Mel Kiper's second Mock Draft for ESPN has the Jets selecting LSU running back Leonard Fournette with the sixth overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.
Kiper notes that while the Jets have a quarterback problem to solve and could also draft a defender with the pick, Fournette may be the best player available and the Jets would "know they can get a ton of reps from Fournette right now, and this is a team that needs to be better."
Fournette had 129 carries for 843 yards and eight touchdowns last season for LSU, adding another 146 yards on 15 receptions.
The Jets have RBs Matt Forte, Bilal Powell, Khiry Robinson, Brandon Wilds, and Brandon Burks currently on the roster.
Kiper's first Mock Draft for ESPN had the Jets selecting Ohio State CB Marshon Lattimore.
The draft takes place from Apil 27-29 in Philadelphia.
