The NY Jets prioritized solidifying their offensive line around Aaron Rodgers on Day 1 of the 2024 NFL Draft with their selection of Penn State offensive tackle Olu Fashanu in the first round.

Fashanu gives the Jets both some much-needed offensive tackle depth in the short term and a hopeful long-term left tackle solution. While many Jets fans may have preferred someone like Brock Bowers, Fashanu functions as both a win-now move and a move for the future.

The Jets' work is far from over, however. The team still has eight draft picks to make (or trade) over the next two days. Here's a look at when the Jets are scheduled to pick again tonight.

When do the NY Jets pick next?

The Jets only have one pick on Day 2 of the 2024 NFL Draft. That pick is slated for the No. 72 overall selection in the third round. The team does not have a second-round pick as a result of the Aaron Rodgers trade from a year ago.

With seven picks now on Day 3 after Thursday night's trade-down, there's a very good chance the Jets could look to move up into the second round. But for now, they only have one pick in the third round tonight.

Recent history of NY Jets Day 2 picks

  • Joe Tippmann (43rd overall, 2023)
  • Breece Hall (36th overall, 2022)
  • Jeremy Ruckert (101st overall, 2022)
  • Elijah Moore (34th overall, 2021)
  • Denzel Mims (59th overall, 2020)
  • Ashtyn Davis (68th overall, 2020)
  • Jabari Zuniga (79th overall, 2020)
  • Jachai Polite (68th overall, 2019)
  • Chuma Edoga (92nd overall, 2019)

Day 2 of the draft has been a mixed bag for the Jets in recent years with more misses than hits, although that trend appears to be changing. Breece Hall and Joe Tippmann give the Jets two foundational pieces to build around on offense.

The remainder of this group, outside of role players like Jeremy Ruckert and Ashtyn Davis, isn't very appealing. Jachai Polite, Jabari Zuniga, and Denzel Mims were complete busts who made a minimal impact during their brief times in the NFL.

Chuma Edoga has developed into a quality fringe starter for the Dallas Cowboys, but his Jets stint was subpar. The same is true for Elijah Moore, who was sent packing after just two seasons with the team.

The hope is that the Jets' Day 2 selection(s) in 2024 will follow the trend of recent years as opposed to the late Mike Maccagnan/early Joe Douglas draft classes.

Last five 72nd overall picks in the NFL Draft

  • Garrett Williams, CB, Arizona Cardinals (2023)
  • Abraham Lucas, OT, Seattle Seahawks (2022)
  • Alim McNeill, DL, Detroit Lions (2021)
  • Josh Jones, OT, Arizona Cardinals (2020)
  • Germaine Pratt, LB, Cincinnati Bengals (2019)

History has proven that teams can still find quality starting-caliber players with the 72nd overall pick. Germaine Pratt, Alim McNeill, and Abraham Lucas have all established themselves as legitimate starters for their respective teams.

Josh Jones has bounced around between a few teams but has still started 24 games in the NFL. He'll be competing for playing time as a member of the Baltimore Ravens in 2024.

As for Garrett Williams, the Syracuse product missed the first half of his rookie season with an injury but returned to start six of the final nine games of the year. He's currently penciled in as the team's starting nickel cornerback next season.
