Enjoy your usual cup of coffee this morning while reading the latest news and updates on the New York Jets. Looks like a recent mock draft has them going cornerback in the first round.
It’s the middle of the week as the New York Jets are in full draft mode. They just signed quarterback Josh McCown on a one-year deal which at least for now, means they have at least another option at the most important position on the team. The Jets need to address several other positions on the team as they continue to rebuild for the future.
Below, you’ll find the latest news and updates from top sources on the internet. Recently, a mock draft has the Jets taking a premier cornerback with their No. 6 overall pick. Enjoy everyone and remember, the Jets might not be done just yet in free agency.
In a mock draft written by Brad Weiss for FanSided, he has the Jets taking cornerback Marshon Lattimore out of Ohio State. This would be a solid draft pick for the Jets since he’s exactly what they need to continue ushering in a youth movement. Not only would he live up to high expectations but he would be a defensive cornerstone for years to come.

In an article written by John B for Gang Green Nation, he breaks down the future workout the Jets plan to have with quarterback Mitch Trubisky. Even though they just signed McCown, for a team that is in dire need of a franchise quarterback, it’s best to keep drafting quarterbacks until one is revealed. It won’t be out of the question for the Jets to draft yet another first-round quarterback but they’re simply doing due diligence by holding private workouts with potential draft prospects.
In a radio segment by Mike & Mike featuring Todd McShay for ESPN, on the other side of the coin, he feels the Jets drafting Trubisky would be a mistake. McShay believes that he needs to be in a better situation with a quality veteran presence around him so he can take a year or two off on the sideline learning the game. Trubisky has the talent to succeed in the NFL but will take a few years of coaching, training, and be mentored to take it to the next level.
Finally, in an article written by Randy Lange for the New York Jets, he breaks down McCown by the numbers through his long career in the NFL. At the end of the day, he’s a backup quarterback at best but was brought in to help be the veteran presence that both Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg need. For all we know, he will most likely not even start but be there when either young quarterback needs help both on and off the field. It’s a smart signing since he’s a bridge-gap quarterback to pave the way for hopefully one of these young quarterbacks to lead the Jets for years to come.
