The Jets finally added another CB in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Blessaun Austin is a former Rutgers starter who’s college career was hamstrung by injuries.

The New York Jets went back to defense in the fifth round of the NFL Draft selecting LB Blake Cashman from Minnesota.

Final 2019 1st Round Mock Draft (CS)

Clayton Smarslok with his final full first round 2019 NFL mock draft

Draft Day is finally upon us. It’s been a long road, especially for us Jets fans, but it’s bittersweet that it’s coming to an end.

With that being said, this is what I think is going to happen and absolutely not what I would do for all 32 selections.
