Our newest analyst, Jets Juke lists his predictions for the New York Jets in his First Mock Draft on Field2Court.
Pick 7: Tristan Wirfs, OT Iowa
Easily the best OT in the draft, just a bit under the radar because of his college. Has a very solid future in the NFL. He has grace and nimble feet despite a looming stature (6’5, 322). Dynamic lower half, clean in pass sets, really good as an OT. Imagine what he could be with a proper coach… Note that he also plays both LT and RT.
Pick 39: CJ Henderson, CB Florida
If Henderson falls to 39, or NYJ trades up for another first, he is a must-get. I believe Henderson is the best CB in the draft; not Okudah. Henderson has a lot of potential. He’s lanky, (6’1, 190) athletic (40.5 vert), and plays CB like a receiver.
Pick 66: Joshua Uche, EDGE Michigan
Quick and bendy edge rusher who can dart into the B-gap at will. Don Brown’s system has turned out some of the top LBs and EDGEs in the NFL (Rashan Gary, Devin Bush, Chase Winovich). Uche will be one of them.
Pick 71: Shane Lemieux, OL Oregon
All-American. Decently mobile for a boxy interior blocker. He’s effective as an angular blocker as well as in drive situations. He does a good job in screen game to really sell his pass sets before turning upfield and getting himself set up to work onto the second level. Adequate core strength and secondary anchor, thanks in part to his boxy build. Good in an Inside Zone offense, also known as an Adam Gase offense. Watch him in the Rose Bowl. His presence will be noticeable.
Pick 103: Justin Jefferson, WR LSU
Good athleticism for his position. He displays great instincts against zone and will adjust his route accordingly. He is a sneaky route runner who knows how to set up defenders to win against man coverage. He is good in contested catch situations. Plays with good toughness and will catch over the middle when contact is foreseeable. Appears to be more effective in the intermediate to deep areas. Put Robby Anderson on one side, JJ on the other, and it turns into a lethal combo.
Pick 104: Jack Driscoll, RT Auburn
Transferred from UMass to Auburn. Starting from the second he stepped foot on campus he adapted to the new system as if he’d been there for several seasons. Has an unorthodox style, but it works. He is very lower-heavy, and has some trouble with pass sets, however.
Pick 166: A.J. Dillon, RB Boston College
Dillon is a big bodied back. He’s a punisher. Can break tackles with his athleticism. Dillon has pretty good vision and he’s been exposed to a variety of concepts. He’s most successful in his rushes between the tackles, similar to Gase’s offense. Dillon provides ample yardage after contact and will be a finisher in short yardage situations thanks to his athleticism.
Pick 196: Nico Collins, WR Michigan
Dominating physical profile (6’4 and 220 pounds) and the ball skills to match. Can box out DBs from the catch point. Wins through contact and at the high-point. Potential in his route running, can be developed some more. Great size for a wideout, but can also play the slot, shown while at Michigan. Great long-shot development prospect.
