The Jets have plenty of needs to address this offseason, and with limited cap room, they will need to find impact players who can contribute right away. Here is a full 7-round mock draft that can fill the Jets’ needs with immediate impact players.

Round 1: Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon

Jordan has incredible athleticism and scheme versatility. He plays in space well, has good bend and balance off the edge and uses speed moves to get most of his sacks. However, there is some concern as to how he can bull rush and hold up against the run in the NFL.

Round 2: Zac Dysert, QB, Miami (OH)

There is no slam-dunk quarterback in this class, but there are several intriguing prospects that may be the next Andy Dalton and surprise everyone. Dystert has a nice arm and throws with anticipation, and he found a way to produce with one of the worst supporting casts in the country.

Round 3: Jordan Reed, TE, Florida

Reed is an ideal “joker” type of tight end that causes plenty of matchup problems against linebackers with his size and athleticism. If Dustin Keller leaves in free agency, he would be the perfect replacement.

Round 4: Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida

The Jets need to add running back depth with Shonn Greene possibly on his way out as a free agent. Gillislee would be a nice complement to Bilal Powell, who has made a case to be a starter this year.

Round 5: Marcus Davis, WR, Virginia Tech

Davis has been very inconsistent in his only season as a full-time starter, but his athleticism and big-play ability is tough to ignore. He is great at high-pointing the ball and getting yards after the catch, but drops and lapses in concentration have plagued him.

Round 6: Phillip Thomas, S, Fresno State

There is a good possibility that both veteran safeties could be on the outs in free agency. Thomas, who led the nation with seven interceptions, is a physical player that can play in either safety spot.

Round 7: Alex Hurt, OT, LSU

The Jets have three offensive lineman up for free agency this year. They need to find at least one young replacement.

    Not bad, I personally like Damontre Moore over Dion Jordan but I’d approve of the pick…Phillip Thomas may go much earlier than the 6th unfortunately, and I also like the idea of maybe looking at OGs like Gabe Jackson or Alvin Bailey in rounds 3-4

  2. NEPD says:

    Phillip Thomas won’t last past the 2nd round in my opinion.

  3. Jake K says:

    Not bad, I’m a huge fan of Zac Dysert, I think he can be a good starter, although I’m not really high on Dion Jordan, I don’t think he is as athletic as many people seem to think he is. In my opinion, our defense is fine, with the emergence of Wilkerson and Coples we will have a much better pass rush next year and should not spend our 1st rounder on a DE/OLB. If we want to have any success at all, we absolutely need to upgrade the offense, preferably with a WR like Keenan Allen or Cordarrelle Patterson. Give our QB, whoever it is next year, some actual weapons to work with.

    Offense is the need. I agree 100% on GIllislee in the 4th. Warmack or Lewan at no. 9. 2nd round is Aboushi OT. 3rd is BAP Dysert or FS stud…5th and 6th rounds get skill position and Fast play makers.. Ari from Kent State,

    Why do you feel thomas slides to the 6th.
