In a Seven-round Mock Draught, the New York Jets Prioritise Physical Traits and Versatility |Latest Update


I recently stated that mock draughts are largely pointless, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t entertaining. It’s a fun exercise to speculate on your favorite team’s draught strategy, but without a free agency class to provide context, it’s largely a shot in the dark.

Regardless, it’s a good chance to jot down some names of players who might be available in the New York Jets’ roster slots.

If you feel I haven’t addressed a specific positional group, it’s because they didn’t land in the right spot in the simulator and the group was addressed in free agency instead. It’s a great get-out-of-jail-free card for an exercise like this.

For the sake of this mock draught, I’ve decided not to make any trades. It muddies the water, and no one ever agrees on the pick’s worth, so it’s just easier to stick rather than twist when putting these together.

So, without further ado, let’s get right to it.

It’s almost become fashionable in draught circles recently to question Kayvon. The classic “does he play with enough fire?” question has recently surfaced, which smells a little fishy to me. That alone has lowered his draught stock from a guaranteed top-two pick to the early teens.

I still believe Kayvon will be gone by the time the Jets take the field, but if he’s still there, the Jets can’t afford to overthink this one. You sprint to the podium with that selection and don’t look back. He’s built for the Jets’ Wide-9 system; explosion, bend, closing speed, he’s got it all. He’s also a force to be reckoned with against the run.

This is my ideal scenario. Joe Blewett wrote an excellent piece about Kayvon that everyone should read.

I’m constantly switching back and forth with this pick. I want to be a wide receiver, but I never know which one to choose. Do you go with Jameson Williams’ speed? Drake London’s contested catch ability or Garrett Wilson’s route-running? I alternate between all four receivers on a daily basis, but today I’ve settled on Treylon Burks.

Burks has the most YAC of any of the receivers while also having the lowest drop rate. He is versatile enough to play out wide, in the slot, and out of the backfield, and his thick lower body makes him difficult to tackle.

With his elite catch radius and ability to make players miss in space (he led all receivers listed here in missed tackles forced in 2021), London is the other guy I seriously considered here, but he also has the highest drop rate. Burks has a strong frame for pro football and knows how to use it to his advantage.

Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State, second round, pick 35

In 2021, the Jets’ tight end room was a disaster. This will be a top priority during the off-season.

When looking for a TE to fit the Jets’ system, look for someone with dependable hands, some YAC, and the ability to contribute in the run game.

Trey McBride trailed only future star Brock Bowers in yards after the catch from the tight end position among all FBS tight ends with at least 40 targets in 2021. McBride is also a capable run blocker, and while his touchdown total of one is notable, I spoke with someone at Colorado State who blamed his lack of touchdowns entirely on the coaching staff, who have fired this off-season.
