NFL Network’s Mike Mayock stayed away from mock drafts for the most part this year during the process. He decided to do only one, which he released shortly before the Draft. Mayock sent Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield to the Jets with the third overall pick.
3. New York Jets – Baker Mayfield, QB (Oklahoma)
Sam Darnold goes first overall to the Browns, and Saquon Barkley goes second to the Giants in this mock draft.
For other quarterbacks, Mayock has Josh Allen falling to sixth, where the Bills get him after trading up with the Colts. Josh Rosen’s stock collapses in this mock. The UCLA product falls all the way to the 15th pick where he is selected by what would be a thrilled Cardinals team. Lamar Jackson goes one pick later to the Baltimore Ravens.
So there you have it. One final mock draft has Mayfield going to the Jets. Tonight we find out whether it’s accurate.
