Jets Roster Reset: Defense and Special Teams

The Jets have done a pretty good job of filling most of their holes and putting themselves in a situation where they can use the draft to take a best player available approach with most of their picks. This should enable them to end up with a mixture of immediate contributors and developmental prospects.
