Round 5, 144th Overall, NY Jets: Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada

The third consecutive prospect the Jets will be coaching at the Senior Bowl, Romeo Doubs possesses a lot of the same traits that Asamoah does. His speed is what truly sets him apart.

Doubs is a true deep threat who has been clocked at a 40-yard dash time as low as 4.36 in the past, and he might run even faster at the Combine. He combines that speed with good height at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds.

At this stage, Doubs is far from a polished all-around receiver. His route tree is a little underdeveloped, but he showed no issues separating at Nevada, especially when using his speed to take the top off defenses.

The Jets need someone who can serve as a vertical threat in their offense, and even though this isn't the high-profile draft-day wide receiver addition most probably wanted (that could come via trade), Doubs is still a good pick at this spot.

Round 5, 161st Overall, NY Jets: Zaquandre White, RB, South Carolina

This may not be a top-heavy running back class, but there are quite a few intriguing options on Day 2 and Day 3. South Carolina's Zaquandre White is probably one of the most unheralded of them all.

A former Florida State recruit, White transferred to South Carolina but didn't find immediate playing time. In fact, he had just 16 career carries to his name entering his senior season.

White was more of a rotational back for the first half of his senior year before taking over as the lead guy around the halfway point. At 6-foot-1, 215 pounds, White has good size for the position and runs with balance and enough agility to make plays in open space.

White is a well-rounded running back who can contribute in the passing game and has very little tread on his tire. He's someone who should not be overlooked.
