Round 2, 38th Overall, NY Jets: Drake London, WR, USC

I don't think Drake London will be available at this spot come April. But right now, London's draft stock is all over the place and he just happened to fall right into the Jets' lap with the 38th overall pick. I wasn't passing.

London is a physically-imposing wide receiver who stands at a massive 6-foot-5, 210 pounds. His background in basketball is evident in the way that he boxes out defenders and high points the ball.

He's a true contested-catch nightmare for opposing defenses with an absurd catch radius and the ability to line up either outside or as a big slot.

My only concerns with London come with his route-running and separation skills, but at this spot, I have no issue taking him. He's been receiving legitimate top-10 buzz from some outlets.

Round 3, 69th Overall, NY Jets: Isaiah Likely, TE, Coastal Carolina

Isaiah Likely has flown a little under the radar when it comes to tight ends the Jets could target. He's not Trey McBride or Jeremy Ruckert, but he is still a damn good tight end prospect who makes plenty of sense for Gang Green.

Likely was arguably the focal point of Coastal Carolina's offense. The senior tight end was an offensive weapon that lined up everywhere from in-line tight end to slot receiver to out wide to even as an H-back.

Any NFL team that drafts him would be wise to utilize his versatility. He has the speed/size combination to be a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses and he more than holds his own as a blocker.

Likely could contribute early in his career and become the long-term tight end the Jets have been missing for over a decade.
