2. RB Braelon Allen

A 240-pound power back with more speed than most players his size, Allen seems to have a leg up over Davis and Abanikanda for the RB2 role. Allen, still just 20 years old, figures to play a part in a Jets offense coordinated by a coach in Nathaniel Hackett who loves to split up carries between backs.

While Breece Hall is a playmaking speed demon, Allen could be a nice powerful component that plays a role as a rookie. Allen may have seen his stats dip in his last year at Wisconsin, but moving from an Air Raid offense to a power running scheme might lead to a more productive season in the pros.

Malachi Corley could start for the NY Jets

1. WR Malachi Corley

Corley is a very unique player who is better with the ball in his hands than making plays deep down the field. Even with his limitations, Corley is a favorite to emerge as the team's No. 3 wide receiver and a valuable member of the team's base offense.

Corley is getting comparisons to Deebo Samuel early in his career due to his style of play. If he turns into half of that player in an offense that already features Garrett Wilson and Mike Williams in the wide receiver room, the Jets will have one of the steals of the entire draft on their hands.
