Here is a roundup of recent mock drafts from across the internet.

20. Reggie Ragland, ILB, Alabama

Ragland would put up monster numbers playing behind the Jets' talented defensive line.

20. New York Jets: Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State

Last year, Mike Maccagnan went with the best player available in Leonard Williams. If Elliott gets to the Jets' pick, the former Buckeye will easily be the best player available. Chris Ivory is entering free agency and it sounds like he may not be back with the team. Elliott could carry New York's offense for many years to come.

Elliott averaged 6.3 yards per carry in 2015 for 1,821 yards with 23 touchdowns. He had 27 receptions for 206 yards as well. In all but one game in 2015, Elliott exceeded 100 yards. The junior was tremendous with his burst, vision, balance and ability to rip off yards in chunks. He would hit the hole quickly and explode to the second level. In the passing game, Elliott showed nice blocking and receiving skills. Sources say he's a first-rounder.

The 6-foot, 225-pounder was the workhorse who carried the Buckeyes to the National Championship in 2014. He destroyed Wisconsin (20-220-2), Alabama (20-230-2) and Oregon (36-246-4) in the final three games to lead Ohio State. Elliott averaged 6.9 yards per carry on the year for 1,878 yards with 18 touchdowns. He had 28 receptions for 220 yards, too. Elliott showed speed, cutting ability and a knack to pick up yards after contact.
