The Jets have only six picks in the upcoming NFL Draft, and with so many holes on their roster, they'll need to use them wisely. It's still early, but here's a look at how those six picks could go:

First Round (No. 3 overall): DT Quinnen Williams, Alabama

With the exception of a couple of vague tweets heard 'round the NFL, Le'Veon Bell was one of the quietest free agents in the league on Monday. If the Jets were looking to make some noise by signing the NFL's No. 1 free agent, it looks like they're going to have to wait.

For the moment, as multiple NFL sources told SNY, the Jets are believed to be the favorite to land the 27-year-old running back. But the truth is, only Bell knows for sure for whom he will toll. He said on Twitter he had more than two teams to choose from. The Jets, 49ers, Eagles, Raiders, Dolphins and Bears had all been mentioned as possible destinations.

Bowles talks about looking back 00:01:35
Todd Bowles doesn't have the time to dwell on the past, Sam Darnold speaks on consistency and Trumaine Johnson talks about missing practice

It is almost certain that the Jets' season finale against the Patriots on Sunday will be Todd Bowles last game as head coach for New York. But he can't focus on that at the moment. 

Instead, he's leaving the "what-ifs" aside to hopefully finish another rough season on a high note. 

"I don't have time for the 'what-ifs' right now," Bowles said after practice on Wednesday. "The games come too quickly every week. We don't have enough time for me to stand up here and tell everything I've learned this year. You learn a long list of things as a coach every year, every game."

Jets CB Trumaine Johnson was absent from practice on Wednesday, and it wasn't due to injury. 

Instead, head coach Todd Bowles told reporters Johnson was out due to an "in-house matter that we're dealing with." Bowles wouldn't delve into that matter, but when asked if he would be on the field for the Jets' season finale against the Patriots on Sunday, he replied "we'll see."

This doesn't seem like a good situation in the slightest of the 28-year-old cornerback the Jets signed to a five-year, $72.5 million deal this past offseason. If he misses this game, it would be his sixth game not suiting up this season after missing five straight weeks (Week 5-9) with a quad injury.

The Jets ruled cornerback Trumaine Johnson, tight end Neal Sterling and wide receiver Charone Peake out for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos.

New York also listed safety Marcus Maye, who missed the first three games of the season but debuted last Sunday vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars, as questionable with an ankle/foot injury.

Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa and cornerback Darryl Roberts, who respectively suffered injuries to their hip and hamstring Thursday, practiced in full on Friday.

Jets coach Todd Bowles did not address the players' availability for Sunday's game against the Broncos, but said they will each receive treatment and will be evaluated by the training staff tomorrow and Saturday.

The Jets had a boatload of cap space as well as the No. 3 overall draft pick to work with this offseason. And LB Darron Lee thinks the moves made using those resources have looked good thus far.

The most notable of the acquisitions made by GM Mike Maccagnan include CB Trumaine Johnson, LB Avery Williamson, and first-round draft pick QB Sam Darnold. These three players are the crucial chess pieces Lee thinks will help them now and in the future.

"This is a game of chess, not checkers," Lee told Jets.com's Eric Allen. "Adding those important pieces like Tru, Avery, and Sam is huge. It has us going in the right direction in my opinion, but implementing those guys in our brotherhood and our standard in what we have here is huge. Seeing how they're abiding by it also and they're jelling in smoothly with it -- it makes you excited. It can't help but make you excited because they're buying in."
