The first week of free agency has passed and the NY Jets have made quite a few additions to their roster. They’ve added depth in the form of numerous role players and have made a couple of very notable pickups as well.
The roster now looks completely different than it did a week ago. As a result, we have a much better idea of how the 2021 NFL Draft might shake out.
General manager Joe Douglas did a nice job adding high-end free agents at both wide receiver and pass-rusher signing the likes of Corey Davis and Carl Lawson to three-year deals.
The roster still has its fair share of weakness, but luckily for the Jets, they’ll have plenty of picks in this year’s draft to fill those holes.
With five picks in the first 90 selections, Douglas and the Jets have the draft capital to do some serious damage this April. And they’ll need to as well.
We’re still a little over a month away from the start of the draft, meaning that things can still change. But at the moment, the Jets have gaping holes at cornerback and along the offensive line, and could use upgrades at a host of other positions.
Not to mention the everlasting question surrounding the quarterback position.
As per usual, we used The Draft Network’s Mock Machine to run through one possible scenario in our latest seven-round 2021 NFL mock draft.
With that, let’s take a look at our first post-free agency (at least the first week of free agency) mock draft.
