The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Jets:
EDSFootball - Hanson (1/15)
If the team maintains this draft slot, they have the opportunity to reset at the most important position in sports. In any other draft, either Fields or BYU's Zach Wilson would be worthy of the No. 1 overall pick and it's unclear at this point which quarterback Joe Douglas would prefer.
While things didn't go as well against Alabama in the national championship game, Fields helped his stock in the College Football Playoffs. Not only did he show incredible toughness playing through injury after James Skalski was ejected for targeting, he lit up a talented Clemson defense for 22-of-28 for 385 yards and six touchdowns in the semifinal game. With prototypical size (6-3, 225), elite athleticism and the arm strength to make all of the throws, the dual-threat quarterback has thrown 63 touchdowns to only nine interceptions and added 15 rushing touchdowns in his two seasons as Ohio State's starter.
23. Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State
San Diego Union Tribune (1/13)
23. Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina
CBS Sports - Trapasso (1/13)
23. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota
The Athletic - Brugler (1/12)
23. Azeez Ojulari, EDGE, Georgia
27. Derion Kendrick, CB, Clemson
ESPN - McShay (1/7)
Since we're not mocking trades this far out, and with Lawrence off the board, I think the Jets will stick with Sam Darnold as their guy under center and build around him. That begins with a game-changing offensive tackle. New York allowed 43 sacks this season, and its rushing attack tied for sixth worst in yards per carry (4.1). Sewell, a 2020 opt-out, would do wonders for both weak spots. And after taking Mekhi Becton in Round 1 in April, the Jets would have a pair of elite tackles bookending the line.
25. Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State
USA Today - MMS (1/5)
27. Alijah Vera-Tucker, IOL, USC
Athlon Sports - Fisher (1/5)
