ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper has the Jets selection offensive talent early in his latest mock draft:
I think we all know how much I personally like Cooks, so I agree with this selection 100%. He brings a dynamic angle to this football team. Now that we have a reliable target in Eric Decker, we need to give him some room to work. Adding a burner like Cooks, who also has excellent hands will only help the Jets, and make it near impossible for defences to load up on stopping one Jets target. Now we have CJ, if this offence can add a talent like Brandin Cooks, we are going to put some serious points on the board.
So I was happy enough with this selection, then Kiper followed it up with a very good second round selection
49. New York Jets | *Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington
The Jets get the wide receiver they need in Round 1, and double down with pass-catchers in Round 2 in adding ASJ. He's something of an unrealized talent (at least for me) and could allow the Jets to utilize some new looks. He's a big target.
We upgrade again. I have nothing against Cumberland, but I think we need to add a premier pass catching threat from the tight end position. ASJ is a big red-zone threat. He is still a little raw in some areas, but if you add these two guys to this offence, watch out!
