Dan Kadar of SB Nation is back with a new mock draft. This mock goes two rounds deep. Kadar has the Jets addressing quarterback and center in this week’s prognostication.

6. New York Jets: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

Missing out on Kirk Cousins and seeing Barkley and Nelson gone would make for a bad Jets offseason. In an ideal situation they’d get the veteran quarterback and another top piece for the offense. If they fail to do that, going after a quarterback in the first round needs to happen. In this case, that’s Mayfield. An even more ideal scenario would be to get Mayfield and let him sit behind a solid starter like one of the Vikings quarterbacks.

37. New York Jets: James Daniels, C, Iowa

Before the first round pick, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Bradley Chubb, Saquon Barkley, and Quenton Nelson were off the board.

You can certainly argue with the players the Jets choose in this mock, but Kadar certainly shows an understanding of the needs the team has with these two selections. The Jets have to find a long-term answer at the quarterback position, and having a quality center would help that quarterback as he enters the league.
