This situation has been discussed over and over again in the media. However, the fact remains that Mark Sanchez has proven he's not the long-term answer at quarterback for the New York Jets. The other quarterbacks on the roster offer little hope.
Because the Jets have a ton of other needs, it's likely that they look to address this position in the later rounds.
Potential Targets: Syracuse's Ryan Nassib (Round 2), N.C. State's Mike Glennon (Round 3), Arkansas' Tyler Wilson (Round 3) and Tennessee's Tyler Bray (Round 5)
2. Right Tackle
Over the past few years, the Jets have tried to solve their issues at right tackle with the likes of Wayne Hunter and Jason Smith. Neither player was able to lock down the starting job, and this position remains a need.
Rex Ryan will never be able to effectively employ his run-heavy attack without solidifying the offensive line.
Potential Targets: Florida State's Menelik Watson (Round 2), Alabama's D.J. Fluker (Round 2) and Louisiana Tech's Jordan Mills (Round 4)
3. Outside Linebacker
Defense has been the main focus since Ryan took over as head coach. This unit needs to add a few pieces to keep performing at a high level. Finding a pass-rushing outside linebacker is the top need.
New York has solid rushers on the defensive line in Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples but lacks an explosive edge rusher from the linebacker position.
Potential Targets: Oregon's Dion Jordan (Round 1), LSU's Barkevious Mingo (Round 1), Georgia's Jarvis Jones (Round 1) and Auburn's Corey Lemonier (Round 2)
4. Running Back
Mike Goodson and Bilal Powell are not the Jets' answer at running back. Neither has shown more than a glimpse of his potential. With issues at quarterback, New York needs a talented running back to help move the chains.
Potential Targets: Alabama's Eddie Lacy (Round 2) and Michigan State's Le'Veon Bell (Round 3)
At this point in the offseason, Vladimir Ducasse will get another chance to earn a starting job. This should be a concern for everyone involved with the Jets. Despite his natural ability, Ducasse has never fulfilled his potential.
Potential Targets: Alabama's Chance Warmack (Round 1), Kentucky's Larry Warford (Round 2) and North Carolina's Travis Bond (Round 5)
LaRon Landry's decision to sign with the Indianapolis Colts left a hole in the back end of the Jets' defense. As it stands, Antonio Allen and Josh Bush will have the first crack at the starting jobs. Neither has shown enough to breed any type of confidence.
Potential Targets: Florida's Matt Elam (Round 2), LSU's Eric Reid (Round 3) and Fresno State's Phillip Thomas (Round 4)
7. Tight End
New York needs playmakers on offense, and the loss of Dustin Keller didn't help this situation. Jeff Cumberland showed promise last year, but it's tough to expect him to handle the majority of the tight-end targets.
Potential Targets: Stanford's Zach Ertz (Round 2) and Michigan State's Dion Sims (Round 3)
