Analysis

NEW YORK JETS DRAFT FORECAST Posted April 23, 2018
 
Here is a breakdown of the players the Jets should be targeting with each of their picks in this week’s NFL Draft. These players should be valued within one full round either way.

FIRST ROUND PICK (3)
 
Top Choice…QB Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma.
 
Also in the running…QB Josh Rosen, UCLA.
 
Mayfield is the top choice based on both his talent and his ability to fit in easier with the New York area media and Jets owner, Woody Johnson. 
 
THIRD ROUND PICK (72)
 
Top Choice…OL Braden Smith, Auburn.
 
Also in the running…RB Kalen Ballage, Arizona State; NT Tim Settle.
 
Best of the rest…TE Mark Andrews, Oklahoma; WR DJ Chark, LSU; OT Brian O’Neill, Pittsburgh.
 
The Jets can’t go wrong with any of these players. Smith provides versatility to an offensive line that needs more talent across the board making him a valuable roster addition. 
 
FOURTH ROUND PICK (107)
 
Top Choice…RB Justin Jackson, Northwestern.
 
Also in the running…CB Dane Cruikshank, Arizona; WR Michael Gallup, Colorado State; RB Nyheim Hines, NC State; OLB Kemoko Turay, Rutgers. 
 
Best of the rest…CB Grant Haley, Penn State; WR Allen Lazard, Iowa State; DB Quenton Meeks, Stanford; OLB Josh Sweat, FSU.
 
Jackson is going to end up as one of the top value players in this draft and the Jets still need to find their long-term No. 1. Jackson would be him.
 
FIFTH ROUND PICK (157)
 
Top Choice…OLB Dorance Armstrong, Kansas.
 
Also in the running…C Mason Cole, Michigan; OLB Jeff Holland, Auburn; TE Dalton Schultz, Stanford; WR Justin Watson, Penn.
 
Best of the rest…CB Brandon Facyson, Virginia Tech; CB/KR Darius Phillips, W Michigan; OT Joseph Noteboom, TCU; FB Jaylen Samuels, NC State.
 
The Jets can’t come out of this draft without taking an edge rusher and Armstrong would be a bargain here. If you combine his competitiveness, effort and production capabilities with the coaching of Hall of Fame linebacker Coach Kevin Greene, the possibilities are endless. 
 
SIXTH ROUND PICK (179)
 
Top Choice…LB Joel Lanning, Iowa State.
 
Also in the running…NT Derrick Nnadi, FSU; OLB Joe Ostman, C Michigan; OT Greg Senat, Wagner.
 
Best of the rest…S Troy Apke, Penn State; WR Marcell Ateman, Oklahoma State; PK Daniel Carlson, Auburn; RB Darrel Williams, LSU. 
 
Lanning is the type of versatile football player every team can use. He’ll also add quality production on special teams. 
 
SEVENTH ROUND PICK (235)
 
Top Choice…TE Andrew Vollert, Weber State. 
 
Also in the running…RB Jarvion Franklin, W Michigan; WR Cam Phillips, Virginia Tech; FS Jeremy Reaves, S Alabama.
 
Best of the rest…CB Jalen Davis, Utah State; CB Heath Harding, Miami, Oh; RB Phillip Lindsay, Colorado; RB Ito Smith, S Mississippi. 
 
The FCS All-American would be a welcomed addition to the Jets depth chart in need of playmaking talent following the departure of last year’s starter, Austin Seferian-Jenkins. He’s a worthwhile gamble here.
