Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State: "The Jets have no choice but to address the secondary this offseason with question marks at both cornerback and safety. Lattimore is a very gifted athlete for his size with sticky coverage skills."

Rob Rang, Senior NFL Draft Analyst,
Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson: "Watson is a polarizing player in the scouting community, dazzling with his dual-threat ability but throwing 28 interceptions over the past two seasons, most in the FBS. His undeniably impressive track record of playing his best under the bright lights could be more valued on Broadway than elsewhere."

Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU: "Fournette is a top-10 talent with rare size and speed."

February 8**ESPN** Todd McShay, ESPN Draft and College Football Analyst
Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State: "*Lattimore has elite cover skills and good length/size (6-0, 192). He has only one year of starting experience, but he showed good ball production, recording four interceptions and nine pass breakups."

Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU: "I know the Jets have other needs, but Fournette would be a very tempting option to consider."

Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina: "Watson, Trubisky, DeShone Kizer or Patrick Mahomes all come with their question marks. Trubisky, though, also has the physical traits to develop into a gem."

January 30
Lance Zierlein, NFL Media Draft Analyst
Taco Charlton, DE/OLB, Michigan: "Charlton is long and athletic and the perfect combination player as an edge rusher. He can stand up on early downs and put a hand in the ground when the Jets go to their sub-package."

January 19
**ESPN** Mel Kiper, ESPN Draft Guru
Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State: "Lattimore is another first-year starter who jumped to the top of my cornerback rankings with a stellar season. A hamstring injury limited his time on the field in Columbus in 2014 and 2015. Speed, size (6-foot-1, 190) — he has all the traits to be a star."
