With issues still to address at quarterback, offensive line, linebacker and elsewhere, the Jets are not done in free agency. But the simple fact is that for all intents other than finding some middle ground in the Ryan Fitzpatrick saga, this team's free agency is pretty much done.
Other than a few more signings and some early-round picks from the 2016 NFL Draft, the Jets can't count on undrafted free agents or maybe even some June free agent additions to provide much more than the roster already has.
As we prepare for the draft, let's go spot-by-spot on the Jets' depth chart as it now stands to look at the strengths and weaknesses of the current roster.

Next up: Tight End and Wide Receiver...
1) Jace Amaro
2) Kellen Davis
3) Zach Sudfeld
4) Wes Saxton
5) Brandon Bostick
6) Adrien Robinson
Positional status: Very upgradable
Recommended acquisition method: Free agency
Analysis: I am fascinated by this year's group because we never saw offesnsive coordinator Chan Gailey use Jace Amaro in the 2015 regular season. This draft class has one or two promising players in Hunter Henry and Nick Vannett, but will Gailey pass on utilizing his tight ends again in 2016? Amaro must demonstrate solid blocking, fluid movement and better hands when catching the ball. Otherwise, Kellen Davis will continue on as a serviceable blocker. Expect the last four players to fight for the final spot should the Jets bypass drafting a player.
1) Brandon Marshall
2) Eric Decker
3) Quincy Enunwa
4) Devin Smith
5) Kenbrell Thompkins
6) Titus Davis
7) Chandler Worthy
8) Joe Anderson
Positional status: Set for 2016 season
Recommended acquisition method: Draft
Analysis: The top of this depth chart is one of the best in the league, but it will be interesting to see how the third through fifth spots play out.
Smith was a second-round draft choice by this regime so it's fair to think he'll get the benefit of the doubt despite durability concerns. Enunwa did a great job as a blocking receiver but had few flashes as a pass catcher in 2015. I love what I saw from Thompkins at the end of the season and it would be great for the Jets to goose this group with a SPARQ freak like Devon Cajuste, Keyarris Garrett or (on the opposite side of the size spectrum) Jakeem Grant on Day 3. I could also easily be talked into picking Leonte Carroo in the third round.
