The New York Jets have several holes to fill if they are to improve on last season’s success. Here are 5 potential first round picks in the 2016 NFL draft.

By Gregg Cambareri

Although the New York Jets 2015 season ended in embarrassment, they have much to be proud of. Ten wins in the NFL is no easy task, especially after winning just four the previous season. Regardless of the final outcome, the organization takes some momentum heading into the offseason. Drafting well is essential in the NFL, and the Jets will have their hands full addressing their remaining needs.

Free agency and the NFL combine is going to paint a better picture of who the Jets might look to take–especially considering the several key free agents the Jets could lose this offseason (Muhammad Wilkerson, Damon Harrison, Chris Ivory, etc.) but it’s never too early to speculate who could be the guy at pick number 20 (we’ll also have updated mock drafts as the combine passes and we get closer to the spring).

Let’s take a look at 5 players who GM Mike Maccagnan and company might welcome to Gang Green next season.
