The New York Jets succeeded in making it through free agency without overspending on new additions, but their inaction on the open market has made them extremely reliant on the draft to fill their main remaining needs. 

General manager John Idzik was able to fill some of the roster holes with short-term solutions like Dimitri Patterson and Willie Colon, but there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the status of the defensive backfield and skill position players on offense.

Relying on rookies to fill needs is always risky business, but the Jets picked a good year to do so. This draft is loaded with talent in all seven rounds, especially at the positions where the Jets need it most, particularly wide receiver. 

Here are the remaining needs the Jets must address in the 2014 NFL draft.
