2023 NFL Power Rankings: New York Jets

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 3 roundup for the New York Jets in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 21

Player: DE Bryce Huff
Current contract situation: Under contract through the 2023 season

Huff is an excellent pass-rushing specialist, but he probably will walk after the season because the Jets already have invested heavily at the position. They used first-round picks on Will McDonald IV (2023) and Jermaine Johnson (2022). Huff recorded the highest pressure percentage (25.6%) in 2022 among edge rushers with at least 100 pass-rushing snaps. Huff has drawn trade interest in the past; the question is whether the Jets would part with him before the trading deadline if they fall out of contention. -- Rich Cimini

NFL.com -- Rank: 11

Sunday's loss to the Cowboys was an indication of the clear limitations of the Jets' Aaron Rodgers-less offense when facing a top-tier defense. The offensive line was manhandled, and the run game erased. Zach Wilson ended up leading the Jets in rushing with 36 yards. Garrett Wilson broke free for their one big play of the game offensively, but the rest was frustrating to watch. Meanwhile, I was really shocked to see the Cowboys' offense milling the Jets' defense into grist for four quarters. If the Jets can't keep tough games close, winning without Rodgers will be a massive chore. The Jets came to Zach Wilson's defense after Week 2, which is nice. But will it matter if the other 52 players on the roster don't do their part on the field?

2023 NFL Predictions: AFC East

Before the start of the season, we will post NFL division-by-division predictions for the 2023 NFL regular season and postseason.

Instead of projecting an outright winner and loser in all 272 regular-season games, we've assigned a win probability to each team in every game and totalled them up.

The AFC East is one of the most competitive divisions in all of football from top to bottom. In fact, only the four AFC North teams are projected to win more games combined than the four AFC East teams in our full-season projections.

Aaron Rodgers: After winning back-to-back NFL MVP awards in 2020 and 2021, Rodgers numbers (without Davante Adams) were well below his career averages across the board in 2022 — 64.6% (65.3% career average), 4.8 TD% (6.2%), 2.2 INT% (1.4%), 6.8 Y/A (7.7) and 91.1 passer rating (103.6). Regardless of how long the next era of his career lasts, Rodgers joins a Jets team that has a better supporting cast than he had last year in Green Bay.

New York Jets Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2024 NFL Draft, we will update our New York Jets Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the New York Jets from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the New York Jets:

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/2)

27. Graham Barton, OT, Duke

Barton might not have elite length, but he moves well and consistently executes his assignments on film. He might be 2024's version of Peter Skoronski.

CBS Sports - Ryan Wilson (5/2)

27. Javon Bullard, S, Georgia

Aaron Rodgers never had a first-round WR in Green Bay and the Jets take on that tradition in New York.

Fox Sports - Rob Rang (5/1)

13. Emeka Egbuka, WR, Ohio State

The Jets, of course, boast the reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year in fellow wideout Garrett Wilson (among other talented pass-catchers), but with Aaron Rodgers now in the fold, providing him dynamic weapons is a must. Egbuka is often overshadowed at Ohio State, but scouts rave about his pro-ready play and mentality.

For the Win - Christian D'Andrea (4/30)

21. Maason Smith, IDL, LSU

Free agent addition Solomon Thomas could be the answer next to Quinnen Williams, but he's only signed through 2023. Smith would provide an inexpensive replacement capable of bringing more to the front seven thanks to his blend of size (6-foot-5, 300 pounds), strength and athleticism. Of course, he'll have to put a 2022 season marred by injury behind him to get there.
