Round 1, 10th Overall, NY Jets: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson

There were a few options to go here with the 10th overall pick. In the end, we went for a combination of need and talent landing Clemson's Andrew Booth Jr.

Booth is in the conversation to be CB1 in one of the best cornerback classes in recent memory and it wouldn't be a surprise at all to see him go in the top-10. The Clemson standout has the size, athleticism, football IQ, ball skills, and physicality to be a top-tier cornerback at the NFL level.

While perhaps better in man than zone, Booth is a true scheme-versatile defender who even has experience playing in the slot. He'd give the Jets a young cornerback with true No. 1 potential to pair up with Bryce Hall.

There's not enough buzz around Booth right now, but he's pretty much a lock for the top-15. Don't rule him out as a Jets target.

Round 2, 35th Overall, NY Jets: Drake London, WR, USC

ESPN's Mel Kiper recently mocked Drake London to the Jets with the 10th overall pick. They manage to land him 25 spots later at the top of Round 2 in our mock.

London stands at 6-foot-5, 210 pounds making him probably the most physically dominant wide receiver in this class. It's no surprise that London has a background in basketball as it's evident in his play style.

The 20-year-old (he doesn't turn 21 until July) boxes out defenders and is easily the best 50/50 receiver in this draft. He high points the ball with the best of them and has strong hands to dominate in contested-catch situations.

London gives the Jets what they are missing at the wide receiver position. A big-bodied, contested-catch monster who excels in the red zone.
