New York Jets draft needs: 5 small schools who will help turn the Jets into contenders

Jets QB Sam Darnold is the future and he needs a little help if the Mean Green want to get over the hump. Darnold has weapons but we gave him a few additional weapons to help get the J-E-T-S back on track!

The New York Jets have a new quarterback in Sam Darnold, but they have so many holes. They will need some studs if they want to become contenders, but they can definitely turn things around. Here are their team needs Offensive Tackle, Wide Receiver, Pass Rusher, Cornerback and Running Back. Here are five players we feel that can help turn their team around.

Messiah Rice, OT, Hampton – The 6050, 310 pound offensive tackle from Hampton is a solid player who will definitely make some noise at his pro day. He played at East Carolina University before several years before transferring to the HBCU. Messiah is a big boy with a mean streak and will likely be a free agent. I like this kid and he can compete. Remember his name.

Brody Oliver, WR, Colorado School of Mines – I am a huge fan of Brody Oliver. The kid is a touchdown machine. He will dominate his pro day and I would not be surprised if he ends up being taken in the later rounds of the draft. The Jets could use a reliable wide out and Brody makes sense.

Michael Onuoha, DE, Texas A&M Commerce – The former Oklahoma pass rusher made a huge impact for TAMU Commerce and I think he will make an immediate impact on the Jets. The Jets need a player who can get after the QB, and Michael Onuoha is that guy. The 6050 pass rusher will likely be a priority free agent.

Stephen Denmark, CB, Valdosta State – Denmark is a 6030 defensive back and that has to be intriguing to any NFL team. He is currently considered a priority free agent, but I would not be shocked if he climbs into the draft. Denmark is hoping to make an immediate impact in the NFL like Kenny Moore, another former Blazer in the NFL.

Lance Dunn, RB, North Dakota State University – Lance Dunn is not being talked about enough. This kid can do it all, and while Bruce Anderson is getting all the love from NDSU, Dunn is a stud. We recently interviewed him and I love this kid as a prospect. Dunn is one of the biggest sleepers in the NFL Draft.
