Current cap space: $63, 475, 814
Team needs: three offensive lineman, TE, two WRs, pass rusher, LBs, RB, secondary
They don’t need to resign any free agents from last year. They can spend their money on better free agents.
Trade CJ Mosley (LB) and Connor McGovern (C) to free up even more cap space and allow the Jets to go after premier free agents. Potential trades: Connor McGovern to Patriots for 6th round pick (173). CJ Mosley to Broncos for 4th round pick (104), 7th round pick (201), and 7th round pick (216).
First 4 round mock draft:
Round 1: Devonta Smith WR Alabama (2nd). Sami Cosmi OT Texas (23rd)
Round 2: Travis Etienne RB Clemson (34th)
Round 3: Dayo Odeyingbo DE Vanderbilt (66th). Paddy Fisher LB Northwestern (86th).
Round 4: Elijah Molden CB Washington (97th). Jared Goldwire OG Louisville (potential trade with Broncos 104).

This team is a lot better on paper than last years Jets team. The only thing they would need to add is maybe another impact WR and a backup FS. Besides that, the Jets will be a young team next year with a lot of potential, we can only hope the GM makes good use out of the plethora of draft picks.
