A Lesson Learned – New York Jets 2024 Draft Profile

“With great quarterbacks, comes great responsibility,” is what someone should have told the New York Jets entering the 2023 season. They were primed for an AFC East takeover after adding legendary signal caller Aaron Rodgers and a plethora of receivers. They saw their hopes go up in smoke after Rodgers tore his achilles tendon during their opening game.

They now enter the 2024 draft season looking to hone the power they have and put the proper pieces in place to succeed.

Tyler Guyton, Tackle, Oklahoma

Ryan Flournoy, WR, SE Missouri State


It’s not often you get a generational prospect filled draft like the 2024 class looks to be, and the Jets could take full advantage of it.

Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the league and uses his tight ends as well as anyone. Getting him a versatile target like Brock Bowers would give him an arsenal of weapons to use. Bowers does it all, and I mean all.

Whether its catching, blocking, or taking handoffs, Bowers finds a way to be effective on the field. He routinely breaks big plays and seems to always be open. Adding Bowers would be a move that would give Rodgers a reliable target outside of Garrett Wilson, and sharpen the offensive attack.

Another part of building around Rodgers will be to shore up the offensive line and give him some protection. With players like Mekhi Becton and Duane Brown hitting free agency, they will need to get some talent to fill those holes,

Taking a tackle like Tyler Guyton on Day 2 could be a steal. Guyton is a towering human being, standing 6’7″ with a good overall build. Guyton possesses the athleticism you want from a starting left tackle, and the tenacity you expect from a right tackle. He would come in as an instant plug-and-play starter and improve the left side of the offensive line going forward.

The Jets will have to get some production at the wide receiver position outside of Garrett Wilson for this offense to flourish. The receiver class is deep and they could find a gem in the late rounds.

Drafting a player like Ryan Flournoy would be an ideal move. Flournoy had an excellent Senior Bowl week, routinely separating from defenders with ease. His long frame and smooth hips allow him to get break cleanly and stave off defenders after the catch. He is also deceptively fast, being able to take the top off the coverage and go get deep balls.

A move like this would help Wilson, who has been the focal point of the offense for the better part of two seasons now.

The Jets have a responsibility to make sure this roster has the adequate talent for Aaron Rodgers to use. They can get that and more in this draft class and set themselves up for a deep run in 2024.
