Who do the most recent mock drafts have the Jets selecting? Let's look at the latest.
First Round: Reggie Ragland, LB, Alabama
Demario Davis is a free agent, so if he doesn't return, the Jets would love to plug in Reggie Ragland next to David Harris in the middle of their defense.
Second Round: Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State
Third Round: Devontae Booker, RB, UtahFourth Round: Maliek Collins, DT, Nebraska
20. New York Jets: Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota StateOkay, this is where it gets interesting. Wentz is projected to go much higher, and the hype for him is quite real at either No. 2 to the Browns or four to the Cowboys, but I’m less inclined to hand the keys to the franchise just yet. A couple years of sitting will do Wentz well, and yes he’d have that luxury in Dallas, but there are too many good players to pass up for them at the top. Wentz was as advertised at the Senior Bowl – good size, arm strength, athleticism – and all of his positives and negatives were evident in person just as they are in the film room. He has the big arm to play in a vertical passing system, driving the ball down the field, but that will be paired with some questionable decision-making, perhaps expected for a QB with so little experience. For that reason, I’m much more likely to take a chance on his talent at this part of the draft, and the Jets are a great fit for him to sit and develop.
