NFL Draft 2020 – Edge Rusher Rankings & Grade Your Mock!

Another day, another #PickSix! This time, we have landed on the tarmac for Draft Week. Team #TOJ continues our draft coverage with the top six Edge Rushers in the 2020 NFL Draft. The New York Jets got nothing from Henry Anderson, and their best edge rusher was Jordan Jenkins. That is a sad state of affairs, and quiet as kept Edge is the position the Jets need to address right after OT and WR. 

Like a high throw from Bucs QB Tom Brady to WWE 24/7 Champion Rob Gronkowski that goes off his hands, lets return this pick six. 

We, also, continue our #GradeYourMock series where Team TOJ grades a fan-submitted mock.

New York Jets – The Seven Round Mock Draft (JC, 2.0)

Joe Caporoso with the 2.0 version of his seven round mock for the New York Jets

We made it to draft week…so what is another mock? 

In the past, I have done two versions of seven round mock drafts for the New York Jets because my guess at what Mike Maccagnan would and what I would personally do would be completely divergent. We are going with one version this year, which is a hybrid of what I think may happen and what I’d like to see happen. Here is my 1.0 version from last week…

New York Jets 7 Round Mock – Trade-Sanity (JB)

Joe Belic with a 7 round mock for the Jets…chock full of trades

Joe Douglas is always on my mind whenever I peruse the aisles of my local grocery store: Trader Joe’s. I can’t help but to think about Joe’s personal draft day shopping list. We’re all familiar with team needs, but how he plans to cook up results is up for debate.  Nevertheless, I can’t assume Joe is satisfied with his capital, and he will have to figuratively become Trader Joe as bartering may be the only option to fulfill the checklist. I expect the components to be anything but bland; it’ll take a mix of ingredients to create the perfect recipe for success.

NFL Draft 2020 – Offensive Tackle Rankings & Grade Your Mock

Dalbin Osorio ranks the top offensive tackles in the 2020 NFL Draft and we grade your mock!

As currently constructed, the Jets have the worst starting tackles in football hands down in George Fant and Chuma Edoga. Joe Douglas was smart to sign Connor McGovern, one of the better Centers in the NFL, but the OL rebuild is far from finished. Other than WR, this is the only logical position group to be the pick at 11.

NFL Draft 2020 – Top Quarterbacks, Top Running Backs & Grade Your Mock

Dalbin Osorio ranks the top six quarterbacks and top six running backs in the 2020 NFL Draft and grades out your mock draft…

With the NFL Draft 10 nights away, Team #TOJ is about to kick this thing into high gear with more mock drafts and analysis than you can count. Today, we begin with the top 6 QBs and top 6 RBs in the 2020 NFL Draft. While the Jets would be wise to add a young arm to groom behind Sam Darnold, we don’t expect them to be active in the QB market. However, at RB with Leveon Bell entering what is being assumed is the last year of his deal and no backup on the roster I’d expect that position to be addressed in the draft.

New York Jets, NFL Draft 2020 – Full 7 Round Mock Draft

Mock drafts have emerged as the lifeblood of the draft season craze. Various scenarios can, in a heartbeat, not only make one feel uplifted but also discouraged. With that said, I hope this particular piece evokes the former and leaves you with an optimistic view of what’s to come.

Note: I understand most fans, including myself, covet the “Big Four,” but we need to prepare for the likelihood that they won’t be available. In this particular outline, I have the Jets trading down. While I recognize it might not be the desired option by some, it yields the Jets some extra picks and the ability to address other needs.
