New York Jets Top NFL Draft Needs Following Ryan Clady Trade

4. Tight end 

The Jets got barely any production from their tight ends last season. Jace Amaro missed the entire season with an injury while Jeff Cumberland and Kellen Davis were mainly used as blocking dummies. The two combined to catch eight passes for 95 yards and a touchdown last year. Cumberland is now in San Diego and Davis won’t see his role enhanced any time soon.

The problem is the tight end crop isn’t strong in this draft class. Arkansas’ Hunter Henry is by far the top prospect, but he probably isn’t worth picking at No. 20 and probably won’t be around by New York’s next pick.

There are a handful of prospects with second day grades, but they probably aren’t worth a third or fourth round pick. The Jets will likely take their chances on a rebound season from Amaro.
