Round 2, 40th Overall, NY Jets: Drake London, WR, USC

Don't rule out the Jets drafting a wide receiver early, even after adding Corey Davis and Elijah Moore last offseason. In fact, they could even address the position earlier than this.

Fortunately, we were able to land a perfect prospect for the Jets' offense in Drake London at pick No. 40. London is a massive target standing at 6-foot-5, 210 pounds. The Jets could really use a contested-catch specialist like him.

A former USC basketball player, London has absurd body control and a ridiculous catch radius. While not the fastest receiver out there, he's a good athlete with consistent hands.

London adds a missing element to the Jets' offense and gives them a starting trio of Davis, Moore, and London heading into the 2022 season.

Round 3, 68th Overall, NY Jets: Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan

The Jets might very well address the offensive line further in free agency and it's hard to predict how early to target the position group in the draft without knowing the futures of players like George Fant, Morgan Moses, and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif.

But either way, none of those players are long-term options. That's why we swung for the fences with the Austrian-born Bernhard Raimann here at the top of Round 3.

Raimann stands at 6-foot-7, 305 pounds having only played offensive tackle for two years after originally playing, believe it or not, wide receiver and tight end.

He has the athletic profile to become the next Jordan Mailata-type player, although much like Mailata, he will likely need time to develop. Raimann makes sense if the Jets roll with either Fant or Moses at right tackle for another year.
