Finally, this could be an ideal situation for the Jets to focus on bringing in another weapon for Sam Darnold. One name that has been rising up draft boards over the last couple of weeks is USC wide receiver Michael Pittman.

Last season with the Trojan, Pittman showed why he is worth of being a mid second-round pick. He caught 101 passes for 1,275 yards and 11 touchdowns on the year. New York could use a weapon like him, especially after losing Robby Anderson to the Carolina Panthers in free agency.

Standing in at 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, Pittman would give the Jets much-needed size at receiver. Breshad Perriman was signed to help replace Anderson, but he is mainly a speedster. Pittman and Perriman would be a solid one-two punch for the Jets.

Don’t be surprised if the Jets take a long look at Pittman. He fits the mold of what they need and has big-time potential at the NFL level.

  1. Tyler Badasz has slipped considerably down as low as late 3 to mid 4! So He is not an option at 48! If Michigan’s Cesar Ruiz was there at 48 he would be ideal. Others to consider before Badasz might me Temle’s Matt Hennessy or Cushenberry from LSU!
