NY Jets Pick 2: Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State
The Jets are going to address the tight end position in a big way this offseason, and although this may not be the best value pick, it fills a major need. Colorado State's Trey McBride would be a massive addition to the Jets offense.
One of the most productive tight ends in college football, McBride hauled in 90 catches for 1,121 yards in his senior season establishing himself as one of the best tight ends in the country.
He's a true well-rounded tight end prospect with the size, athleticism, and blocking traits to be a plug-and-play starter at a position that rookies usually don't excel at immediately.
This was a pick for need as much as it was capitalizing on a player who is garnering some Round 1 buzz. Trey McBride is the real deal.
NY Jets Pick 3: Zion Johnson, OG, Boston College
Zion Johnson has undoubtedly been one of the standouts from this week of Senior Bowl practices receiving praise for his on-field ability, his versatility, and his worth ethic. Johnson has been the first one on the field and the last one off — and that's not an exaggeration.
At 6-foot-3, 316 pounds, Johnson is an athletically-gifted guard prospect who has plug-and-play potential at the next level. While he has experience playing left tackle, he's probably better suited as a guard in the NFL.
The Jets drafted their left guard of the future in Alijah Vera-Tucker in last year's draft. They could search for their long-term right guard in the 2022 NFL Draft, and that player might just be Zion Johnson.
He's someone the Jets could very well target early on Day 2 of the draft.
