New, comments

The Jets will continue to improve their team on day three. Here are some players who are still available.

The Jets are three picks into their 2017 NFL draft class, and as things stand they still have six selections left. Now this is an extremely deep draft class, so there is still plenty of talent available. I know a few fans are unhappy about the Jets going defense with their top two picks again, but rest assured that the Jets can still leave this draft with a lot of offensive talent.

Lets dive into five players at QB/RB/OL and TE who should interest the Jets. There is plenty of talent left at WR too, but I wanted to focus in on these four positions.

Quarterbacks

Nathan Peterman - Pittsburgh

I'm not sure how he's still available, but there you go. I consider him as pro-ready as any QB in this draft.

Brad Kaaya - Miami

I thought he should have gone back to school, and it's not surprising to see him drop. He has some great intangibles, but his accuracy is a concern.

Joshua Dobbs - Tennessee

His ball placement is spotty, but he has good size with excellent deep ball accuracy and he's dangerous outside the pocket.

Kyle Sloter - Northern Colorado

He's still a raw prospect with very little experience, but he has a lot of intangibles you look for. Great size, pro system and + arm talent.

Cooper Rush - Central Michigan

Arm strength is a concern, but he is a highly intelligent passer who reads the game well. Jets have shown an interest in pre-draft process.

Running Backs

Marlon Mack - South Florida

Good size and excellent speed. He's a home run threat every time he touches the ball. Does bounce it outside too much, but loads of talent.

Samaje Perine - Oklahoma

Perine is a strong physical back who produced despite not getting as many carries as he should. He's a hard worker with a great attitude (AKA a Maccagnan guy)

Tarik Cohen - North Carolina A&T

You don't get the name the "Human Joystick" for being a thumper. Cohen is a small guy, but he's electric. Very dangerous will the ball in his hands.

Joe Williams - Utah

He's got a couple of red flags so I don't think Maccagnan touches him. However he's got good speed and the ability to create yardage for himself.

Jeremy McNichols - Boise State

Excellent tape and production. He runs with vision and patience and can contribute as a pass catcher as well. Caught 103 passes in college.

Tight End

Jake Butt - Michigan

He'd be a 2nd round pick if it weren't for his injury IMO. He's just a reliable safe pass catcher. Not the most athletic, but he'll be a good TE for 10 years.

Bucky Hodges - Virginia Tech

The opposite of Butt. Hodges has all the athleticism in the world, but he's raw. Drops some very catchable passes, but loads of natural talent.

George Kittle - Iowa

A firm fan-favourite here on GGN. Easy to see why, he's probably the best blocking TE from a technique perspective and his hands are excellent too.

Jordan Leggett - Clemson

I'm not a huge Leggett guy, he's got the hands, the size and the athleticism, but his effort isn't always there.

Anthony Auclair - Laval

I think this guy will be great value here. Good blocker, good hands, good quickness. Level of comp he faced seems to be holding him back.

Offensive Lineman

Dorian Johnson - Pittsburgh (OG)

Surprised Johnson is still here. He's big, he's long, he's tough, he's smart and he's durable. I had him as a 2nd round prospect.

Zach Banner - USC (OT)

A big, naturel drive blocker who has tremendous power. He's a big dude who will need to work to keep his weight in check, but plenty of talent.

Roderick Johnson - Florida State (OT)

Few issues with his footwork, but he's a big, long blindside protector who has the power to drive people off the board in the run game.

David Sharpe - Florida (OT)

I had Sharpe as an early 3rd pick, so good value here. He's a guard at the next level as he tackles tackle quickness. Plays with a good base.

Julie'n Davenport - Bucknell (OT)

You know I like Davenport as a project tackle at the next level. He's raw and his footwork needs work. Good strength, elite length and size, team captain.
