The NFL Scouting Combine answered many of the Jets' biggest draft questions, as the men separated themselves from the boys in a series of substantial athletic drills.
Many of Gang Green's draft targets excelled, while others failed to live up to gaudy expectations.
Here are the seven biggest combine takeaways for the New York Jets.
Melvin Ingram impressed scouts at the combine this past week, as he showed off his superb athleticism in a series of tough drills.
Ingram ran a terrific 4.79 40, and he had natural acceleration and burst on other drills as well.
The South Carolina product proved that he has the versatility to make the move from defensive end to outside linebacker in a 3-4 system.
If the athletic freak falls to Gang Green in the first round, then Mike Tannenbaum and company will have to pull the trigger.
Ingram will be a game-changing pass rusher at the next level.
Courtney Upshaw may have hurt his draft stock at the combine, as he chose not to participate in the 40-yard dash and looked rigid in other drills.
Upshaw is a terrific all-around outside linebacker, but his athleticism can be questioned.
The Crimson Tide star does not possess game-changing speed or strength.
Upshaw always seemed to manage to get to the passer in college, but in an NFL dominated by superb athletes, he could struggle at rushing the quarterback.
Upshaw's Pro Day could decide his fate on draft day.
Cordy Glenn will excel at the next level.
The Georgia product has outstanding athleticism, evidenced by his impressive 40-yard dash time and his success at positional drills.
Glenn has the versatility to play both right tackle and guard, two of New York's biggest need positions.
The mammoth All-American has all the traits of a future NFL star, and he will be largely desired on draft day by the Jets.
The Jets are in serious need of a dynamic playmaker opposite David Harris at inside linebacker.
Vontaze Burfict was looked at as a potential first-round pick for the Jets earlier this year, but after a subpar combine, he seriously hurt his draft stock.
Burfict's anger problems have been questioned since his debut at Arizona State, but his athleticism has always been considered elite.
However, a 4.93 40-yard dash has teams running away from the Pac-12 star.
Burfict may slide down a few rounds in this April's draft as a result of the poor showing at the combine.
The Jets will be looking in the other direction until at least the middle rounds.
After putting on an amazing show this week at the scouting combine, Michael Floyd has now established himself as the No. 2 wide receiver in this year's draft.
Floyd ran a 4.42 40-yard dash, which is quite a feat for a man his size.
The Notre Dame star is a dangerous deep threat, and he would be a versatile weapon in the Jets passing attack. He would finally give Mark Sanchez a true No. 2 wide receiver opposite Santonio Holmes, and he could potentially develop into a No. 1 receiver in the Big Apple.
Floyd has the size, speed and hands to be an elite wideout at the next level.
Mychal Kendricks shot himself up draft boards with an outstanding scouting combine.
Kendricks ran the 40-yard dash faster than any other inside linebacker in the class.
The California star is still pretty raw, but he possesses arguably more pure athleticism than any other player in this year's draft.
Kendricks is a complete player, as he is able to rush the passer, drop back in pass coverage and shut down the opposing running game.
He would be a force opposite David Harris.
