New York Jets’ Day 2 Wish List

The Jets hit one out of the park Thursday night when Leonard Williams fell into their laps at No. 6 overall. As long as the team doesn’t trade Muhammad Wilkerson, which would be a tough pill for fans to swallow, the Jets will dominate in the trenches with Williams, Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson, as well as Damon Harrison.

While many are wondering how three similar linemen fit together in the same 3-4 front, they shouldn’t be. Todd Bowles will use multiple fronts to get his best players on the field the most, so expect the Jets to run more four-man fronts with either the aging Calvin Pace or the underwhelming Quinton Coples taking more breathers on early downs than last season. Bringing them back in rush situations to replace Harrison would be ideal usage.

Moving onto Friday’s Day 2, there are multiple players available that would fill needs for the Jets and provide appropriate value. New York still has a need for playmakers on offense, whether it’s a space back who can provide a complement to Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley or a speedy wide receiver who can stretch the field. Fortifying the interior offensive line should be in consideration, as well as a pass rusher.
