Jets Draft Picks 2021
Draft Pick 1.13

CB Trevor Williams- 5'11" 191lbs Penn State (84 ovr)

We did not resign veteran CB Darrell Green this season which made it a priority to draft a CB. With the 13th pick, we selected CB Trevor Williams and we were happy to get him. Although not the fastest CB coming out of the draft, Williams has great acceleration (93 acc) to close on receivers. When he does close, Williams shows the great hands (71 cth) he has by coming up with interceptions. Williams will be starting opposite CB Chad Cotton, drafted 1.17 in 2017, who has been outstanding. Williams has many similar abilities to Cotton and we feel we have solidified our secondary with these two young talented corners.

Draft Pick 2.13

MLB Antonio Morrison- 6'1" 241lbs Florida (75 ovr)

Long time Jet and veteran MLB Kiko Alonso found a home known to many as the Black Hole or Raider Nation. Getting a MLB was a key in the second round. By the time we were ready to pick, 4 MLBs had already been selected. I feel we were lucky to get Morrison the way the MLBs were flying off the board. Although Morrison lacks the speed that other MLBs that were taken before him, Morrison showed, while playing for Florida, that he had great awareness (78 awr) on the field. His agility (82 agi) gave him the ability to shed blocks and make the one on one tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Morrison will be starting and playing alongside last years 3rd round draft pick Riley. As a rookie, Riley set the Jets rookie record for tackles for lossess (TFL) for the year, 17. We feel that Morrison could break that record this season.

Draft Pick 3.13

WR Trent Taylor- 5'8" 178lbs L.A. Tech (75 ovr)

At this round we were interested in getting a WR to fill the 4th receiver slot and KR/PR as well. Trent Taylor is the receiver we were looking for. The one thing that stands out is his incredible speed (95 spd). As they say, you can't teach speed. Taylor's speed makes up for his diminutive size (5'8"). His awareness (71 awr) on the field has shown why he is a weapon when it comes to kick returns and punt returns. As a 4th receiver, he will be going up against much slower corners, so Taylor should get plenty of opportunity to make a big catch.

Draft Pick 4.13

LOLB Ryan Carter- 6'2" 235lbs Michigan (75 ovr)

Last season we had 3 players who were injured for the entire season and we decided to draft quality back up players. Carter had some off field issues in Michigan that probably caused him to fall but we saw enough of him to know that he can be that player to step in should anything happen to our starting LOLB.

Draft Pick 5.13

HB Malcolm Brown- 5'11" 227lbs Texas (73 ovr)

Once again we were looking for a player to back up a starter. With all the injuries, half backs are always one hit away from an injury. We feel we can never have enough backs and we were glad to get Malcolm Brown. Brown has decent speed (88 spd) and acceleration (89 acc). The one knock on him in college was, for his size, he tried to dance around tackles instead of running through them which is the reason he has a low break tackle (68 btk). We hope through training camp and PFL Europe, he will improve in that area.

Jets Draft Pick 2020
Draft Pick 1.16

HB Joe Mixon-6'1" 228lbs Oklahoma (81 ovr)

Veteran HB Gio Bernard found a new home in Cincy so priority number one was to get a half back. After Fournette, Mixon was second on our board. One word says it all about Mixon....SPEED! Mixon was the fastest HB coming out of the draft. He may be the fastest HB in the PFL. Along with his speed (98 spd) and acceleration (93 acc), he also can be a threat in the passing game, (77 cth). Mixon may be the most versatile back coming out of this draft. With Bryce Brown getting closer to regression, Mixon will be the #1 back soon and the beast of the AFC East.

Draft Pick 2.16

WR Curtis Samuel-5'11" 196lbs Ohio State (75 ovr)

Last season we drafted in the first round WR Malcom Mitchell (77 ovr) and all he did last season was set rookie Jet records for Yards (1,136), TDs (8), YAC (243) and longest catch (83). Samuel is a clone of Mitchell in height, weight and skills. In fact, he has slightly better speed (93 spd) and better acceleration (91 acc). We hope he can equal or better what Mitchell did last season. With Mitchell on one side and Samuel on the other, QB Dynamite throwing to them, the Jets will be flying high.

Draft Pick 3.16

MLB Duke Riley-6'1" 232lbs LSU (74 ovr)

Riley may not be as fast or as big as we like our middle line backers to be but Riley showed at the combines that he is one of the stronger linebackers (83 str) and has great knowledge of the position (76 awr). Training camp will help him improve and we feel he will learn a lot starting next to veteran MLB Alonso.

Draft Pick 4.16

TE Gerald Everett-6'3" 239lbs Alabama (71 ovr)

Everett will be our 3rd string TE. He has raw talent that in a few season after some training camp and PFL Europe, can get him to number 2 TE.

Draft Pick 5.16

SS Tedric Thompson-6'0" 204lbs Colorado (72 ovr)

Thompson will be backing up all pro Keanu Neal. Thompson has the height and size to be a physical SS but lacks great speed (85 spd). At this stage of the draft, we were looking for a solid back up.

Jets Draft Pick 2019
Draft Pick 1.16

LOLB Desmond Woodson-6'4" 245lbs Texas(83 ovr)

11 year Jet veteran Wayne Odom, drafted in the 1st round of 2008, has been slowing down the past couple of years due to injuries and age (33). It was a priority to draft a LOLB this draft. At 6'4", Woodson has speed (spd 83), great acceleration (acc 84), excellent agility (agi 85) and great awareness (awr 81). We feel he is the perfect LOLB to take over the mantle from Odom. He will also book end last season Jet rookie sensation, ROLB Kyle Fackrell, who set the Jet rookie sack record, eclipsing Odom's record set in 2008. Woodson will have some lofty goals for this season but we feel his talent and a good teacher will get him there.

Draft pick 1.27

WR Malcolm Mitchell-5'11" 200lbs Georgia(77 ovr)

The most prolific offensive wide receiver in Jet history (758 rec./10,274 yds/33 TDs) was traded this off season to the Buccs. There is no way you can replace a receiver who had 92 receptions, 1267 yds and 8 TDs last season but we have to start somewhere and we feel Mitchell has the raw talent to be a great receiver. Although Mitchell is way shorter than Clausen, Mitchell showed at the combine his speed (spd 92) and agility (agi 91). At Georgia, Mitchell made some great catches but every now and then dropped a few easy ones due to lack of concentration. With some time at training camp, Mitchell will be ready to be our #2 wide receiver this season.

Draft pick 3.16

QB Kevin Anderson-6'2" 215lbs Fordham(78 ovr)

This draft class was not a good QB class but with veteran QB Rico Dynamite getting up in age (33) and possibly considering retirement, we realized we needed a QB now to groom. Picking in the 3rd round, we had Anderson top on our list for QB. Although he has a lot to learn, Anderson has a cannon for an arm (THP 96). The strongest in the draft. Throwing power is one thing you can not teach. We know he will need to work on his accuracy (THACC 80) but with training camp and sitting behind a veteran like Rico, we feel Anderson be a stud QB in the future.

Draft pick 5.1

CB Brent Williams-6'1" 198lbs Virginia(72 ovr)

Starting the 5th round we saw there were some good but raw talented CBs available. Williams is one of the taller CBs in this draft class and at 6'1", Williams has good speed (spd 90) and a good jump (jmp 88). He will need to work on acceleration and agility and in time we feel Williams could be a starting CB.

Draft pick 5.16

CB Clarence Waller-5'9" 166lbs Kentucky(72 ovr)

Although we had picked a CB to start the 5th round, we feel you can never have enough CBs on the roster. Especially when the injury bug hits your secondary like it did last season. Waller is another raw talented CB who fell only because of his 5'9" size. Waller is even faster than Wiliams, (spd 91) and has excellent agility (agi 95). With time and training camp, Waller could improve and become a starter one day.

Jets Draft Pick 2018
Draft Pick 1.24

SS Keanu Neal-6'0" 211lbs Florida(91 ovr)

10 year Jet veteran Chris Smith, who was drafted by the Jets, was released this off season. When Neal dropped down to us, we jumped at drafting him. He is simply put, a stud Saftey. Neal has good speed (spd 88) excellent acceleration (acc 93) and great agility (agi 94) in 6'0" frame. His hands is what stood out in the combines (cth 71). He is a complete package and he will be taking over the void left by Smith.

Draft Pick 2.24

ROLB Kyler Fackrell-6'5" 245lbs Utah State(76 ovr)

With Burnside losing a step, we felt we needed to draft a ROLB. Fackrell is one of the bigger outside linebackers coming out of the draft. Although not one of the fastest linebackers, he does have good awareness (awr 77) and good agility (agi 82) for a man his size. With training camp, we feel he will be ready to start for us this season.

Draft Pick 3.24

DT David Onyemata-6'4" 300lbs Marist(74 ovr)

At this round we were looking for players to fill in as backups. Onyemata is a young DT who for his size, has good speed (spd 75) and agility (agi 61). He has a good awareness of the position and we feel will be a good back up to DT Shelton.

Draft Pick 4.24


FS DeAndre Houston-Carso-6'1" 201lbs Will & Mary(76 ovr)

Another back up position we needed to fill. Houston-Carso is a free saftey who is raw but can improve through training camp. Maybe he will be able to start in the future but for now, he will play on special teams and back up FS Iloka.


Draft Pick 5.24

MLB Josh Forrest-6'3" 249lbs Kentucky(67 ovr)

We wanted to draft a MLB but didn't think it would be in round 5. Although Forrest has good size, he lacks the speed we look for. Maybe with training camp, Forrest will improve on some of his skills to become a sold back up MLB.

Jets Draft Picks 2017
Draft Pick 1.17

CB Chad Cotton-5'11" 216lbs Kentucky(83 ovr)

In 2011, the Jets drafted CB D. Green in the 2nd Round, 11th Pick. Since 2008, no other CB has been drafted higher than him until this years #1 DP for the Jets. Chad Cotton, (83 ovr), was the 5th best CB on our board and by the time we were ready to pick, four other CBs had been taken. Although Cotton isn't over 6 feet tall or has blazing speed, over 91, Cotton showed at the combines he has incredible acceleration (96 acc) for closing speed and out of the break speed. His vertical (95 jmp) was one of the best in the entire combines and his catch was 4th best coming out of the draft (65 cth). Cotton immediately gives a boost to a secondary that struggled due to injury or aging corners that could not keep up with opponents wide outs. Cotton and Green will be the best starting CBs since Revis and Cromartie were Jets starters back in 2008. The Jets are excited about this young talented CB.

Draft Pick 2.19

RE Brent Nalen-6'7" 291lbs Oklahoma State(85 ovr)

We dropped down two spots due to a trade with the Colts which brought a young WR Devin Smith to the team. At the 19th pick of the second round, we had no idea what to expect. RE B. Nalen was a 1st rounder on our board, so imagine how we felt to get a 1st round talent in the mid second round. Although Holmes (83 ovr) has been starting for us since he was drafted in 2013 in the 3rd Round, we felt Nalen's (85 ovr) talent would a great addition to an already young studded D-line with 2014 1st Rounder LE K. Ealy and and 2016 1st Rounder DT D. Shelton. Nalen is without doubt a beast at right end. At 6'7" 291 lbs, Nalen has speed (75 spd), acceleration (79 acc) and strength (80 str) and in just a few seasons, can progress even past stud LE Ealy.

Draft Pick 3.17

C Ron Finley-6'7" 323lbs Colorado(81 ovr)

Hard to believe there was still quality talent in the 3rd round but once again, the draft gods smiled upon us. We had Finley as the top Center in the draft. With this pick, we were happy to select Finley. Finley showed at the combines he has good pass blocking and run blocking skills and very agile for his 6'7" frame. The only negative on this young player is his strength (81 str). We hope after training camp, he will be able to build up more strength.

Draft 5.17

SS Chris Rivers-6'0" 216lbs Washington State(73 ovr)

Usually at this round it is slim pickings however we were in a need of a back up SS and Jones was available. Although not a lot of speed or acceleration, Jones was the best that was still available. He will also be on special teams as well.

Jets Off-Season 2016
The Jets acquired the following players to the the team:

CB Devin McCourty-88 ovr 32 yrs old: We were in a need of upgrading our starting CB position with talent and veteran leadership. McCourty has both those things we were looking for in a starting CB. For many years, McCourty was a thorn in our sides when playing for the Patriots but now he will bring a boost to our secondary. McCourty has a knack for the ball and somehow always gets his hands on the ball whether by deflection or interception. We are happy to have him. McCourty will start opposite our young talented CB Green.

RE Adam Carriker-82 ovr 36 yrs old: We signed Carriker because we wanted to have a veteran RE backing up starter J. Holmes. Even with his best years behind him, Carriker still has the speed and strength to get a sack or two while disrupting plays in the backfield.

WR Ronald Johnson-80 ovr 32 yrs old: With the loss of Jock Sanders to free agency, we needed another speedy KR/PR. Even at age 32, Johnson still has incredible speed and acceleration needed to be an effective KR/PR. Johnson will also be an effective backup receiver should we need him due to any injuries to our starting wide outs.

LT Al Schroeder-79 ovr 31 yrs old: First year LT Bryan will be filling in humongous shoes left behind by future hall of famer D. Ferguson and we wanted a veteran presence in our backup LT. Schroeder has been mostly a career back up but we realize he is very talented player. Should Bryan struggle or get hurt, we know we have a very capable back up to step in.

Jets Draft Picks 2016
Draft Pick 1.11

DT Danny Shelton-6'2" 339lbs Washington(89 ovr)

We were estatic to have Shelton fall into our laps at 11th pick. With his thick frame and powerful upper body, Shelton can dominate at the point of attack. He is a space-eater who is able to maintain good positioning against double teams. He comes to a defensive line that needed a serious upgrade especially at the DT spot. He will line up next to stud LE Kony Ealy (89 ovr), 2014 1st round draft pick. His talent will demand double teaming from offensive lines which will hopefully open up more opportuninty for LE Ealy and RE Holmes. We are happy to have Shelton on our team.

Draft Pick 2.11

LT Cedric Ogbuehi-6'5" 306lbs Texas A&M(83 ovr)

The great All-Pro LT Ferguson was picked up and signed by the Jaguars this season. Last years third round draft pick LT Lorenzo Bryan will start for us. So you ask why did we draft Ogbuehi? He showed at the combines he has great speed (70 spd), agility (73 agi) and strength (91 str) that really opened our eyes. He has the foot quickness and the ability to move easily in space. We will move him over to RT where he will start.

Draft Pick 3.11

P Bradley Pinion-6'5" 229lbs Clemson(94 ovr)

Punter Sam Koch's contract ended and he was released, so we were in the market for a new punter. There was not much out in free agency so we decided to draft a punter. First time for everything I guess. Well, if you have to draft a punter, you better get the top one. Pinion was the best in the draft. Pinion has a real big leg (93 pwr) and surprisingly good accurracy (90 acc) for a young punter. A punter with these skills can really be a weapon and help pin our opponents further back on their side of the field.

Draft Pick 4.11

K Justin Manton-6'3" 196lbs Louisville(88 ovr)

Many wondered why we would pick a kicker especially when we resigned Nick Folk, who has only missed 7 FGs in three seasons. Well, as much as we love Folk, he is 35 this season and even though he is very accurrate, he does not have a booming leg (90 pwr). On kickoffs, Folk has 12 touch backs in three seasons. Manton showed in college he has a very powerful leg (94 pwr) and we will use him this season on kickoffs. In a couple of seasons, with some progression, Manton will have the accurracy to go along with his power and he will take over all the kicking duties.

Jets Off-Season 2015
The Jets acquired the following players to the team:

QB Chad Henne-82 ovr 33 yrs old: We lost back up Jermaine Walker and with Trent Edwards losing some skill due to age, we felt Henne had the tools to back up our starter. Although Henne is 33 yrs old, he still has a very strong arm (93 thp) and is quite accurate (89 tha). Should Rico suffer injury during the season, Henne will be able to step right in.

SS Eric Hagg-81 ovr 30 yrs old: Hagg was signed to back up our starter, Chris Smith. Hagg is similar in size and speed with Smith and being in the league for 8 seasons, Hagg will be able to adjust to our system quite easily.

DT Alan Branch-80 ovr 34 yrs old: Branch will be a veteran back up. He has played his entire career with the Steelers and maybe his best years are behind him but we feel that he will be a key veteran on our squad.

WR Jock Sanders-77 ovr 31 yrs old: Sanders was originally drafted by the Jets and was released after 2007 season. After spending several seasons with the Falcons, Sanders has returned to the Jets. He still has incredible speed along with acceleration and we feel he will make an excellent #2 KR next to #1 KR Dri Archer. You can never have enough speed demons when it comes to kick returns and punt returns.

Jets Draft Picks 2015
Draft Pick 1.22

TE Larry Donnell-6'6" 265lbs Grambling State (79 ovr)

With veteran tight end and long time Jet, D. Keller moving on to free agency, it left a void at our#2 TE position. With T. Kelce off the board at 16, we were happy to select Larry Donnell. The first thing you notice is the size Donnell brings to the position. At 6'6", Donnell is the tallest receiver on the team. Not easily accomplished when you have 6'5" wide out on the same team. Although Donnell has tremendous size, he had shown at the combines that he has good agility (82 agi), good speed (80 spd) and acceleration (82 acc) along with great hands (79 cth). He will be a starter alongside our veteran TE DJ Wiliams and we have no doubt he will make an immediate impact for our team.

Draft Pick 2.22

WR Josh Parkman-5'10" 196lbs Florida State (85 ovr)

To be honest, Josh Parkman was not even on our draft board. I guess he wasn't on anyone's list either since he was dropping like a rock with no takers until our pick. How does a wide receiver who is an 85 ovr with 84 cth and a 85 awr not get picked in the first round? Simply put, if you stand 5'10" and have an 86 spd. However, we took a flyer on this kid because we are not drafting for a #1 or even a #2 receiver since we have top receivers in those positions but we figured he could make a great #3 receiver. At the combines he showed he has one of the best hands (84 cth) coming out of the draft, great awareness ( 85 awr) to run precise patterns and good acceleration when he makes his cuts (92 acc). With training camp and a possible rookie boost, Parkman could be a steal. We hope our scouts got this one right.

Draft Pick 3.22

LT Lorenzo Bryan-6'5" 323lbs Kent State (78 ovr)

With all-pro LT Ferguson getting up there with age, we figured it was a good idea to find a young tackle to fill those big shoes. Bryan definitely has the size to do that. Standing at 6'5" and weighing over 320 lbs, Bryan has tremendous strength (90 str) and amazing agility for his size (70 agi). Although a bit raw in his rbk and pbk skills, we feel through training camp and playing behind an all-pro like Ferguson that Bryan could step in as a starter as early as next season.

Draft Pick 4.22

LE George Johnson-6'4" 263lbs Rutgers (77 ovr)

At this round we were looking for a backup LE and were surprised to see Johnson still around. At the combines, Johnson was one of the stronger DEs (85 str) in the draft and has good tackling ability (72 tak). Although not as quick as the other LEs drafted before him, we think he will be a good backup.

Draft Pick 5.22

RG Willie Tennell-6'2" 303lbs Maryland (78 ovr)

At this round you never know what will be available or what you can get but surprisingly RG Tennell was a good player to get at that round. Due to his shorter stature and below average strength (82 str), Tennell fell way down in the draft. However, Tennell displayed some uncanny agility for his size (71 agi) and with some traing camp along with a tour or two in the PFL Europe, Tennell could be a starter at RG or even slide over to Center. Only time will tell.
