Manic Monday: Mock Draft NYJ


Jacob Anthony Serrano

With the Draft fast approaching, I wanted to take a closer look at my favorite team in the New York Jets.

The Jets have a lot of needs and with 21 picks over the next two years and have 5 picks in the first 3 rounds this year.

Let’s take a closer look at the needs of the Jets.


Who will be playing at QB for the Jets is the biggest need as Sam Darnold was traded to the Carolina Panthers recently. The talk is about Zach Wilson and it seems like the Jets are very interested in him. Wilson could very well be the pick at No. 2.

The rest of the Jets needs after that fall to the offensive line and the cornerback area, the Jets could also use a running back and something I would like to see is a fullback, something the Jets haven’t truly had in a while.

The Jets could use another tight end outside of Chris Herndon and that’s if he shows promise this year. The Jets could also be in the market for another wideout and a kicker.

My Mock:

No. 23 Jets select Teven Jenkins Tackle Oklahoma State

If you have not seen tape on Jenkins you will know his name soon. Jenkins was an absolute bulldozer at Oklahoma and knows how to play other positions on the line outside of tackle. He reminds me of a second Mechki Becton with the way he uses his physical ability to move defenders.

No. 34 Jets select Travis Etienne RB Clemson

Arguably the best running back in the class, the Clemson RB recently said his game would fit well in New York. The Jets do have Telvin Colemen, Ty Johnson, Josh Adams, and LaMichael Perine on the roster, but Etienne has a ton of talent and with a staff that was ground and pound in San Francisco the Jets could use a back with his ability. 

No. 86 Jets select Tommy Tremble TE ND

The Jets could use another complement to Chris Herndon in the passing game, but Tremble will provide a huge asset in the running game as well. At Notre Dame, Tremble lived in the trenches and did a lot of the dirty work. He has the spirit and grittiness of a lineman and he will go out and catch passes as well. George Kittle in San Francisco is the same way and as mentioned before the Jets in this new ground and pound system are going to need players to live in the trenches. He is the ultimate compliment at tight end and would provide a boost to this Jets offense.

The rest of my mock featured here is filling needs for the team. The Jets are in dire need of Defensive Back help and Stokes and Brown could easily get the job done. BYU’s Milne had over 1,000 yards and 8TDs a season ago and he would be reuniting with former QB Zach Wilson. 

Lastly, I have the Jets selecting Aaron Banks from ND who is an absolute house. At 6”5 over 330lbs Banks is a monster and a force to be reckoned with and would add to the already physical and massive Jets O-line.
