Let's take a look at some of the latest mock drafts.

20. New York Jets: Noah Spence, OLB, Eastern Kentucky

The Jets need a pass rusher, so a drop by Spence could stop here. Don't pay too much attention to Spence's average timing numbers this offseason. His ability shows up on the field. Spence can create pressure from an outside linebacker spot or with his hand down.

20. New York Jets

Leonard Floyd, OLB, Georgia: With explosive edge rushers Miller and Demarcus Ware mitigating Tom Brady's quick passes in the AFC Championship Game, the Broncos provided the rest of the NFL a manual on how to beat the New England Patriots. Adding a speed rusher like Floyd to complement an already stout defensive line could be exactly what the Jets need to end the Patriots' supremacy in the AFC East.

The Jets satisfy their need for an explosive edge rusher.
