Clatyon Smarslok with a 2 round, post free agency mock draft
With April just a couple days away and the draft less than a month, it seems like no better time to put out one last two round mock draft. The draft is always a crapshoot and is literally impossible to predict, especially for us folk that don’t have ties with General Managers and scouts. Either way, I still love writing them and I believe you still love to read them because here you are.
The toughest thing about writing a mock draft is mixing up what you would do and what you’re hearing. For instance, I would not draft a quarterback first overall this year but I would be stupid not to put Kyler Murray there because that’s all we’ve been told for the last month-plus. So this will be exactly that, a mix of the two. This time there will be multiple trades and some noticeable names missing. As always, let me know what you think @CSmarsNFLDraft on Twitter!
Joe Caporoso with a Turn On The Jets 12 Pack of thoughts on the 2019 NFL Draft and New York Jets strategy around it…
Clayton Smarslok with five NFL Draft prospects the New York Jets could target who had the most to prove at the scouting combine…
There is still quite a bit of time until the draft is here but the NFL Combine will suffice, for now. As big as the event has become, people have been prone to move prospects too high and too low based off of one workout, myself included (i.e. Orlando Brown in 2018). What this event really does is confirm some of the questions some of these prospects have on tape or make you go back to see if the tape can confirm what you see in Indianapolis. Staying with Orlando Brown, when he performed poorly in the athletic drills last year, it should not have been a surprise.
He wasn’t successful at Oklahoma because he was an athletic freak, he was successful because of his smarts, good technique and length just to name a few reasons. So when people like myself moved him down the board, the one weekend got in our heads, which you cannot do. So don’t use these next few days to move your board around like crazy, let them answer questions. Here are some potential Jets targets that have those questions that need to be answered, whether it be in the first round or the middle rounds.
Dan Essien examines how the Jets can build their offensive line and take a big step to becoming a contender.
As we wrap up this season of the NFL, it’s a good time to recap the lessons the Jets have to take into next season in order to be successful. One of those lessons is that they have to make a concerted effort to build their offensive line. It’s not a position group that excites the casual fan. But a strong, disciplined offensive line might be the key to the Jets future. Let’s take a look at some of the teams that found success this season and where some team’s broke down to examine how the Jets can move forward.
Clayton Smarslok with a full two round mock for the 2019 NFL Draft
As a Jets fan, the season could have ended in a better way than it did. It wasn’t ideal but after seeing the Patriots win five previous titles, I have learned to live with it and move on from it and that’s exactly what I am doing here. It is officially draft season with the 2018-19 football season completely behind us. With the season coming to an end, it seems like the perfect time to come out with my first two round mock draft of the year.
In this edition it was a mixture of what should happen and predictions of what will happen on the last weekend of April. For instance, because of Jeffery Simmons’ issues in the past, he will not be submitted into this mock draft or any others in the future, even though he will likely find his way into the first round. This one’s for you Jets fans, hope you like it!

The first part of the recap on the offensive side of the ball, came out on Friday, before the game was played. But with the game now in the past, here are some thoughts on what went down with the defensive side during and after my trip in Mobile.
