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.

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.
