New York Jets NFL Mock Drafts


On this page, you will find all of our picks for the New York Jets in Kevin Hanson's 2021 NFL Mock Draft and Brendan Donahue's 2021 NFL Mock Draft.

Jets Picks in Hanson's 2021 NFL Mock

2. Zach Wilson, QB, BYU

Sam Darnold won't turn 24 until June and the coaching staff hasn't put him in a position to succeed, but he has also struggled with durability and hasn't shown that he's the long-term answer. Stated differently, Darnold hasn't shown enough in three years to prevent Joe Douglas & Co. from resetting at the most important position in sports.

Enjoying a pre-draft rise similar to that of Joe Burrow last year, Wilson uses his athleticism to make and extend plays and is especially accurate throwing downfield. Appearing on the Dan Patrick Show, Chris Simms said, "I'm blown away by Zach Wilson, Dan. You know I look at it, and look at, and say this is an Aaron Rodgers, a Patrick Mahomes, Brett Favre-ish type guy."

Anyone scanning the first pick column of our NFL Mock Draft Database will see only one prospect's name (Trevor Lawrence) since last May. With that said, many evaluators view Wilson as worthy of being the No. 1 overall pick in a typical year and some (most notably Simms) even have ranked Wilson as the QB1 in the class.

23. Gregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami (FL)

A former high school receiver and safety, Rousseau has outstanding length and was second in the nation in sacks (15.5) in 2019 behind only Ohio State's Chase Young (16.5) before opting out of the 2020 season.

34. Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU

66. Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina

86. Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State

Jets Picks in Donahue's 2021 NFL Mock

2. Zach Wilson, QB, BYU

This is where the draft really begins and it could go in many different directions this year. The Jets certainly have the ammo to make a trade for a big-name QB, but as of now, it looks like they may stay put and instead trade away who was recently considered their franchise QB. Neither GM Joe Douglas or new head coach Robert Salah were part of the process in drafting Sam Darnold, so it would make sense that they are ok moving on from him and bringing in their own guy. Enter Zach Wilson, who has seen the biggest rise up draft boards in the past year. His 2020 season justifies the praise he has been receiving as he threw for 33 TDs and only three interceptions while completing 73.5% of his passes.

23. Azeez Ojulari, EDGE, Georgia

The run on the defensive line continues as new head coach Robert Salah goes with what he knows best and that's getting pressure on the QB. Ajulari had 9.5 sacks in 10 games last year while also forcing four fumbles.

Jets Picks from 2022 NFL Mock Draft

2. Kayvon Thibodeaux, EDGE, Oregon

The top-ranked recruit on the ESPN 300 in 2019, Thibodeaux burst onto the scene with 12.0 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss over 21 games in his first two seasons.

Current Oregon (and former Texas A&M) DC Tim DeRuyter recently compared Thibodeaux's explosiveness to one of his former pupils (Von Miller). DeRuyter said that Kayvon is "probably the first person that I've seen in a while who has that explosiveness off the edge like Von" [Miller].

Jets Picks from 2023 NFL Mock Draft

3. Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson

Murphy stepped onto the Clemson campus with NFL-ready size and athleticism. As a true freshman, Murphy led the Tigers in tackles for loss (12.5) and forced fumbles (three), had four sacks and was as good as it gets against the run.
