Mock Draft Roundup: Who Will Be Available at No. 3?

As Draft Nears, Analysts Believe Jets Could Select Former USC QB Sam Darnold


Bucky Brooks — NFLN — QB Sam Darnold (USC)

The Jets land their desired franchise quarterback in this scenario, which once looked improbable.

Maurice Jones-Drew — NFLN — QB Sam Darnold (USC)
Darnold can sit behind veteran Josh McCown until he's ready to roll. Plus, he will have a young, talented defense to help.

Dane Brugler — — QB Josh Rosen (UCLA)
What we know: The Jets traded a king's ransom for this pick to draft a quarterback. What we don't know: Which quarterbacks will be left for them? Josh Rosen can handle the New York vibe and is ready to play now.

Round 3: WR Equanimeous St. Brown (Notre Dame)

R.J. White — CBS Sports — QB Josh Allen (Wyoming)
I think Allen has the biggest bust potential of all the big-six quarterbacks, but my opinion is worth as much as what you paid for this mock draft. It's clear multiple teams are in love with Allen's upside, and it's tough to see him falling past this point. Aside from Darnold being available at No. 3, any order on the top three quarterbacks wouldn't be surprising in the least.

Round 3: TE Hayden Hurst (South Carolina)
The Jets add talent at tight end after losing Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Chris Trapasso — CBS Sports — QB Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma)
Mayfield is ready to play as a rookie, and his charisma will be on full display as a member of the Jets. Learning from Josh McCown will be very beneficial for him.
