Dan Kadar of our network here at SB Nation has a new mock draft out. In this mock, he has the Jets picking Michigan prospect Rashan Gary with the third overall pick.
3. New York Jets: Rashan Gary, DE, Michigan
The Jets’ pass rush situation is grim. There are several good pass rushers who are free agents this offseason, including Demarcus Lawrence Jadeveon Clowney, Trey Flowers, and Frank Clark. But teams don’t often let those players go. With that in mind, the Jets could turn to the draft to find a pass rusher. If new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams prefers an edge player, Gary is absolutely in play with the third pick. He’s the total package as an end with his athleticism and size combination.
If the Jets go a different route, they could look for a starter on the offensive line or at Quinnen Williams.
Options: Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama; Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama
Nick Bosa and Josh Allen were the first two players off the board.
A lot of Jets fans want to upgrade the weapons around Sam Darnold with the team’s first Draft pick, but that might necessitate trading down. The general consensus at this point seems to be that the top end talent is on the defensive side of the ball.
