One 2024 Draft Target For Every AFC East Team

For years, since before I was even born, Tom Brady ruled the AFC East with an iron fist. If anyone dared try to compete, he would annihilate them and send them away. Brady even managed to send Saban away from the Dolphins and to Alabama.


But with Brady gone, every team is looking to make the changes needed to take over the throne. Every team in the division has a glaring weakness, and there is one man each team should target to try and address those deficits.

New England Patriots: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

The Heisman winner deserves the third overall pick, and he is exactly who the Patriots need. The Patriots haven't needed creativity at quarterback since it became popular, but with no Brady and Mac Jones seeming to be a bust, it is time for a drastic change.


Especially with a new era in Foxborough in head coach Jerod Mayo, it would make sense that he would want to get his quarterback. The revolving door of Zappe and Jones is not good enough to compete, and most of the Patriots roster is made to win now. Daniels is incredibly athletic and talented and is what New England needs.


New York Jets: JC Latham, OT, Alabama

The Jets' season ended about twelve seconds into it when Aaron Rodgers tore his meniscus and was done for the season. Would it have happened if the Jets had a better offensive tackle? If you want to prevent this in the future, Latham is the way to go.


Alt and Fashanu will both be off the board by pick ten, and Fuaga needs to meet the standard for Jets offensive line picks. The Jets like big tackles, and Latham is 6'6. A strong pass protector with pro-style offense experience makes sense, and I believe the Jets address the need with Latham.


Miami Dolphins: Troy Fautanu, OT/OG, Washington

Fautanu is the only player with dual positions in his title, which is for good reason. The Dolphins own a pick for the first time since 2021, and despite having solid offensive tackle play, Fautanu should be the pick. At 6'4, he is incredibly versatile and can move inside reasonably quickly. The Dolphins offense is already extremely high-powered, With Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle, and De'Von Achane leaving defenses in the dust.



However, this offense relies on many deep balls and boundary play. If the Dolphins adjust the interior line, it would make the interior stronger for pass protection, making Tua Tagovailoa have to roll out less, and it would open up an inside run game that could keep the defense honest and open up deep plays.


Buffalo Bills: T'Vondre Sweat, DT, Texas

The Bills have struggled to address some of their needs early on but hit later in the draft or free agency. Sweat is a must-grab if he is available this late for the Bills, as he would be a massive cog in preventing the run game.


We saw how poor the Bills' run defense was following Matt Milano and other linebackers getting hurt and needing help to step up. If the Bills drafted Sweat, it would add another formidable foe for opposing offenses to plan around. Sweat's size and strength are likely the best in this draft, and this bare minimum makes him a must for the Bills if he is still on the board at 28.
