Who do the latest mock drafts have the Jets selecting? Let's take a look

Charles Davis (NFL.com)

20. NY Jets

LEONARD FLOYD OLB GEORGIA

Floyd is an excellent edge/speed rusher. He will benefit from the tremendous interior players on the Jets roster.

College Spun

20. New York Jets – OLB Jaylon Smith, Notre Dame

Jaylon Smith would be a top-10 pick if it weren’t for nasty knee injury against Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl. And while he’s expected to make a full recovery, the knee injury still hurts him in terms of draft stock. Teams will do everything they can to make sure he’ll recover, because they already know what they’d be getting when they pop in Smith’s film. The Jets won’t let this one go if he falls this far.

The Big Lead

20. NY Jets – Leonard Floyd, Edge, Georgia. Had Reggie Ragland here last time, as ILB is a major need for the Jets with Davis a free agent and Harris not what he was five years ago. But from a pass-rushing perspective, the Jets don’t have a guy coming off the edge wreaking havoc. Can Floyd be that guy at 6-3, 230?

Walter Football

20. New York Jets: Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State

The Jets will have to find a long-term answer at left tackle soon, given that D'Brickashaw Ferguson will be 33 at some point during the 2016 campaign. In the meantime, an upgrade at right tackle would be welcome, as Breno Giacomini struggled last year.
