Let's take a look at some recent mock drafts since the Rams traded for the top overall pick.

20. NYJ PAXTON LYNCH QB MEMPHIS

Lynch has outstanding size and arm talent, but he will need some time to develop.

20. New York Jets Leonard Floyd, OLB, Georgia: They have to get more pass-rush help. Floyd would fit in their 3-4 scheme as an edge guy.

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.

Mark Selig (The Baltimore Sun)

20. New York Jets: Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis

Does anybody else find it suspicious that the Jets haven't signed Ryan Fitzpatrick yet? They must like someone in this draft.
