2024 Jets Mock Drafts

Jets Mock Draft 2.0 | CBS Sports Has Joe Douglas Executing Trade in First Round

Green & White Trade with Falcons to No. 4, Select OL


The Jets have nine picks in the 2021 NFL Draft. They have three picks in the first five rounds including the No. 2 and No. 23 overall selection. Below is a compilation of mock drafts. The views expressed are not representative of any Jets personnel.

CBS Sports - Josh Edwards
No. 4 (projected trade with Falcons): OT Rashawn Slater (Northwestern)
"Joe Douglas comes from an executive tree that values offensive line play. If the team is going to move forward with Sam Darnold, they need a strong supporting cast around him. Rashawn Slater could slide in at right tackle and stabilize that unit."

No. 23 (via SEA): WR Kadarius Toney (Florida)
"Between Rashawn Slater and Kadarius Toney, the Jets are finally beginning to surround Sam Darnold with talent that will either lead to his success or his demise. Toney has blistering speed in addition to refined route-running."

NFL Network - Bucky Brooks
No. 2: QB Justin Fields (Ohio State)
"The Jets opt for Fields over BYU's Zach Wilson in this scenario as GM Joe Douglas and coach Robert Saleh build a new-school offense around the former Buckeye QB's unique talents." 

No. 23 (via SEA): RB Travis Etienne (Clemson)
The Jets' shift to a Shanahan-style offense could make Etienne the perfect fit as a one-cut runner with home run speed and acceleration. 

Sports Illustrated - Jack Despeaux
No. 2: QB Justin Fields (Ohio State)
"There is talk that this pick will be Zach Wilson of BYU. However, Fields is a better prospect who possesses excellent physical traits and has shown strong leadership skills. When Fields was hurt against Clemson in the college football playoffs, his toughness united his offense and rallied his team. Those are impressive intangibles that scouts saw and shouldn't be ignored. Add in his talent and traits, this is a no-brainer selection for a team in need of a quarterback."

No. 23 (via SEA): EDGE Joseph Ossai (Texas)
"A nine-technique edge-rusher, Ossai will be a fine addition to Robert Saleh's defense in New York. The Jets have more needs than any team in the NFL but they have players in place who can build on top of additional talent. Ossai being added to this Jets team opens up the potential for defensive tackle Quinnen Williams to have more opportunities as a pass-rusher on the inside. The addition of another edge-rusher in free agency should also help maximize Williams and the trio can be the beginning of a strong Saleh defense in New York."
