All but two teams -- the Chiefs and 49ers -- are left to worry about their offseasons with Super Bowl LIV set for Feb. 2. While NFL free agency kicks off in March, the efforts of scouting top NFL Draft prospects will ramp up.
The Jets have the No. 11 overall pick in this year's Draft after picking at No. 3 in 2018 and 2019. Sam Darnold and Quinnen Williams were used with those selections.
Who will join them with the latest first round selection in GM Joe Douglas' first draft? Here's what experts believe will happen...
NFL.com: DE K'Lavon Chaisson, LSU
In Daniel Jeremiah's first mock draft of the season, he has the Jets passing on a No. 1 receiver like Jerry Jeudy and CeeDee Lamb as well as offensive line help. But Douglas still needs to upgrade his defensive line, too, and that's where this standout from the College Football Playoff comes into play.
At 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, Chaisson was an animal to finish off his junior season. He collected 4.5 sacks in the three previous games leading up to the national championship, and though he didn't record one in that game, he was a pest to Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence.
Gregg Williams would love to have a playmaker on the line like him, and Douglas provides that here.
Sports Illustrated: OT Tristan Wirfs, Iowa
As we mentioned, the Jets' offensive line needs some serious work -- and that spans across every position. The tackle spots are the most important, though, and that is where the Jets improve here with a Big Ten stud.
Wirfs, standing at 6-foot-5, 322 pounds, is a beast. The Draft Network loves his athleticism, and says "he's got grace and nimble feet despite his looming stature." That's exactly what you want out of a tackle, no matter where that will be on the line.
Though Kelvin Beachum has been average on the left side, the Jets would much rather fix the right side first with Brandon Shell and Chuma Edoga splitting those duties last season. Beachum could always shift over to the right if the Jets wanted Wirfs on the left. Either way, he's a solid pass and run blocker that Darnold would appreciate.
Sporting News: OT Austin Jackson, USC
Jackson has found his way up the draft ranks lately, as experts are beginning to see just how athletic he is. At 6-foot-6, 310 pounds, he's great in pass protection and he actually makes up for some technique mistakes because of the athleticism.
That might not fly in the NFL, but the Jets are banking on developing that rawness into what could be Darnold's blindside protection for years to come. The draft process, including the NFL Combine, could boost his draft stock more after interviews and measurables come through.
Walter Football: OT Mekhi Becton, Louisville
If you thought Wirfs and Jackson were massive, you might want to find a different word for Becton. He's 6-foot-7, 369 pounds. Let that sink in.
When you read that height and weight, immediately thinking Becton is slow or doesn't move well would naturally come to mind. But that's the thing: you're wrong. Scouts like his technique that goes along with his pro-level power on his blocks.
Not only will Darnold love him on the left side, but Le'Veon Bell would be happy to run behind him as well.
SB Nation: WR CeeDee Lamb, Oklahoma
Not all believe O-line is the top priority for Douglas. Instead, the player many believe is the top receiver in the draft falls to the Jets and Douglas can't resist a potential No. 1 receiver for his quarterback.
Lamb, 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, has an incredible ability to haul in the football no matter the circumstances. The Draft Network loves his ability to track the football and he has a natural way of positioning his body to seal off any chance of his defender breaking up the pass. Lamb is also very solid in route-running -- an area where some believe he beats Jeudy.
From his play-making abilities after the catch and affinity for making deep balls count, Lamb will have a field day with Darnold throwing the pigskin his way.
