Jets may attempt to upgrade while running backwards


As part of The Post’s preview of the 2022 NFL Draft, we examine what the Jets could do at each position. Today: running backs Next: wide receivers.

Jets general manager Joe Douglas drafted a fourth-round running back in each of his first two drafts. Will he make it three? It appears Douglas faced Michael Carter in the fourth round last year. Carter rushed for 639 yards in 14 games and showed promise that he could be a lead back.

The Jets’ system is based on the 49ers’ offense, which seems to have a new running back every year, so expect Douglas to keep trying to expand the positional group. They re-signed veteran Tevin Coleman but Douglas could certainly draft another defender, especially on Day 3.

La’Mical Perine, Douglas’ fourth-round pick of 2020, didn’t sit well with the new coaching staff last year and could be in danger of not making the team. The Jets also have Ty Johnson and Austin Walter back from last year, but neither is guaranteed a job.

Douglas could be looking at players like Georgia’s Zamir White or Michigan’s Hassan Haskins in the fourth round, or a player like Notre Dame’s Kyren Williams or Cincinnati’s Jerome Ford in the fifth round. Jets may attempt to upgrade while running backwards
