2. Do the NY Jets go with Drake London, Garrett Wilson, or another wide receiver?

Although some mock drafts have the Jets going in a different direction at pick No. 10, the prevailing opinion is to take a top wide receiver. Now the only question for Douglas and company is, which one?

There is stud USC prospect Drake London, who provides physicality and great jump-ball ability, or Ohio State standout Garrett Wilson, who is eerily similar to current Jets starter, Elijah Moore.

While these are the two names that most appear at pick No. 10, there is also the likes of Alabama’s Jameson Williams, and it presents a unique, potentially franchise-altering decision for this front office.

Whichever way the team decides to go, adding more talent to surround second-year QB Zach Wilson is vital, so expect to see the Jets take a wide receiver very early in this draft.


3. Do the NY Jets tempt either Seattle or Tennessee with their No. 10 overall pick?

Ever since Joe Douglas almost pulled off a blockbuster trade for Tyreek Hill, the rumor mill has been in overdrive for the next wide receiver trade, most of it regarding the Jets.

Two names that have appeared most of all are Seattle’s D.K Metcalf and Tennessee’s A.J Brown, and with the Jets having two picks in Round 1, they have been linked as much as anyone.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on where you stand), Seattle could be looking for multiple first-round picks, and while Douglas won’t pay that, we wonder if he will consider parting with pick No. 10.

A new wide receiver to pair with Moore and Corey Davis is essential, and while the draft can provide a young star to grow with Zach Wilson, this might be an opportunity that Douglas takes advantage of.
