2024 Jets Mock Drafts

Jets Mock Draft 14.0 | A Final Look at Who the Experts Think the Jets Will Select at No. 10

Georgia TE Brock Bowers Selected the Most by Draft Gurus


The Jets currently have five picks in the 2024 NFL Draft, including the 10th overall selection. Below is a compilation of mock drafts. The views expressed are not representative of any Jets personnel.

NFL Network - Daniel Jeremiah
No. 10: WR Rome Odunze (Washington)
"I could see the Jets moving up a bit to secure Odunze, but he falls into their lap in this simulation. He's a perfect fit for what they need. Aaron Rodgers would have a fantastic trio at receiver in Odunze, Garrett Wilson and Mike Williams (once he's healthy)."

ESPN – Matt Miller
No. 10: TE Brock Bowers (Georgia)
"I keep hearing "pass-catcher" when reaching out to sources about the Jets. That's not what I would do when the offensive line is anchored by two 33-year-old tackles in Tyron Smith and Morgan Moses, but again, mock drafts are predictions. The Jets are all-in for 2024, and Bowers' middle-of-the-field ability and skills after the catch would help round out this New York passing game that currently lacks a third option behind Garrett Wilson and Mike Williams. Last season, 494 of Bowers' 714 yards came after the catch."

CBS Sports – Charles Davis
No. 10: OT Taliese Fuaga (Oregon State)
"A top WR is in play here. The best TE in the draft, Brock Bowers, has also felt like a fit. But Jets GM Joe Douglas must do everything in his power to keep Aaron Rodgers on the field, and he might not want to count strictly on his veteran OT acquisitions (Tyron Smith and Morgan Moses) to get the job done."

Yahoo Sports – Charles McDonald & Nate Tice
No. 10: OL Troy Fautanu (Washington)
"The Jets might be playing footsy with Brock Bowers a bit here, but instead they go with Fautanu to give themselves the perfect insurance for their revamped but oft-injured offensive line. Fautanu is a technician with quick feet and could start at any offensive line spot in his career. He might have to this season if the Jets continue to have bad injury luck."

ESPN – Jordan Reid
No. 10: TE Brock Bowers (Georgia)
"It's a tough call between an offensive tackle and an offensive playmaker. New signee Tyron Smith has been injury prone over the past two seasons, leaving the door open to take an OT here. But the pressure to win next season is at an all-time high in New York, as Aaron Rodgers returns from an Achilles injury at age 40. Bowers would give him an immediate top-tier option in the passing game behind Garrett Wilson, and the Jets would love his after-the-catch ability."

The Athletic – Dane Brugler
No. 8: WR Malik Nabers (LSU)
**Projected Trade with the Falcons**
"For a team like the Jets that's looking to add an offensive playmaker, moving up two spots for a player the caliber of Nabers would make a ton of sense. A starting three of Garrett Wilson, Mike Williams and Nabers? That'd be tough to stop."

ESPN – Field Yates
No. 15: OT Taliese Fuaga (Oregon State)
**Projected Trade with the Colts**
"Let's settle one of the biggest draft debates of the past month -- and one that has existed since the Jets acquired Tyron Smith and Morgan Moses this offseason. Should New York further invest in the offensive line or draft an immediate contributor at a different spot? I believe GM Joe Douglas will choose to add another big blocker after the Jets used 12 different offensive line combinations in 2023. Fuaga is a mauler who profiles as a long-term starter at tackle with the added ability to play guard. Landing him and picking up an extra pick would be a win for the Jets."

NFL Network – Peter Schrager
No. 10: TE Brock Bowers (Georgia)
"Even with stud OTs Joe Alt and Taliese Fuaga on the board, I think the Jets go pass catcher here. If Rome Odunze and Malik Nabers are both gone, Bowers could be the pick. He's as clean a tight end prospect as you'll find."

The Athletic – NFL Staff
No. 10: WR Brian Thomas Jr. (LSU)
"Pretty much the worst-case scenario happened here for the Jets. All four of the top quarterbacks, three wide receivers, Alt and Bowers were taken. It decimated the draft board and removed much of the appeal for any team that might've wanted to trade up. But the Jets will still be happy to land a receiver they rate highly — and who many around the league don't think would be a reach this high. Thomas is a dynamic playmaker and down-the-field threat who wouldn't have to step in as a No. 1 or even No. 2 receiver with Garrett Wilson and Mike Williams in the fold — and also would serve as ideal insurance if Williams isn't himself coming off ACL surgery. It was tempting to take an offensive lineman such as Troy Fautanu or Taliese Fuaga, but the winds for the Jets seem to be blowing in the direction of another pass catcher for Aaron Rodgers."
