2. Robert Hunt, G

Guard Robert Hunt has been with the Miami Dolphins since being selected in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Hunt is a terrific athlete who owns a big frame (6-foot-6, 335 pounds).

The Louisiana product has steadily improved over his four-year career. Hunt has nimble feet and awareness to be productive in both phases on offense. The 27-year-old uses his superb power to move defenders in the run game.

Additionally, Hunt has played in 16-plus games in three of his four seasons. He also finished the 2023 season as the sixth-ranked guard according to PFF.

The potential addition of Hunt would bolster the offensive line while also weakening a division rival in the Dolphins.

3. Mike Onwenu, G

Despite being a sixth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Mike Onwenu has developed into a quality offensive line. First and foremost, Onwenu has been durable since entering the league, playing in 15-plus games in four straight years.

The Michigan product is an impactful run-blocker while never giving up more than three sacks in a season. The 26-year-old also has tremendous positional flexibility, seeing action at both tackle and guard.

It's a major plus having someone along the offensive line who can line up in multiple spots if needed. The Jets need to revamp the offensive line going into 2024 and Onwenu could be an outstanding addition.

To echo the same sentiment, signing Onwenu strengthens the Jets and takes a shot at the Patriots.
