Round 4, 108th Overall, NY Jets: JoJo Domann, LB, Nebraska

One of the more underrated needs for the Jets this offseason is at the linebacker position. Nebraska's JoJo Domann fits the mold of what the team is looking for with their linebackers.

A former safety (sound familiar?), Domann is your average modern-day NFL linebacker with the coverage ability to be a three-down player at the next level.

He's a little undersized for the position at only 6-foot-1, 230 pounds, but he makes up for it with sideline-to-sideline speed and experience. That said, his "experience" could cause his stock to drop as he's already 24-years-old.

Still, Domann could step in as a potential day-one starter for the Jets filling the Jarrad Davis role in 2022.

Round 4, 114th Overall, NY Jets: Tykee Smith, S, Georgia

This is another one of those situations where the Jets' moves in free agency could drastically change how they approach the draft. I'm working under the assumption that the Jets add 1-2 starters at the safety position in free agency.

If not, this becomes a much more dire need. But in this scenario, Georgia's Tykee Smith could be a very intriguing target on Day 3 of the draft.

At only 5-foot-10, 198 pounds, Smith is undersized for the position, but size has never been his selling point. Smith is a good athlete with the versatility to excel both at safety and nickel corner making him a valuable chess piece for any defense.

If the Jets go out and sign someone like Marcus Williams, Smith could be an excellent complement to the current New Orleans Saints standout.
