2016 NFL Draft: Mayock's Rankings a Sign Carson Wentz Won't Be an Option for the Jets?

NFL Network's Mike Mayock has come out with his first set of rankings by position for the 2016 NFL Draft. Here are some of the key areas of need for the Jets.

Quarterback

1. Carson Wentz, North Dakota State

2. Jared Goff, California

3. Paxton Lynch, Memphis

4. Connor Cook, Michigan State

5. Dak Prescott, Mississippi State

Tackle

1. Laremy Tunsil, Ole Miss

2. Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame

3. Jack Conklin, Michigan State

4. Taylor Decker, Ohio State

5. Willie Beavers, Western Michigan

Edge Rusher

1. Joey Bosa, Ohio State

2. Noah Spence, Eastern Kentucky

3. Shaq Lawson, Clemson

4. Leonard Floyd, Georgia

5. Kevin Dodd, Clemson

I have been saying for a few weeks that I didn't think Carson Wentz was going to be a realistic option for the Jets at 20. If Mayock's rankings are any indication, that might be accurate. The Jets are probably going to have to look elsewhere to find a quarterback.
