The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Jets:
EDSFootball - Hanson (3/5)
Even though Sam Darnold won't turn 24 until June and wasn't put in a position to succeed, he has struggled with durability and hasn't yet shown that he's the long-term answer. Wilson has enjoyed a pre-draft rise similar to that of Joe Burrow last year. Although not the biggest quarterback in this draft class, Wilson uses his athleticism to make and extend plays and is especially accurate throwing downfield.
23. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota
ESPN - McShay (3/4)
Rich Cimini on his fit with the Jets: If it is the Jets taking Wilson, that would mean the end for Darnold, who would be traded -- and perhaps before the Jets are even on the clock. I think New York would look to acquire a "bridge" quarterback to ease the transition for Wilson, but it also needs to find some playmakers to put around him.
23. Azeez Ojulari, EDGE, Georgia
Rich Cimini on his fit with the Jets: The Jets haven't had an explosive edge rusher in 15 years. The question with Ojulari is scheme fit, and at 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, he could be a tweener for the Jets' new 4-3 front.
CBS Sports - Trapasso (3/3)
23. Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue
It's time to move on.
Wilson isn't Lawrence -- no one in this class is -- but there's an awful lot to like about him. He's deadly accurate. He's elusive in the pocket. He's mobile. He has a cannon for a right arm. He's tailor-made for coordinator Mike LaFleur's offense. There are some rumblings of personality red flags -- that's a concern. But Wilson will have opportunities over the next few months to convince Douglas they're overblown. If he can, he's the pick. -- Connor Hughes
Touchdown Wire - Farrar (2/26)
23. Elijah Moore, WR, Mississippi
There are few players in this class more inclined to meet that last qualification than Ole Miss's Elijah Moore.
Eli has a point, to a point, about his near-namesake. Last season, Moore caught a preposterous 86 catches for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns in just eight games. Whether from the slot or outside, he consistently proved to be one of the most elusive and toughest receivers to bring down in the country, as his 5.9 yards after catch per reception and 18 forced missed tackles proved. If Moore were 6-0 and 200 pounds putting up those numbers, that would be one thing -- but at 5-foot-11 and 184 pounds, he just packs a wallop you don't often see from receivers his size, and he does so without sacrificing a bit of his game-breaking ability.
