Round 5, 145th Overall, NY Jets: Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada

You can never have too many quality wide receivers, and with Jamison Crowder, Braxton Berrios, and Keelan Cole all set to be free agents, the Jets need to add depth.

Nevada's Romeo Doubs not only adds further depth to the team's receiving corps, but he provides a new element to the offense. At 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, Doubs is a vertical downfield threat who can stretch defenses with his speed and tracking ability.

The Jets don't really have someone who can regularly do that on their roster. Elijah Moore can be a vertical threat, but his lack of size often serves as a hindrance in those situations.

Adding Doubs would give Zach Wilson yet another young receiver to develop with while providing the team with the field-stretching wideout they don't currently have.

Round 5, 162nd Overall, NY Jets: Tyler Allgeier, RB, BYU

This offseason should be about helping Zach Wilson in every way possible, and what better way to do that than by reuniting him with his former college backfield-mate?

BYU's Tyler Allgeier is an intriguing mid-round running back prospect who runs with a violent approach and a non-stop motor. In many ways, he's a little reminiscent of Michael Carter, although he is quite a bit bigger.

Allgeier is a downhill runner who can serve as a nice complement to Carter as a change-of-pace and short-yardage back. His experience with Wilson at BYU should not be overlooked either.

The Jets need to continue surrounding Wilson with talent and adding his former college running back is certainly one way to do that.
