This is it. We’ve reached the home stretch. The NY Jets and the rest of the NFL are less than five days away from the start of what could prove to be a monumental 2021 NFL Draft.
Franchise directions will be determined. Dreams will be accomplished. And we’re sure to see our fair share of typical draft drama before the weekend is over.
For frequent readers of these mocks, you will know that we’ve been running this series essentially weekly for nearly seven months now. When you have a team as bad as the Jets were last year, it only makes sense.
There’s a good chance that this is the last team-specific mock that we release prior to Thursday’s draft. So let’s make this one count.
For the most part, we’ve opted against trades in our mock scenarios. But that won’t be the case today. The Jets’ will have a difficult decision to make at pick 23, and their best option might just be to trade up a few slots and ensure they snag their guy.
That’s exactly what we did here.
But who did they trade up for? What did they give up? Were there any other surprises in the draft? All of those questions will be answered shortly. Even quicker if you’re one of the readers who skip the intro slide every time.
We know you’re out there. We see you. Two more paragraphs — you could do it.
As usual, we used The Draft Network’s Mock Machine to run through one possible scenario that could unfold in this year’s draft. Just a little spoiler alert, this might be my own personal favorite mock draft that we’ve done.
With that, let’s take a look at the results from what will likely be our final seven-round mock draft of the 2021 draft season.
