Pro Football Focus has released its second mock draft of the year. They have the Jets using their first round pick to upgrade the wide receiver position, selecting Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy.
11. NEW YORK JETS — WR JERRY JEUDY, ALABAMA
Jeudy is the first wideout to come off the board, and his blend of speed, route-running and after-the-catch ability is too much to pass up. His 200-plus yard game against Michigan in the Citrus Bowl showed off his full skillset — his speed from the slot is a nightmare for opposing defenses, and none of the Michigan corners came close to checking him in man coverage.
Joe Burrow, Chase Young, Tua Tagovailoa, Jedrick Wills, Jeff Okudah, Justin Herbert, Isaiah Simmons, Andrew Thomas, Derrick Brown, and Mekhi Becton are off the board for the Jets when they pick in this mock.
In an ideal world, the Jets would address the offensive line with their first pick. Tristan Wirfs is still on the board in this scenario. Of course, it depends on whether the Jets view him as a top tier offensive lineman.
If Joe Douglas and his team do not like any of the offensive linemen available, a receiving target for Sam Darnold would likely be the Plan B.
