Here’s a full 2-round mock draft featuring a blockbuster Jamal Adams trade. Here are the full results for the NY Jets in this crazy simulation.
The folks over at NFL Mocks, a FanSided sister network, just released a two-round mock draft that includes trades.
We decided to pull the full results for the NY Jets including a blockbuster Jamal Adams trade to add an additional first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
We’ll break down what selections Sayre Bedinger of NFL Mocks made for the NY Jets and then we’ll grade how he did with his picks.
EDGE, New York Jets
“K’Lavon Chaisson was the heart of the LSU defense this past year, given the prestigious number 18 as the player who most exemplifies the championship standard through leadership and play on the field.
Despite being just a redshirt sophomore who struggled with injuries his first couple of years, Chaisson was a permanent team captain for LSU this past season.
This guy is a leader, and he’s one of the most explosive edge players in the 2020 class. As a matter of fact, outside of Chase Young, he might be unrivaled in that regard. He’s only scratched the surface of how good he can become at the next level.”
The NY Jets have seemed unwilling over the last few years to invest high draft capital on the edge ever since they blew it on Vernon Gholston over a decade ago.
There’s no questioning the need but after Chase Young, there’s a clear drop off in talent at edge. The team would be best served to fill this need during the free agency period with over $60 million in projected cap space.
Players still available when this pick was made:
- Jerry Jeudy, Alabama, wide receiver
- CeeDee Lamb, Oklahoma, wide receiver
- Tristan Wirfs, Iowa, offensive tackle
If the NY Jets decide to select a defensive player in the first round, the fans will revolt. The only way they don’t is if somehow Chase Young (edge, Ohio State) or Jeff Okudah (cornerback, Ohio State) is still on the board and spoiler alert they won’t be. In this mock draft simulation, both players were taken in the top-five.
