Round 5, 146th Overall, NY Jets: Eyioma Uwazurike, DT, Iowa State
One of the more under-the-radar needs on the Jets' roster is at defensive tackle. Even with three fewer picks as a result of the Deebo Samuel trade, we still made sure to address the position.
Iowa State's Eyioma Uwazurike is a versatile, experienced defensive lineman with 60 career collegiate games under his belt and experience playing all over the defensive line.
Following a few reasonably productive seasons, Uwazurike put together a career year in 2021 becoming only the second player in Iowa State history to record 9.0 sacks in a season.
Uwazurike could compete for snaps at defensive tackle alongside the likes of Jonathan Marshall and Nathan Shepherd as the Jets look to bolster the depth of their interior defensive line.
Round 5, 163rd Overall, NY Jets: Hassan Haskins, RB, Michigan
Another position that seems like a prime Day 3 target is running back. Even after adding Michael Carter in last year's draft, don't be surprised if the Jets return to the running back market later this month.
If they do, Michigan's Hassan Haskins has the skillset they should be looking for. At 6-foot-1, 228 pounds, Haskins is a big-bodied, bruising tailback who consistently finishes his runs.
While he's limited athletically and is never going to be a burner in open space, Haskins is an accomplished pass-blocker and could be an ideal third-down/short-yardage back in the NFL.
The Jets need a running back who can consistently run between the tackles and Haskins fits the bill. He's an ideal target on Day 3 of the draft.
