Round 4, 109th Overall, NY Jets: Alec Lindstrom, C, Boston College

Even assuming the Jets sign a guard in free agency, they would still benefit from bolstering their interior offensive line. A player like Alec Lindstrom would help solidify the future of the unit.

Lindstrom comes from a successful NFL bloodline as his brother, Chris, is a former first-round pick of the Atlanta Falcons. While Alec Lindstrom might not be drafted as early as his brother, he's still someone who could carve out a career in the NFL.

The Boston College product is a technically-sound center prospect who lacks elite physical traits but makes up for it with experience and a high football IQ.

He's likely a center-exclusive prospect at the next level and could ideally take over for Connor McGovern in 2023 with the veteran's contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Round 4, 115th Overall, NY Jets: Coby Bryant, CB, Cincinnati

I think it's more likely the Jets make an aggressive move for a cornerback in free agency which is why we waited as long as we did here. The Jets are looking for a true No. 1, but it never hurts to add more depth to the room.

Cincinnati's Coby Bryant has the traits and tools necessary to develop into a long-term starter at the position. At 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, Bryant has excellent length and ball skills.

The Jets like Bryce Hall, but they're looking for a more physically-gifted cornerback who can make plays on the ball and create turnovers. Bryant would give them just that.

On top of that, he has four years of starting experience and was beloved at Cincinnati for his on and off-field leadership. A perfect target for Joe Douglas and the Jets.
