2023 Jets Mock Drafts

Jets Mock Draft 4.0 | NFL Network Projects Alabama DB Brian Branch to Green & White

Pair of Offensive Linemen End up in Green and White in Different Projections


The Jets have six picks in the 2023 NFL Draft, including the 13th overall selection. Below is a compilation of mock drafts. The views expressed are not representative of any Jets personnel.

NFL.com - Lance Zierlein
No. 13: CB Brian Branch (Alabama)
"Smart, versatile and highly consistent, Branch can step in at nickel back or free safety to make the defense that much stouter."

ESPN - Matt Miller
No. 13: OT Paris Johnson (Ohio State)
"The Mekhi Becton experiment hasn't worked in New York after just 15 starts in his career and none since Week 1 of the 2021 season. The Jets need a left tackle, and Johnson was very good for Ohio State holding down that spot. The junior didn't allow a sack until the Michigan game and surrendered just two on the season. A starter at right guard before this year, Johnson has the agility, balance and size (6-6, 310 pounds) to be a true Day 1 left tackle in the NFL. He'll need to get a little stronger at the point of attack, but his frame will support that. For the Jets, with so much up in the air offensively, finding a long-term left tackle is key in this draft."

No. 43: S Antonio Johnson (Texas A&M)
"A do-it-all safety with impressive height-weight-speed numbers at 6-3, 195 pounds, Johnson can play free safety or nickel cornerback. And some NFL scouts say they even believe his length is suited to play outside corner. The Jets' need for a playmaking free safety makes Johnson a great fit."

CBS Sports - Ryan Wilson
No. 13: OL O'Cyrus Torrence (Florida)
"Torrence transferred from Louisiana and didn't miss a beat. He was dominant for Florida last fall, he was dominant during Senior Bowl practices, and if history is any guide, he'll be dominant in the NFL, too."
