Trade Up to No. 2:Mitchell Trubisky, QB, UNC — "The one-year starter was impressive at North Carolina, showing the presence to maneuver the pocket and the arm to deliver the ball outside the numbers with velocity. Trubisky also has excellent short-area accuracy, and his grade on third downs ranked third in the nation a year ago."**
Chris Burke,* S.I..com Lead Draft Expert* **Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State — "Hooker's inconsistency against the run shows up, but he's brilliant defending the pass."

Garett Boles, T, Utah — "Bolles is an NFL-ready left tackle who's paid drastically less than the current market value for offensive tackles."
NFL Draft Scout
Dane Brugler, *Senior NFL Draft Analyst
Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State* — "The Jets have no choice but to address the secondary this off-season with question marks at both cornerback and safety. Hooker is coming off two surgeries, but is on track to be ready for training camp."
Rob Rang,* Senior NFL Draft Analyst* Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson — "Watson is a polarizing player in the scouting community, dazzling with his dual-threat ability but throwing 30 interceptions over the past two seasons, most in the FBS. His undeniably impressive track record of playing his best under the bright lights could be more valued on Broadway than elsewhere."
Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Media Analyst
Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State — "Lattimore's durability is a concern but he is the most gifted cornerback in this draft class."

*Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson — "Clemson's Deshaun Watson performed exceptionally well throughout the entire [combine]. The two-time Davey O'Brien Award winner as college football's best quarterback looked smooth, in charge and nearly flawless during the throwing portion of his workout. More importantly, the spread quarterback crushed the interview process."
Charley Casserly, NFL Media Analyst
Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State — "Cook is an explosive back who will help the Jets' quarterback, whoever it is."
