2017 NFL Mock Draft - New York Jets Mock Draft
On this page, you will find all of our picks for the New York Jets in our 2017 NFL Mock Draft from Kevin Hanson.
Here are the picks in our 2017 NFL Mock Draft for the Jets:
|1.06||6||Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina|
|Adding Josh McCown, who turns 38 in July, to the quarterback room on a one-year deal doesn't eliminate the team's need to find a long-term solution at quarterback. ESPN's Rich Cimini puts the "over/under" on McCown starts at four and expects last year's second-round reach, Christian Hackenberg, to make starts.|
At a minimum, the Jets are doing their due diligence on the quarterback prospects and have recently had Trubisky in for a visit. Earlier this offseason, they had a private workout with him as well.
The biggest knock on Trubisky is his relative lack of experience as a starter (only one season), but he could at least enter the 2017 season as the backup to McCown in this scenario. Possessing a strong arm and mobility, Trubisky completed 68.2 percent of his pass attempts with 30 touchdowns and only six interceptions in 2016 including a 17-to-none TD-INT ratio in the red zone.
|2.07||39||Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama|
|I'm not sure that Humphrey lasts until Round 2, but if he does, it's unlikely that the Jets would pass on him here. The Jets pass defense ranked in the bottom 10 in Y/A (7.5), pass TDs (30) and passes intercepted (eight). The Jets signed Morris Claiborne in free agency as a projected starter, but he signed just a one-year deal.|
|3.06||70||Marcus Maye, S, Florida|
|3.43||107||Carlos Henderson, WR, Louisiana Tech|
|5.06||150||Josh Malone, WR, Tennessee|
|6.07||191||Cameron Tom, C, Southern Mississippi|
|7.06||224||Justin Senior, OT, Mississippi State|
