NFL Mocks: Mock Draft Update: The New York Jets Select……


Time for another mock draft evaluation. This one is from our very network.

Our friends at NFL Mocks have done their first post-combine mock draft.  It included some trades this time, but not a trade for the Jets, keeping them at number 18.  So, who do they have for the Jets?

MARQISE LEE, WR, USC

A solid combine merely affirmed that Marqise Lee is a dynamic weapon at wide receiver. His speed-agility combination, along with good route running skills make him a big play threat. The New York Jets badly need such weapons. Adding Lee could give Geno Smith that go-to guy he didn’t have last year.

Take a look at their entire draft by clicking here.

He measured in at the combine at 6’0″, 192 pounds.  His 40 yard dash was a quick 4.52 seconds, and he showed some explosion with a top broad jump performance of 127 inches.

Marqise suffered through injury problems last season, which will always be a risk.  But, nobody will be upset if this is the choice for the Jets.  The Jets need a playmaker, and Marqise Lee is a playmaker.

    I would be disappointed if we took Lee. I think he’s going to be a bust. We need playmakers but if no ones there then I wouldn’t be mad if we took Calvin Pryor or anyone that falls like Mosley Barr or even a corner like dennard

    • Alan Schechter

      Understood….you think they should trade up for a playmaker?

    • Irvin Findlay

      In the first round? NO! We need to draft an offensive weapon in the first round. The first two rounds in my honest opinion. There’s bound to be a WR of the Jets’ interest at 18. I’d prefer them to go after Ebron in the 1st trade up in the 2nd round to acquire a WR hopefully Matthews.

      • Paul Newbold

        No need to trade up in the second to get a WR, this class has plenty, plus FA. I see them either going WR in the first, TE in the second or visa versa. Both positions need to be addressed. I’m hoping Jeremiah Attaochu’s not participating in the combine will drop him into the third, and use the second third rounder to either grab an OL or S. The nice thing about this year’s draft is there is a ton of talent and the Jets have a surplus of picks. Idzik is in a great position going into the draft, and FA. It should be fun to watch.

          Agreed man I’m only hoping for the best for the Jets I’m curious to see what happens

    • Paul Newbold

      Idzik has said he takes “the best player available” approach to the draft. Many mockers take the ” fill a need” approach. With a surplus of picks, and some moderate cap space, the Jets have a ton of options open to them. We might all be surprised come draft weekend! Its fun to guess in the mean time though!

        Sure is fun to guess
