New York Jets Needs and 3 Round Mock Draft
class="post-date-wrap left relative post-date-mob">

 

 

Needs: edge rusher, offensive line, tight end, cornerback
 
First Round (20): Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson
 
The Jets need to find a defensive playmaker and edge-rusher. They could also do with a big nose tackle inside to replace Damon Harrison. Without an elite stand up edge-rusher on the board, though, the Jets address their defensive backfield. Alexander is an interesting prospect with plenty of physical gifts, elite mirroring skills, but a lack of production and a propensity to take plays off in the run game. In Todd Bowles’ blitz-heavy system, plenty of pressure is put on corners to play one-on-one with no safety help. Alexander is the best available pure man-to-man corner.
 
Second Round (51): Joshua Perry, ILB, Ohio State
 
After addressing their cornerback need in the first round, the Jets come back to defense and grab a tackling machine in the second. Perry isn’t a great athlete and will have limitations on third downs in the NFL, but he has great instincts, gets off blocks effortlessly and put up huge numbers on a star-studded Buckeyes defense.
 
Round Three (81): Jerrell Adams, TE, South Carolina
 
Adams is a big-time boom-or-bust prospect. He is the best athlete at the tight-end positon in the class but does little to impact the running game and has a number of concentration drops.
