With the draft inching closer by the day, we at the Jets Wire have a new mock out. This projection focuses strictly on the Jets and what they could do in the first round.
The direction New York goes on the first day of the 2021 NFL draft ultimately depends on the future of Sam Darnold. This projection comes with the belief that the Jets are ready to move on from Darnold, as New York sends the 23-year-old signal-caller packing in order to pick up an extra pick in the first round.
In this mock draft, the Jets add their potential quarterback of the future — emphasis on potential — an offensive tackle to protect him, and one of the most productive college running backs in recent history. Let’s take a look at who we think the Jets could take with their first-round picks in Jets Wire’s third mock.
