Joe Douglas has added some nice new pieces to the Jets' roster that will hopefully pay dividends in the upcoming season. Joe targeted many areas of obvious need, and fans have to be impressed with what they have witnessed. There is still a lot more to be done, and with two more RD 1 picks in 2022, expectations will be high for the franchise to continue to make strides in the right direction.

The Jets came out of the 2021 Draft with no fewer than 3 CBs added to the fold, but I feel that the roster still lacks that #1 guy. A lot of eyes will be on sophomore CB Bryce Hall after he showed some nice flashes at the end of his injury-disrupted rookie campaign. Even if Hall improves hugely, the Jets will still need someone to play opposite, and at this moment in time there would be none better than future superstar Derek Stingley Jr.Stingley, who wears number 24 for LSU, would be a sensational addition to a Robert Saleh Defense, and if he develops as expected, would keep the number 24 jersey here - synonymous with CB excellence.

With the first 4 picks of the 2021 Draft used on the offensive side of the football, you may think that more emphasis may be placed on the defense in 2022. The Jets also used a RD2 on WR Elijah Moore to add to 2020 RD2 pick Denzel Mims, and new Free Agency signing Corey Davis. So why another WR here? Well it's not so much another WR but another weapon to hopefully keep new QB Zach Wilson progressing in the right direction.

Ideally, this pick would be a TE, as I feel it was one of the positions overlooked this year. A lot of pressure will be on Chris Herndon to finally deliver on the potential most Jet fans believe he possesses. Despite the apparent weakness of the TE unit, the value pick here is Clemson WR Justyn Ross. You can't really go wrong with a RD1 WR from Clemson, but if a TE steps up over the upcoming college season, this pick may very well sway in that direction.

JETS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
