Mock draft 4.0!
-round 1 (pick 6)..the pick: jamal adams, safety, lsu. adams is probably the most strong and physical safety in the entire draft and is a true game changer. he won't get you 5+ interceptions a season but he will rack up the tackles and wreak havoc on opposing running backs and wide receivers. he is very good in zone coverage and he does get the job done in man coverage. perhaps his biggest attribute is that he is a natural born leader which the jets desperately need in their secondary. adams will be a very solid addition for the jets secondary and will keep opposing offensive coordinators second guessing their play calling.
-round 2 (pick 39)..the pick: kevin king, cornerback, washington. i made this pick in my 3rd mock draft and i am sticking to it. standing at pretty good size for a cb at 6'3". king met with the jets just a few days ago which already shows that the jets do have interest in the senior cornerback. he had 2 interceptions last season and a total of 6 over his 4 years at washington but put up a pretty good total of passes defended at 13 last season. he does have good speed and could be an immediate impact corner at the nfl level. i think he is must take for the jets if he is sitting there at the 39th pick especially with the depleted secondary. adams and king could become the center of the jets secondary for years to come.
-round 3 (pick 70)..the pick: chris godwin, wr, penn st. he is a deep threat down. his ability to separate and create space between himself and the opposing secondary is very intriguing especially for a team that does not have a very good quarterback. his speed and can't miss elusiveness will keep opposite defensives on edge when you have decker, enunwa and anderson running around as well.
-round 3 (pick 107)..the pick: jake butt, te, michigan. once projected a first round pick in the 2017 draft, b**t tore his acl in the orange bowl and his stock dropped dramatically and even as much as into the 4th round in the cases of other mock drafts. if b**t is there even a few picks before pick 107 the jets should trade up and pounce. he has a very high ceiling. #jets #jetsnation #nyj #nyjets
