Using their last pick of the draft here the Jets take a massive swing on talent and take Eyabi Okie-Anoma as a long-term project at edge rusher.

For those unfamiliar with Anoma's journey, he was the third-ranked prospect in his recruiting class behind Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields. He'd spend time at Alabama before stepping away from football and returning to play for UT Martin, Michigan, and Charlotte. Anoma would be a low-risk, high-reward investment for Joe Douglas and the Jets here in the seventh round.

In his two seasons of major college football as a starter, Anoma recorded 74 tackles, 9.5 sacks, and a forced fumble. There's no question of whether Anoma has the talent it's whether or not he'll be fully bought into playing for the New York Jets. If the Jets can get the most out of him, this would be a slam dunk pick and a potential replacement for Bryce Huff.
