New York Jets Mock Draft – Fifth Round
Tight end was a wasteland for the Jets last season and they will address the position in multiple ways, including a potential pursuit of free agents like Dalton Schultz or Mike Gesicki. Pairing an external addition with Turner, a 6-foot-6 tight end who can be a matchup nightmare for opponents, would significantly bolster New York at a critical position in LaFleur’s offense.
The linebacker position was a significant weakness for the Jets, who only really had C.J. Mosley and waiver claim Quincy Williams play key roles for them in 2021. Seers is a bit of a project out of D-II Lindenwood but his athleticism, tackling ability, and football IQ should make him an asset on special teams with the potential to assume more defensive responsibilities down the line.
New York Jets Mock Draft – Sixth Round
The Jets don’t have a sixth round pick in this draft after dealing it to the Minnesota Vikings as a part of the Chris Herndon trade. The return in that deal was the Jets’ second fourth-round selection.
New York Jets Mock Draft – Seventh Round
The Jets also do not have a seventh round pick after sending this selection, along with linebacker Avery Williamson, to the Pittsburgh Steelers a year ago in exchange for a second fifth-round selection in this draft. This fits a pattern for Douglas, who is willing to flip his late round lottery tickets in trades to help him obtain better assets earlier in the draft.
