Ranking The New York Jets First-Round NFL Draft Candidates

3. Darron Lee, OLB, Ohio State

The hottest name (excluding Lynch) surrounding the Jets is Ohio State outside linebacker Darron Lee.

The tough thing to project about Lee is where he fits into an NFL scheme. Can he actually fit on the outside of a 3-4, or is he purely a WILL in a 4-3? Odds are he’s not big enough to be a pure outside guy.

Although he’s a little small for his position, his relentless pursuit of the ball brings on rave reviews.

He’s an extremely talented choice, but tough to fit into Todd Bowles‘s defense.
