Enjoy your morning cup of coffee with the latest news and updates on the New York Jets. A new mock draft has them taking a popular cornerback with the No. 6 overall pick.
The weekend is over and well, the start of a new week will more than likely require a nice hot cup of coffee to get the day started right. The New York Jets are getting closer and closer to the 2017 NFL Draft as it will be quite interesting to see what route they take once they’re on the clock.
Below you will find the latest news and updates from top sources on the internet about Gang Green. Make no mistake about it, the Jets are going to have a plethora of decisions to make in just a few short weeks come draft time, especially if they plan to perhaps trade up or down with their No. 6 overall pick.
In an article written by Rich Cimini of ESPN, he wrote a mini mock draft from No. 1 all the way to when they Jets are on the clock at No. 6. He has them taking cornerback Marshon Lattimore out of Ohio State which in the grand scheme of things, makes a ton of sense. The Jets need help bad in their defensive secondary and since they’re ushering quite the youth movement, would be smart to draft Lattimore if he’s still available at No. 6. He’s an instant starter and well, despite his past hamstring injuries, would be a solid draft pick that could be a defensive cornerstone for years to come.

In another article written by Rich Cimini of ESPN, he breaks down how the Jets could use defensive end Sheldon Richardson as trade bait in order to accumulate even more draft picks. Since the Jets need to draft as many top players possible, it would be smart to ship him out to acquire more picks and bid farewell to one of their biggest locker room distractions. It would be shocking to see Richardson back on the Jets next season as he’ll more than likely be wearing another uniform this upcoming season.
In an article written by Ethan Greenberg of the New York Jets, he breaks down that the Jets could find a new starting tight end in this year’s draft. It’s no secret they need a premier tight end bad, especially with new offensive coordinator John Morton in town that will want to incorporate more production from the position. Luckily, the Jets have a pretty solid group of tight ends to select from in this year’s class that even if they used one of their two third-round picks on one, they’ll find someone ready to step right in and take care of business.
Finally, in an article written by Michael David Smith for NBC Sports, he gives details on the Jets working out quarterback Patrick Mahomes out of Texas Tech. The Jets will more than likely end up drafting yet another option into the mix until they find their franchise quarterback. Perhaps Mahomes could be a good pick but is another developmental player that will need at least two to three years of coaching and training before being ready to compete for a starting position.
