Round 2: Forrest Lamp, OG, Western Kentucky

This offseason got off to a fast start for Mike Maccagnan, who locked up right guard, Brian Winters to a four-year contract extension.

The oft-injured lineman has yet to finish a complete season, yet showed enough consistency prior to his season-ending injury in Week 15 to garner a new deal.



Teamed with James Carpenter for a majority of the season, the tandem played well and developed a rapport that could translate into consistency on the O-line. The rest of line is certainly questionable, with decisions looming for Nick Mangold and Ryan Clady. Brandon Shell showed some prowess and may have solidified his standing as the right tackle of the future.

With many questions unanswered, the Jets could use their second round pick to select Western Kentucky’s, Forrest Lamp. Lamp a four-year starter at left tackle for the Hilltoppers has projected as a guard at the next level.

This was evident at the Senior Bowl where Lamp did not impress at tackle, but once moved inside to guard showed a dominance when matched up even the superior pass rushers, such as Clemson’s Carlos Watkins.

Due to the health of Brian Winters and inexperience of James Carpenter, Lamp may be a prospect that the Jets would find hard to pass on in the second round.

Alternative Pick: Dan Feeney, OG, Indiana
