Some recent mock drafts agree that the Jets should add a pass rusher in the first round.

20. N.Y. Jets (10-6) – Leonard Floyd, OLB, Georgia, Jr.

Floyd could be this draft class' best pure pass rusher and would be a steal here for the Jets. Top needs: ILB, OLB, OG, DT

51. N.Y. Jets – Kentrell Brothers, ILB, Missouri, Sr.

83. N.Y. Jets – Javon Hargrave, DT, South Carolina St., Sr.

118. N.Y. Jets - Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi St., Sr.

157. N.Y. Jets - Bryce Williams, TE, East Carolina, Sr.

PICK NO. 20 NYJ EMMANUEL OGBAH DEOKLAHOMA ST.

The Jets need an explosive pass rusher on the edges to destroy the timing of the passing game. Ogbah is a straight-line rusher with a combination of strength and power that could overwhelm right tackles at the next level.

20. New York Jets Leonard Floyd, OLB, Georgia: Please give Todd Bowles more pass rushers.
