The New York Jets had high hopes for the 2023 season, but unfortunately, they finished with a record of 7-10 for the second year in a row. Their aspirations of winning the Super Bowl were cut short early in the season due to an Achilles injury that veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers sustained in the first game. This marks the fourth consecutive year the team ended the season with ten losses.

The Jets are now looking ahead to the NFL Draft in April as they plan for the team's future.

The team finished with 268 point score while allowing 355 points, they finished 31st in yards per game at 268.6, and struggled at home and on the road, going 4-5 at home and 3-5 on the road.

New York Jets look to build up on offense in 2024 Draft

Taliese Fuaga had a phenomenal 2023 year at Oregon State. He stands at an impressive 6'6 and 334 pounds. When he erupts off the snap, he does so with unhinged tenacity. He constantly seeks to bury defenders, making him an excellent space blocker. New York could benefit from his skills, especially since Aaron Rodgers is returning from a season-ending injury.

It is necessary to have a backup quarterback for Aaron Rodgers, as Zach Wilson did not prove to be a good fit. However, Michael Pratt could be the answer. He is a talented athlete for the quarterback position and meets the necessary criteria for a pocket passer. During his time at Tulane, he threw for 2,406 yards and 90 touchdowns, making him a solid option for the Jets.

Zak Zinter had a fantastic senior season but unfortunately got injured. He broke his tibia and fibula and had to be carted off the field. He missed the rest of the season, which was a shame for him and Michigan. If Zinter can return healthy, he will be slotted into the Jet's starting line immediately.

Keith Randolph Jr. is a 6'5, 270-pound player with significant upper body strength, making him a reliable defender against the run. However, he may not significantly threaten the interior offensive line. During his time at Illinois, Randolph Jr. performed adequately, having 159 tackles and 10 sacks, but the Jets need more assistance in the defensive tackle position.
