Round 4, 112th Overall, NY Jets: Brandon Coleman, OT/OG, TCU
More offense, this time back to the offensive line. After adding a new starting right tackle in the first round, the Jets add a versatile depth piece in Brandon Coleman here on Day 3.
Coleman is a versatile and talented offensive line prospect who has started at four of the five offensive line spots for TCU over the last two years.
He primarily played guard in 2021 (starting at both guard spots) before transitioning to left tackle in 2022. Coleman has again been playing more left guard for TCU this season.
At 6-foot-6, 320 pounds, Coleman projects as a tackle/guard hybrid at the NFL level, and it's that versatility that should intrigue teams. The Jets need more young pieces on this offensive line.
Round 6, 176th Overall, NY Jets: Joe Milton, QB, Tennessee
Why not take a swing on a high-upside Day 3 quarterback prospect? Aaron Rodgers should be back in 2024, but that doesn't mean the Jets should just neglect the quarterback position.
Tennessee's Joe Milton is about as physically gifted as any Day 3 quarterback prospect you're going to find. The fifth-year senior stands at a massive 6-foot-6, 235 pounds, and has the arm strength to back up his size.
Milton might have the strongest arm in this entire class, and he's also a very good athlete for his size. Of course, he's still a massive work in progress as an overall quarterback, which is why he likely won't be a high pick.
Still, these are the guys you take chances on in the sixth round. Draft Milton, let him develop for a year or two, and maybe, just maybe, you can find your successor to Rodgers on Day 3. His raw talent is worth taking a chance on.
