Jets Draft Needs

by Samantha Previte

  • QB: The Jets were expected to draft a quarterback well before they even traded Sam Darnold to the Panthers. They ranked second-to-last in passing yards (174.8) in 2020, and while they lost their chance at Trevor Lawrence after winning two games, they should do fine with another top prospect like BYU’s Zach Wilson.
  • RB: After the failed Le’Veon Bell experiment, 37-year-old Frank Gore was their top rusher with 653 yards in 2020. The Jets’ last 1,000-yard rusher was Chris Ivory in 2015 (1,070).
  • TE: The Jets utilized four tight ends last year: Chris Herndon, Ryan Griffin, Daniel Brown and Trevon Wesco. Herndon was the best of the bunch and finished 35th at the position in receiving yards (287) and while we continue to wait for his breakout,
  • CB/S: The Jets lost safety Jamal Adams via trade in 2020 and the secondary allowed the fifth-most passing yards in the NFL (275.6).
  • OL: In spite of drafting first-rounder Mekhi Becton in 2020, the offensive line allowed the ninth-most sacks per game (2.7). They’ll want to edify this unit to protect their first-round prize at QB.

by Chris Raybon

  • QB: The starter will be addressed with the No. 2 overall pick but the team could also use a veteran backup after losing Joe Flacco to the Eagles.
  • G: Alex Lewis is a poor pass blocker who ranked 70th of 86 guards in Pass Blocking Efficiency (96.3) last season. Greg Van Roten is a poor run blocker who graded 64th who is now 31 years old. Both are expendable.
  • C: Both starting options — Connor McGovern and Dan Feeney — tied for the league-lead among centers with 33 pressures allowed last season.
  • TE: Over the past two seasons, Chris Herndon is averaging 9.2 yards per catch and 0.86 yards per route with more drops (5) than TDs (3).
  • OLB: Shaq Lawson and Vinny Curry should improve a pass rush that ranked 21st in sacks (31) and 25th in pressure rate (21.7%), but Curry turns 33 in June and shouldn’t be expected to play more than 40% of the snaps.
  • CB: The current starting options consist of Blessaun Austin, Bryce Hall, Corey Ballentine, Javelin Guidry, Lamar Jackson, Kyron Brown, and Zane Lewis. Who? Exactly.
