New York Jets: Three-Round 2017 NFL Mock Draft
The New York Jets know that the rest of the season it’s going to be win or go home. They cannot afford another loss if they hope to make the playoffs.
Otherwise they might be staring down the barrel at another high draft pick. In which case there is a strong likelihood they could be thinking about a serious roster turnover given the slew of older bodies they’re leaning on. This latest 2017 NFL mock draft will focus on the early rounds and how things might play out depending on the current situation.
QB, Notre Dame
Odds are that won’t happen, so the team is obligated to get their guy while the opportunity is there. DeShone Kizer is still a talent worthy of a top 10 pick but because Notre Dame continues to fail in their responsibilities to help him, odds are he won’t be the first pick. That could be great news for New York. Kizer is a physical specimen with a strong arm and mobility. He’s very smart, humble and should only get better with proper coaching and weapons.
If not for an untimely injury that sidelined him much of the season, Cameron Sutton would be in the conversation for 1st round cornerbacks. He’s a tough, physical player with the speed and athleticism to handle himself in press coverage. He loves to go one-on-one with receivers and isn’t afraid to get after it. Teams tend to avoid him because he’s good at playing the football and attacking his direction too often has led to big turnovers.
Pitt just engineered one of the biggest upsets of the 2016 season over Clemson, and it was their offense that led the way. Adam Bisnowaty may be the big name that occupies that underrated offensive line of theirs, but Dorian Johnson is gaining some buzz of his own. Though not a premier athlete, he’s a scrappy player who exerts his physical will on defenders, especially in the ground game. Sounds like exactly the type of guy Jets fans would love.
