The New York Jets made some big moves in the NFL free agency. They have acquired both wide receiver Eric Decker as well as offensive lineman Breno Giacomini to help bolster their team. With their latest acquisitions, take a look at some updated first-round scenarios that have been impacted due to free agency. Could the Jets surprise many by actually drafting a tight end before another wide receiver in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft?

Wide receiver Mike Evans is the ideal speedy kind of player the Jets would love to have on their team. A major red zone threat, Evans could compliment Decker well in the Jets spread offensive schemes. He is great at catching overthrown passes with his amazing leaping abilities.

4. Eric Ebron

TE Eric Ebron would be exactly the kind of offensive threat the Jets need to convert field goal attempts into touchdowns. Ebron is a natural-born play maker and if the Jets don't land another TE in free agency, expect the cross-hairs to be on Ebron if he's still available come the Jets draft pick.

There is much speculation that Cooks will probably be drafted before the Jets get their selection, but if he's available, he would be great on the Jets. Cooks would bring speed as a solid No. 1 kind of receiver that would be a deep receiving threat. Plus, Cooks would be great on the Jets' special teams for kickoff and punt returns.

Wide receiver Marqise Lee has been on the Jets draft wishlist for months now and rightfully so. Make no mistake about it, the Jets want to pair Decker with a top quality receiver and Lee is considered among the top three best at the position in the draft. If Lee is available, expect to see him drafted by the Jets.

Emerging as the new candidate to be drafted by the Jets in the upcoming NFL draft, WR Odell Beckham Jr. would have much success on the team. Beckham Jr. is extremely fast (some even say faster than Marqise Lee) which makes you wonder the damage he can cause on the Jets. With the addition of Decker in free agency, Beckham Jr. would ideally be the best option to pair up next to him to give the Jets a more potent offensive attack.
