The Jets, depending on Sunday’s outcomes, could pick anywhere between first and fifth in April's NFL Draft. Here are three players of interest who might be available:

NICK BOSA, DE, OHIO STATE

The Jets need an edge rusher. If he’s available, it’s a no-brainer. He is 6-4, 263 pounds, and has size and athleticism — similar to his brother, Chargers’ lineman Joey Bosa — to be a game-changer for any defense. But Bosa is expected to go first overall. The Jets need a lot of help to get the No. 1 pick.  

JOSH ALLEN, LB, KENTUCKY

He’s 6-5, 250 pounds and has the versatility to play both inside or outside linebacker spots. Allen wreaked havoc for the Wildcats as a run-stopper and pass rusher, and ranked high in the nation with 14 sacks, 18.5 tackles for a loss and five forced fumbles.

CLELIN FERRELL, DE, CLEMSON

He can play outside linebacker or end depending on the defensive scheme, and he would fill a need for the Jets with his ability to get to the quarterback. The 6-5, 260-pound Ferrell recorded 10.5 sacks and 17.5 tackles for loss.
