Round 4, 109th Overall, NY Jets: Hassan Haskins, RB, Michigan

One of the more underrated needs for the Jets this offseason could be at running back. Michael Carter appears to be a steal of a pick in the fourth round of last year's draft, but the Jets could use another back to complement him.

Ty Johnson is an exciting but limited player and there's no guarantee Tevin Coleman is back next season. The Jets need someone who can run between the tackles and handle goal-line duties. Michigan's Hassan Haskins could be that player.

At 6-foot-1, 220 pounds, Haskins is a bruising back who lacks elite speed but more than makes up for it with his vision and physicality. I could see him being the Rhamondre Stevenson of this year's class and someone who can help form a formidable duo alongside Carter.

Don't rule out the Jets drafting a running back as early as Day 2 in this year's draft. Haskins makes a ton of sense if the Jets go in that direction.

Round 4, 111th Overall, NY Jets: Zach Harrison, EDGE, Ohio State

The Jets are already projected to be loaded at edge rusher next season with Carl Lawson, Bryce Huff, and John Franklin-Myers forming a very strong top-three. But as the Jets learned in 2021, you can never have too many pass rushers.

And that philosophy has guided Robert Saleh throughout his entire coaching career. That's why we snagged one here in the form of the supremely-talented Zach Harrison in Round 4.

Harrison was the No. 1 defensive end coming out of high school and a top-12 recruit. And while he's never lived up to those lofty expectations, the talent is there for Harrison to be a star at the next level if his production could match his traits.

General manager Joe Douglas has swung for the fences with high-upside players in the past and Harrison certainly fits that bill. He projects as an ideal fit in the Jets' attacking 4-3 defense and someone they could look to develop in 2022 and beyond.
