New York Jets 2023 Mock Draft Roundup

Photo by Jeff Speer/Icon Sportswire via With the Senior Bowl taking place this weekend in Mobile, Alabama, it is mock draft season. I generally don’t put too much stock in specific predictions about which players the Jets will pick, especially this far out. I do think mocks can be useful in giving us a broad idea of how players are valued and where they are currently expected to go. Of course some players will see their stocks rise and fall as we get to the Combine and pro days. Let’s take a look at the players some prognosticators are currently mocking to the...

Over the past week plus the rumor mill has heated up about the possibility of the Jets making a move for the future Hall of Famer. The first domino to fall this offseason could very well be Raiders quarterback Derek Carr. Carr himself has confirmed he will be...

Hackett will begin prep on who next week. They haven't talked specific names.— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) January 26, 2023 It’s a bit difficult to believe Saleh didn’t discuss names with any candidate. That is...

ESPN’s Mel Kiper has his firs mock of the year, and he has the Jets making a somewhat surprising pick at 13th overall. Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State I thought about an offensive lineman here, but let’s instead reunite my top-ranked receiver in this class with my top-ranked receiver in the 2022 class. The Jets picked Garrett Wilson at No. 10 last April, and he had 83 catches for 1,103 yards as a rookie. But for the Buckeyes in 2021, it was his teammate...

On the final installment of SB Nation Reacts of the season, we asked Jets fans their opinion of what the team should do at quarterback this offseason.

The defensive lineman had a breakout fourth season in the league as he recorded 12 sacks, 12 tackles for a loss, and 28 quarterback hits. He finally looked like the star the Jets were...
