While the NY Jets continue the search for their next quarterback, the 2023 NFL Combine is just days away from starting. Their attention may be on the quarterback market, but it still very much is draft season around the NFL.

A number of the top prospects in the 2023 NFL Draft will travel to Indianapolis this week to take part in one of the draft cycle's most notable traditions. Jets head coach Robert Saleh won't be in attendance, but the organization will still be paying close attention to the event.

The Jets came away with what many believe to be the best draft class in last year's edition of the NFL Draft. From Sauce Gardner to Garrett Wilson to Breece Hall, the Jets added plenty of star power in the 2022 draft.

It was a crucial draft for general manager Joe Douglas after a pair of very underwhelming classes in his first two offseasons with the franchise. The success of the team's 2022 draft class was a big reason why the Jets exceeded expectations throughout most of last season.

The pressure is on again this offseason, however, for Douglas and the Jets to nail another draft class. After all, if the Jets fail to make the postseason in 2023, there's a decent chance that Douglas won't be around for next year's draft.

It's a make-or-break offseason for Douglas and the Jets.

We've explored different mock draft scenarios related to the Jets trading for Aaron Rodgers or Lamar Jackson. In this scenario, the Jets don't trade away any of their draft capital, instead signing Derek Carr in free agency.
