2021 New York Jets Draft

New York Jets Draft: New Mock Draft From Top Draft Analyst Has Gang Green Improving On Both Sides Of The Ball

This morning, Clayton Smarslok posted his latest 7 round New York Jets mock draft in which he had Gang Green selecting BYU quarterback Zach Wilson at #2 overall and using a 3rd round pick to move up from #23 to #19 so they could select a dynamic WR in the form of the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, Devonta Smith.

So, how does that match up with what the top national draft analysts are predicting?

Well, echoing one of Clayton’s previous 7 round Jets mock drafts and the most recent thoughts of ESPN’s Todd McShay, NFL.com’s Lance Zierlien is out with a brand new 1st round mock draft & he has the Jets splitting their 1st round resources on offense and defense via BYU quarterback Zach Wilson and Georgia EDGE Azeez Ojulari.

Regarding the Wilson selection, here’s what Zierlien wrote:

“He has average size but above-average arm talent. If the Jets get the Wilson from 2020, as opposed to 2019, things could be looking up real quick.”

As for the Ojulari pick, the NFL Media Draft Analyst opined:

“Ojulari could stand to use a little more weight on his frame and additional refinement in his pass-rushing plan, but he has plenty of upside and fits a glaring need for the Jets’ defense.”

Beyond the Jets, it is worth noting that Zierlien had five quarterbacks going in the top 15, with Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence at #1 to Jacksonville, Wilson to the Jets, NDSU’s Trey Lance at #4 to Atlanta, OSU QB Justin Fields to Denver at #9 and Alabama QB Mac Jones to New England at #15.
