Way-too-early New York Jets 2025 NFL mock draft roundup

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2025 NFL Draft, we will update our New York Jets Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the New York Jets from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Jets:

Fox Sports - Rob Rang (5/3)

20. Colston Loveland, TE, Michigan

With just six touchdown receptions to his credit, Loveland likely won't generate first-round buzz from those scouting stat sheets, but the 6-foot-5, 245-pounder possesses the soft hands and balance through contact to be a monster in the middle in the NFL.

ESPN - Jordan Reid (5/2)

21. Emeka Egbuka, WR, Ohio State

Mike Williams joined the Jets on a one-year deal, and they drafted Malachi Corley in Round 3, but they could keep pursuing playmakers beyond Garrett Wilson. With high expectations coming into last season, Egbuka battled a nagging ankle injury that led to surgery. But when healthy, he's a crafty and sharp route runner with enough burst to generate separation by overexaggerating body movements. Egbuka was limited to 41 catches and 515 receiving yards last season, but he's aiming to rebound in 2024.

San Diego Union-Tribune - Eddie Brown (5/2)

21. Tetairoa McMillan, WR, Arizona

Mike Williams only signed a one-year deal and it remains to be seen if he can stay on the field. McMillan's 17 contested catches were second among FBS wide receivers to only Rome Odunze last season. He's a big (6-5, 210), productive playmaker with excellent hands.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (4/30)

22. Shedeur Sanders, QB, Colorado

Despite all the hype (including being the betting favorite to go No. 1 in 2025), Sanders wouldn't be a lock first-rounder if the draft were held tomorrow. The talent is clear, but he must show consistency with his decision-making this fall if he is going to be a top-25 pick.

PFF - Max Chadwick (4/29)

21. Emeka Egbuka, WR, Ohio State

Egbuka entered 2023 as the second-best wide receiver draft prospect, behind his teammate Marvin Harrison Jr. While Harrison went wire-to-wire as WR1, Egbuka's injuries combined with his down season forced him to return for his senior year. He's a smooth route runner who is excellent at finding the soft spots in zone coverage. New York's receiver room is set for 2024, but Mike Williams is on only a one-year deal.

The 33rd Team - Marcus Mosher (4/29)

25. Malaki Starks, S, Georgia

The New York Jets used almost all of their 2024 draft capital on offense, which is understandable considering how poor that unit was last season. However, expect that to change in 2025. Malaki Starks is one of the top safeties in the class and has multiple years of production in the SEC.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (4/28)

31. Isaiah Bond, WR, Texas

Finally, a first-round receiver pick for Aaron Rodgers. If Mike Williams works out and returns to Gang Green, this might be superfluous for a franchise squarely in a win-now mindset. But Bond, the Alabama transfer and former Georgia high school track champion, offers elite speed that could be difficult to resist if the Jets are in the market for a big-play target.
