The New York Jets have six selections in the upcoming NFL Draft, so Dalbin Osorio has decided to launch his new article series, Pick Six, with a full NYJ mock draft. In this series, he will take a look at six relevant topics to the current week and/or answer your questions from Twitter…
With the 6th pick, the New York Jets select…
Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson
He is the best pure pass rusher in this draft, with a relentless motor to get to the quarterback. The Jets do not and have not had a rusher like Beasley. He completely changes the dynamic of a defense that has the chance to be among the league’s best. Beasley has the best first step in the draft and while he struggles against the run, can be coached up by defensive line coach Pepper Johnson to be a three down player.
AJ Cann, OG, South Carolina
La’El Collins, AJ Cann, and Cameron Erving will be the best offensive linemen in this draft barring injuries when we look back in a few years. He is incredibly strong, has very good technique, and is as good of a run blocker as he is pass blocker. Cann would immediately be an upgrade over Willie Colon, Brian Winters, or Oday Aboushi and can start from day one.
With the 70th pick, the New York Jets select…
Tyler Lockett, WR, Kansas State
The Jets do not have an overwhelming need at WR and if they get anything from Shaq Evans or Quincy Enunwa, they will have even less of one. However, the one thing they do seem to be missing is speed. Enter the former Kansas State Wildcat. Lockett is the definition of a burner, but is also an underrated route runner.
With the 101st pick, the New York Jets select…
Garrett Grayson, QB, Colorado State
If the Jets draft Grayson here, they are getting a strong value prospect that could theoretically learn from Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith before fighting for the starting position in 2016.
With the 198th pick, the New York Jets select…
Hayes Pullard, ILB, Southern California
We haven’t talked much about Pullard, but he is an active athlete with rangy chase skills. He is physical and can close quickly. Pullard is an angry tackler and brings the lumber whenever he hits someone. He never missed a game in school and also covers adequately.
Nick Marshall, CB, Auburn
Taking Marshall here means you have to be patient as he learns his new position, but learning under Darrelle Revis should speed up his learning curve. He is an incredible athlete and tracked the ball well at the Senior Bowl.
