Round 6, 168th Overall, NY Jets: Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State

Penn State may have had an awful 2020 season, but the one bright spot was the explosion of Jahan Dotson. The wide receiver almost doubled his yardage totals in 2020, racking up 884 yards and eight touchdowns.

The Jets seem to have wide receiver figured out for the moment, with Elijah Moore, Denzel Mims, Corey Davis, and Jamison Crowder rounding out the offense. However, Crowder is in the last year of a contract he took a pay cut on just to remain on the roster.

Adding some more youth to an already young roster couldn't hurt. Although if Dotson builds upon his 2020 campaign, don't expect him to last this long.

Round 6, 188th Overall, NY Jets: Phidarian Mathis, DT, Alabama

What better way to back up an Alabama defensive lineman in Quinnen Williams than with another Alabama defensive lineman in Phidarian Mathis?

Mathis is a powerful defensive tackle that would see time behind Williams, Fatukasi, and Rankins at the very least.

He's raw, but would have great mentors in the beasts that would be ahead of him on the depth chart.

Round 6, 194th Overall, NY Jets: Jeffrey Gunter, DE, Coastal Carolina

The Chanticleers wouldn't have had the season they did in 2020 if not for a few players stepping up in massive ways. Jeffrey Gunter, a transfer from NC State, did just that.

Gunter totaled 6.5 sacks on the season as Coastal Carolina shocked the college football world on their way to an 11-1 record.

Gunter himself comes in with a 6-foot-4, 260-pound frame. His performance in his senior season will hope to help both his school and his draft stock.

Another shocking season by the Chanticleers could have Gunter jumping from the late rounds to the early rounds.
