The New York Jets could address their cornerback depth through free agency with Trumaine Johnson, Malcolm Butler, and Kyle Fuller available. They could also choose to re-sign Morris Claiborne.

Regardless of who the Jets add in free agency, they should look to add a corner in the draft, especially with Buster Skrine entering the final year of his contract.

Isaiah Oliver could be the perfect cornerback to draft after signing a free agent. Oliver may not be ready to be a No. 1 corner as a rookie but he has the potential to be a lockdown NFL corner in the near future.

Oliver has great size (6’1, 190 lb.) and length to go along with good speed. He uses his length to jam receivers at the line and has good recovery speed if he gets beaten on deep routes. He could improve his coverage technique, sometimes allowing too much separation, but has a ton of potential. Oliver also plays the ball well, ripping it out of receivers’ hands.

NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein thinks Oliver has the traits of a top NFL corner:

"Oliver possesses an outstanding combination of size, speed and length and those traits are highly coveted by NFL general managers. There are coverage holes in Oliver’s game and he needs to play with increased toughness, but he’s just scratching the surface of what his talent could allow him to do on the next level with more experience and technique work."

If the Jets can sign Malcolm Butler and draft Isaiah Oliver to go along with Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye, they could have one of the top secondaries in the league in a year or two.
