Round 3, 80th Overall, NY Jets: Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina

The Jets completely blundered the wide receiver position this offseason. Garrett Wilson is a star, but the lack of talent around him has become increasingly apparent as the season has progressed.

Although a Davante Adams trade could be looming, the Jets should absolutely look to address the position in the 2024 draft as well. South Carolina's Xavier Legette could be a steal in the third round.

Legette is a human highlight reel who, at 6-foot-3, 227 pounds, moves like a man half his size. He's a dynamic downfield threat with outstanding straight-line speed and an excellent catch radius.

There's a good chance Legette will continue to rise up draft boards as we draw closer to the draft. For now, however, I was thrilled to land him at pick No. 80 overall.

Round 4, 105th Overall, NY Jets: Ladd McConkey, WR, Georgia

The Jets desperately need wide receiver help, so much so that I have no issue doubling up at the position here. Georgia's Ladd McConkey is the first of two Jets fourth-round selections.

McConkey is a very different type of receiver than Legette. At 5-foot-11, 185 pounds, McConkey is a surgical route-runner with excellent hands and ridiculous change-of-direction skills.

He's an ideal YAC slot receiver who is exactly what this Jets offense needs. Honestly, his film is reminiscent of a souped-up Hunter Renfrow — everyone's favorite Jets trade deadline target.

McConkey is probably even more of a playmaker than Renfrow. He's another guy I assume will climb up draft boards over the coming months, but I love the idea of pairing him with Xavier Legette on the Jets.
