Many predict the New York Jets to go after some high-profile CBs early on in the 2014 NFL Draft in players like Bradley Roby, Justin Gilbert and Darqueze Dennard. But what about some sleeper picks? TE Troy Niklas could be a sleeper pick for the Jets with his size and ability to make big plays in the red zone. He's also a great blocker for the Jets' style of ground-and-pound offense.
Take a look at five sleepers who fit perfectly for the Jets.
CB Aaron Colvin would thrive in the Jets' secondary with his excellence in man-to-man coverage and ability to shut down even the best wide receivers coming his way.
LB Dee Ford is the perfect kind of sleeper pick who would benefit the Jets tremendously. With his speed and ability to rush the quarterback, Ford is great at blitzing and accumulating plenty of sacks.
DE Jackson Jeffcoat would be an incredible sleeper pick since he would learn tremendously under the Jets' front defensive line dubbed the "Sons of Anarchy". Jeffcoat is a tackling machine and could be a future superstar on defense.
WR Davante Adams would be a nice late-round sleeper pick since the Jets need to bolster their wide receiving corps tremendously. Possessing incredible speed and vertical jumping ability, he could be a solid deep threat for the Jets' offense, especially when throwing into the red zone.
CB Isaiah Lewis would be one of the ultimate sleepers since the Jets need to add some quality depth to their defensive secondary. Lewis can stop the run and provide good coverage in nickel formations. He might not be the biggest or fastest defensive back, but he has a keen instinct on how to create havoc on defense.
