Every year here at SB Nation the team sites put together a mock draft. We play the role of general manager for our respective teams.

The Jets came up today with the third overall pick. Arizona had selected Kyler Murray, while San Francisco took Nick Bosa.

My choice was Josh Allen, the edge rusher out of Kentucky. In this mock there are no trades so moving back for more picks was not an option. With that in mind, I addressed a chronic problem area for the Jets with a high end prospect.

In this scenario, the pick will likely come down to Allen or Alabama defensive lineman Quinnen Williams. I don’t think you could go wrong with either, but for me positional value won out. The Jets have needed to address the edge for the longest time.

Michael Nania recorded a short GGN podcast segment with me to discuss the pick. You can listen to hear more details below.
