NBA playoffs 2024 Conference finals news schedule scores and highlights

The New York Jets have seven picks in the 2024 NFL draft, owning the No. 10 pick in the first round. They sent their second-round pick to the Green Bay Packers in a trade to acquire Aaron Rodgers last offseason, and they don't have a fifth-rounder, either.

The Jets do have the final two picks in the draft, meaning they will be selecting Mr. Irrelevant if they keep the pick.

The Jets, who finished with a 7-10 record last season, have been busy bringing in veterans to help upgrade their roster -- with defensive end Haason Reddick being the most-recent acquisition.

The draft will take place at Campus Martius Park and Hart Plaza in Detroit from April 25 through April 27. Round 1 starts at 8 p.m. ET, while Rounds 2 and 3 will be April 26, starting at 7 p.m. ET. Rounds 4 through 7 begin at noon ET on April 27. The draft will broadcast on ESPN, ABC, ESPN+ and the ESPN App. There are 257 total picks in the draft.

Here's the full list of the Jets' draft picks by round, along with a look at their top roster needs headed into the 2024 season.

Jets' 2024 draft picks Round 1: No. 10 overall  Round 3: No. 72 Round 4: No. 111  Round 4: No. 134 (from Baltimore)* Round 6: No. 185 Round 7: No. 256*  Round 7: No. 257*

Top three needs: OT, WR, S. The Jets addressed their short-term tackle needs by acquiring Tyron Smith and Morgan Moses, but both are 33 and will be free agents in 2025. Smith also has a history of injuries. So it behooves the Jets to add a tackle, someone who can come in as a backup and eventually take over as a starter.

It's a similar situation at wide receiver. Newly-signed Mike Williams provides immediate help on a one-year contract but is coming off an ACL injury and will turn 30 during this coming season. The Jets have some young receivers in the pipeline but could use some size to complement Garrett Wilson. Chuck Clark, who missed last season (ACL), is the stop-gap starter at strong safety, but they'd like to supplement the position with a young, rangy player who can grow into a full-time role. -- Rich Cimini
