The NFL draft came and went, and while the New York Jets addressed some needs, one gaping hole remains.

The Jets did not select an offensive tackle, leaving incumbent Wayne Hunter at the top of the depth chart for now.

Hunter, along with Eric Smith at safety, were the two glaring weaknesses in the Jets starting lineup a season ago. New York was able to pick up a pair of safeties in the draft and also signed free agent LaRon Landry.

Former Bengals running back Cedric Benson is arguably the most talented unsigned free agent. You have to think he would fit well into Rex Ryan's ground-and-pound approach, right?
