Round 5, 146th Overall, NY Jets: Rachaad White, RB, Arizona State

The Jets seem to have found their running back of the future in Michael Carter, but that doesn't mean they won't address the position again this offseason. The team is still in need of a powerful, between-the-tackles runner who can sub-in in goal-line situations.

Fortunately, we managed to snag one here in the fifth round in the form of Arizona State's Rachaad White. White stands at a hefty 6-foot-2, 210 pounds and pairs his powerful legs with surprising agility and athleticism.

While he lacks breakaway speed, White is an elusive runner who seemingly never goes down on first contact. On top of that, he was one of the most productive pass-catching backs in the league last season.

In a relatively deep (but not top-heavy) running back class, don't overlook a player like Rachaad White.

Round 5, 159th Overall, NY Jets: Dohnovan West, OG/C, Arizona State

After drafting Alabama's Evan Neal in the first round, the Jets use their final pick on another Arizona State prospect, offensive lineman Dohnovan West.

West is one of the more versatile interior offensive linemen in this year's class with experience playing both guard spots as well as center. He's a little undersized at just 6-foot-3, 305 pounds, but he makes up for it with ample mobility and athleticism.

West struggled a bit at center in 2021 and looks more comfortable as a guard, although his lack of size might lead to some teams overlooking him. But the Jets prefer nimble, athletic offensive linemen and West fits that profile.

He can serve as a quality developmental project who could ideally take over as the right guard of the future down the line.
