

Though he's undersized, Bernard is always around the football and has the speed and athleticism the Jets look for in their linebackers. Much like Walker, Bernard just has "Jets target" written all over him.
