NY Jets Pick 6: Jeremy Ruckert, TE, Ohio State
Another player I'm exceptionally high on is Ohio State tight end Jeremy Ruckert. Right now, Ruckert is my TE1 in this class over Trey McBride, and he's making a strong case this week to be TE1 on a number of teams' draft boards.
The pride of Lindenhurst High School on Long Island, Ruckert is a classic case of a player who was underutilized in a stacked Ohio State offense (see Michael Thomas and Terry McLaurin).
At 6-foot-5, 250 pounds, Ruckert has an absurd catch radius and sticky hands to catch nearly everything thrown his way. He's a willing blocker who has the size and competitive drive to continue improving in that area.
We already gave the Jets a tight end a few picks ago, but with a Senior-Bowl-exclusive draft pool, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to add both McBride and Ruckert. Consider the tight end position fixed.
NY Jets Pick 7: Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada
With Jahan Dotson opting out, there weren't a ton of high-profile wide receivers to target. We could have went with Senior Bowl standout Christian Watson or the flashy Jalen Tolbert.
Instead, we opted to go with one of the most explosive, dynamic receivers in this class. Nevada's Romeo Doubs is a true deep threat with the speed and tracking ability to be a big-play threat any time he's on the field.
At 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, Doubs doesn't lack size either. He's a long strider who has been clocked running a sub-4.40 40-yard dash, and that was before he got to college.
The Jets need a player who can take the top off defenses and complement the likes of Elijah Moore and Corey Davis. Romeo Doubs gives them exactly that.
