10 Players Who Are Still Available For The Jets

New, comments

After a positive first day, the Jets get back to work tonight. Here are 10 of the best players still available.

NCAA Football: Orange Bowl-Michigan vs Florida State Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

I'm not sure I've given my opinion on the Jets first round selection of Jamal Adams yet...but I love it!

Saying that, it's time to move on to round 2 and 3 tonight. With three selections, the Jets have to continue to enforce the depth of quality on this team. In my opinion there is still more talent on the defensive side of the ball in comparison to the offensive side of the ball left in the draft, but when you're talking specifically around the 2nd round....there is a ton of offensive talent to choose from. So it'll be interesting to see their draft strategy heading into tonight.

Here are the 10 best remaining players in my humble opinion. I haven't included Caleb Brantley and Joe Mixon, as I just don't see them being draftable, especially in the 2nd round.

Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State

Cook is a first round talent and I'm surprised to see him still sitting here. Good balance, good second gear and he shows some patience. He can also cut in a moments notice, and that makes him dangerous. He's got a couple of ball security issues, but he should go early today.

Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama

I'm not completely surprised to see Robinson here. However he does have a tremendous amount of talent. A 3 year starter at left tackle, he may have to move over to the right side. He's a power blocker for sure, the concern is his balance in pass protection. You can live with that in the 2nd round though.

Malik McDowell, DT, Michigan State

McDowell is an explosive talent on the defensive line who lacks consistency. He's got the size, he's got the athleticism but his footwork is terrible and some question his level of effort. When your technique is a mess and there are effort concerns, it's hardly a surprise when you drop out of the first round.

Forrest Lamp, OG, Western Kentucky

Lamp will go early today, he's incredibly versatile, although he'll probably spent the majority of his time at guard, you could plug and play him at center or tackle. He's a smart guy who uses his hands well.

Tim WIlliams, OLB, Alabama

Williams is a quick-twitch pass rusher with electric explosion off the edge. The problem is, that's all he really does. He has the athleticism to become a more complete linebacker, but his hand usage, speed and explosion make him very appealing for someone looking to rush the passer off the edge.

Chris Godwin, WR, Penn State

I firmly believe that whoever selects Godwin will get a player who will produce immediately and for the next 8-10 years. Just a natural pass catcher. He's got good size and strength, his routes are clean and crisp and he shows a real toughness. Who wouldn't want that on their team?

Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina

I rate him higher than most, but he's a tremendous talent with a ton of production at the college level. People argue he doesn't have the speed, but I think that's overstated. He's a pure pass catcher who has excellent balance and body control. He'll make someone very happy today.

Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

Shaheen continued to raise his stock the closer we got to the draft. He's a 6'7, 275lb player who runs well and showcases excellent hands. He's a little rough around the edges, but he's an immediate upgrade for your red-zone offense.

Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee

Kamara seemed to lose some steam as we approached the draft. He's a 3 down back with good hands/speed. He has good acceleration in his cuts and his lateral agility is excellent. He's a very talented guy who should go early in the 2nd round. If he starts falling any further, he'll be an absolute bargain.

Gerald Everett, TE, South Alabama

One of the more natural pass catchers in this draft. He shows good acceleration off the line and catches his fair share of contested balls. He's also a powerful runner with the ball in his hands and can create some extra yards on his own.

The best of the rest:

WR - JuJu Smith-Schuster
