New York Jets 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 6.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 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.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the New York Jets, check out our 2021 New York Jets Mock Draft Database.

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

EDSFootball - Hanson (3/5)

2. Zach Wilson, QB, BYU

Given the holes up and down their roster, the Jets could go in a number of different directions here.

Even though Sam Darnold won't turn 24 until June and wasn't put in a position to succeed, he has struggled with durability and hasn't yet shown that he's the long-term answer. Wilson has enjoyed a pre-draft rise similar to that of Joe Burrow last year. Although not the biggest quarterback in this draft class, Wilson uses his athleticism to make and extend plays and is especially accurate throwing downfield.

23. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota

Bateman played only five games in an abbreviated 2020 season, but he had 60 catches for 1,219 yards and 11 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2019. The polished and productive receiver ran a sub-4.4 forty (per Bateman himself). While times at training facilities and/or Pro Days are less reliable from a comparison standpoint, the (much) faster-than-expected time only boosts his draft stock.

ESPN - McShay (3/4)

2. Zach Wilson, QB, BYU

The logic here stands from my last mock draft: I expect Wilson to be the No. 2 overall pick, whether or not it is the Jets making it. Projecting this pick isn't necessarily suggesting they should or will move on from Sam Darnold, but if they do, Wilson is the obvious next move. If they don't, watch for a QB-needy team to trade up to take him here. Wilson is creative and can extend plays, he can hit the deep ball and his toughness in the pocket stands out.

Rich Cimini on his fit with the Jets: If it is the Jets taking Wilson, that would mean the end for Darnold, who would be traded -- and perhaps before the Jets are even on the clock. I think New York would look to acquire a "bridge" quarterback to ease the transition for Wilson, but it also needs to find some playmakers to put around him.

23. Azeez Ojulari, EDGE, Georgia

The Jets landed a quarterback at No. 2, so let's pivot to defense here. They need someone who can get home on the QB besides Quinnen Williams, who led the team with seven sacks in 2020. Ojulari is a pass-rush specialist of sorts, showing good speed, bend and first-step quickness. As for the lack of playmakers on offense to support Wilson, keep an eye on free agency this month and then Day 2 at the draft, where numerous high-end receivers and running backs will be available.

Rich Cimini on his fit with the Jets: The Jets haven't had an explosive edge rusher in 15 years. The question with Ojulari is scheme fit, and at 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, he could be a tweener for the Jets' new 4-3 front.

CBS Sports - Trapasso (3/3)

2. Zach Wilson, QB, BYU

Barring a trade for Deshaun Watson, or an amazingly well-kept secret that they love another quarterback, Wilson will land with the Jets.

23. Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue

If Moore can stay healthy, he can be a tremendous weapon for Wilson right away.

The Athletic -- Rank: 31

Marcus Maye, S: He's played 100 percent of the Jets' defensive snaps and has performed well in multiple roles. Maye is the type of young player (he'll be 28 at the start of next season) the Jets should be looking to hold on to, especially given their lack of talent.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 31

They've won two straight games and have looked decent in doing so. They should just keep Sam Darnold.
