In the latest episode of The Jet Press Podcast, Justin Fried and Mike Luciano recap the NY Jets' 2024 NFL Draft, discuss the John Franklin-Myers trade, and break down some undrafted free agents that could make the 53-man roster.

Justin and Mike sat down to discuss the entire Jets' 2024 draft class, breaking down every player from Olu Fashanu to Jaylen Key. Did the Jets make the right decision in the first round? Should Brock Bowers have been the pick instead?

Malachi Corley is one of the most exciting players in the Jets' 2024 draft class, and it seems as though the Jets had him circled as a target for all of Day 2. What should Jets fans expect from him both as a rookie and moving forward?

The Jets surprised some fans by selecting two running backs in this year's draft. Justin and Mike analyze the expected roles of Braelon Allen and Isaiah Davis and discuss what this means for Israel Abanikanda.

The Jets also added a new developmental QB3 in the form of former Florid State star Jordan Travis. Can Travis actually develop into Aaron Rodgers' future successor? What is his ceiling in the NFL?

Justin and Mike also discussed the Jets' Day 3 picks of Qwan'tez Stiggers and Jaylen Key. Stiggers has one of the most inspirational stories in professional sports.

What about the John Franklin-Myers trade? Did the Jets make a mistake dumping Franklin-Myers for essentially nothing or was this a necessary move? Justin and Mike have differing opinions.

Finally, we broke down a pair of undrafted players Jets fans should keep an eye on. Miami's Leonard Taylor III and Connecticut's Eric Watts could both make strong pushes for the 53-man roster.
