Skimming through myriad mock drafts that have surfaced ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft, many believe Jets GM Joe Douglas will be targeting a No. 1 receiver for Sam Darnold. There are a few playmakers for New York to choose from, including Alabama's Jerry Jeudy, Oklahoma's CeeDee Lamb, and Clemson's Tee Higgins

Having a top receiver is definitely a need for the Jets, but is that what they should be focused on with the No. 11 overall pick? What about protecting Darnold? 

While there's multiple playmakers to salivate over in the first round, there's just as many offensive linemen to bulk up that unit for the Jets.

After having the No. 3 pick in the NFL Draft in 2018 and 2019 and nabbing Sam Darnold and Quinnen Williams, the Jets find themselves all the way down at No. 11 for the 2020 draft.

But there will still be plenty of elite players to choose from.

Here's how the latest mocks see things shaking out...

The Jets' 6-2 finish has given the franchise a renewed sense of hope, even though GM Joe Douglas didn't want to use that word. Hope, he said, is "not a strategy." The only way they can really capitalize on their strong finish is with a plan.

And they'll need a good one, too, because while Douglas is right that "Going 6-2, that's not luck," it's also not the sign of a finished product. The Jets were a disappointing 7-9 overall this season and did not look like a franchise on the verge of a long-awaited breakthrough. They have big, gaping holes throughout their roster.

So there is a lot of work still to do.

Upon the completion of his fourth season in the NFL, Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson is set to hit free agency, leaving general manager Joe Douglas with a decision to make.

Anderson was the Jets' second-leading receiver on the 2019 season, a big-play threat with 52 receptions for 779 yards (15.0 average) and five touchdowns in 16 games (15 starts).

After becoming a restricted free agent at the end of the 2018 season, Anderson signed a one-year contract at roughly $3 million. Will he remain with the Jets or explore his options elsewhere?

Robby Anderson will hit free agency for the first time in his career, and it seems that there will not be any hometown discount given to the Jets when it comes to signing the wide receiver this offseason.

Since signing with the Jets as an undrafted free agent in 2016, Anderson -- who was born in New Jersey -- has been one of the top receivers on the team. He has amassed over 3,000 yards and caught 20 touchdowns over the last four seasons.

But Anderson will look to find his value in free agency and seems to be looking forward to the opportunity.

After Sunday's 13-6 win over the Buffalo Bills, the New York Jets ended a roller-coaster ride of a 2019 season at 7-9 overall.

Winners in six of their last eight games, following a 1-7 start, can the Jets now keep the momentum pushing into 2020?

"Yeah, you'd always hope to think that's a possibility," said first-year head coach Adam Gase. "We'll kind of have to see how everything goes with the offseason, training camp -- you just never know who much the team changes, through injuries and things like that. But I do think it's a good kind of first year with guys going through some adversity and finding a way to dig themselves out."

With Buffalo locked into the fifth seed and the Jets eliminated from playoff contention about a month ago, Sunday's game predictably took on the characteristics of a game where nobody really wanted to be there. Sam Darnold's one-yard touchdown pass to Jamison Crowder in the fourth quarter ultimately keyed the Jets 13-6 win.

In pouring rain, the Jets - playing mostly against back-ups - led just 3-0 at the half following a disjointed affair that featured turnovers, missed kicks and all-around sloppy play.

The second half wasn't any less scrappy, even though the rain eased off a bit, but the Jets finally drove for the game's only touchdown after the Bills had tied the score. Darnold's pass to Crowder finished off a drive keyed by a couple of nice plays by back-up receiver Vyncint Smith.

The Jets will be without two offensive linemen on Sunday against the Bills and could be without a number of other players with eight listed as questionable.

Tom Compton (calf) and Alex Lewis (ankle) were listed as out for Sunday's AFC East matchup on the Jets injury report on Friday afternoon.

Joining the offensive line duo on the report as questionable to suit up Sunday were Jamal Adams (ankle), Henry Anderson (knee/shoulder), Robby Anderson (calf), Kelvin Beachum (back/ankles), Kenneth Dixon (illness), Steve McLendon (knee/hip), Brian Poole (ankle) and Demaryius Thomas (hamstring/knee).

Jets GM Joe Douglas has a lot of work to do this offseason as he begins to reshape the roster the way he wants it to be. And he'll start with the Jets' 23 unrestricted free agents -- most of whom will likely be gone when he's done.

Here's a look at those players -- and whether Douglas should keep them or not -- plus the lone restricted free agent, and a few other players who could be, and perhaps should be, offseason salary cap cuts:

Former Jets quarterback Chad Pennington had a solid career with the team, throwing for 13,783 yards and 82 touchdowns in 61 starts for the Jets over eight seasons (2000-2007).

He took the Jets to playoffs three times, something fans expect current starting quarterback Sam Darnold to do as well. Darnold has continued to improve since the Jets drafted him with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, and Pennington clearly sees those improvements happening this season.

"Although we would say that it has been up and down, I do believe there has been considerable improvement," Pennington said. "Where earlier in the year, you probably would see four to five decisions that you would question. Now you're only seeing only one to two decisions that we're questioning.

After the Jets had Wednesday off, they returned to action Thursday in Florham Park, New Jersey, for practice ahead of their 2019 season finale Sunday at the Buffalo Bills.

As the Jets (6-9) get back into action for the 1 p.m. kickoff against the Bills (10-5) at New Era Field in Orchard Park, New York, head coach Adam Gase set the scene prior to Thursday's practice.

From a key injury update to a Week 17 preview and a big-picture outlook for the Jets as a whole, below is a handful of takeaways following Gase's morning press conference.

The Jets listed 12 players on Wednesday's injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills, many of which did not surprise.

One noteworthy entry, though, was Robby Anderson.

New York's big-play receiver was estimated -- the team did not practice on Christmas Day -- as limited with a calf injury.

In a game that meant a lot more to the Steelers than it did the Jets, it took the visitors a while to get going. Pittsburgh fell two scores behind early and, although they tied the game just before halftime, the Jets managed to shut them out after half time to hold on for a hard-fought 16-10 win.

The Jets were in control for most of the first half. They played the run well, generated pressure and intercepted two Devlin Hodges passes to knock him out of the game. However, Mason Rudolph came off the bench and gave the Steelers a spark, leading them to a field goal and then following that up with a late touchdown to tie the score.

Offensively, the Jets had put together a nice touchdown drive to start the game but then once again the offense faltered once they got through the scripted portion of the gameplan. Sam Darnold's fumble after the Jets reached midfield on an attempted two-minute drill would set up thetying score.

The Jets may enter their matchup with the Steelers shorthanded on both sides of the ball, as the team released their final injury report before Sunday's game.

Demaryius Thomas and offensive lineman Tom Compton are listed as doubtful to play against Pittsburgh, while Jamal Adams, Quinnen Williams, Robby Anderson, Arthur Maulet, Brian Poole and Bilal Powell are questionable.

Thomas and Compton both did not participate in practice on Friday, and Adams and Williams were among a long list of players to practice in a limited role.

Ahead of another matchup with an impressive defense, Adam Gase spoke about how Sam Darnold performed his last time out against the Ravens' stellar defense.

Darnold went 18-for-32 for 218 yards, two touchdowns and an interception against Baltimore during Week 15's edition of Thursday night football, but the Ravens' offense was too much for the Jets to handle as they fell, 42-21.

The second-year quarterback connected with Jamison Crowder for both of his scores on the day, including a pinpoint pass that allowed Crowder to toe-tap in a touchdown on third and goal.

The Jets, like most of the league this season, had a hard time stopping MVP-favorite Lamar Jackson last night in Baltimore and fell to the Ravens 42-21 on Thursday Night Football.

On Friday, coach Adam Gase spoke to the media over a conference call...

Here are four Takeaways from Gase's conference call

1) A video of Gase and Jets quarterback Sam Darnold arguing with each other on the sideline went viral after the game, especially since Darnold is known for typically being a level-headed guy, but Gase just said that actually the two were both agreeing on the same point.

BALTIMORE - Gregg Williams' defense never had a chance.

Facing the powerful Ravens and the dangerous Lamar Jackson without a bunch of their best players went exactly as expected for the Jets on Sunday night. The Ravens' MVP candidate threw for five touchdowns and ran for 86 yards as the Jets were blown out by the Ravens, 42-21

And what else would anyone expect with the Jets playing with no Jamal Adams, no Quinnen Williams, no Brian Poole, and the usual patchwork cast at linebacker and cornerback. They played hard and were actually much better in the second half, but all that was just way too much to overcome. Jackson, taken 29 spots after the Jets took Sam Darnold in the 2018 draft, was everything he was advertised to be. He completed 15 of 23 passes for 212 yards and averaged nearly 11 yards per rush. When he took off with the ball, either to run or throw, the Jets had no one that could keep up.

That's not really surprising considering that Adams, Poole and Williams are three of the best athletes on the Jets' defense. Had they had a full complement of players, Gregg Williams could have used Adams as a spy. That at least might have slowed Jackson down a little bit and minimized the damage, if nothing else.

Odell Beckham Jr. reportedly wants out of Cleveland, but could his next destination be a place that he already once called home?

Before Thursday's kickoff between the Jets and Ravens, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reported that Beckham is 'not afraid of a return to New York,' according to someone familiar with the wide receiver.

The Jets, of course, have some questions at wide receiver moving forward, with Robby Anderson headed for free agency after this season.

This has been a particularly frustrating season for Jets' wide receiver Robby Anderson. Entering the year, the Jets were hopeful he was going to have a breakout season and establish himself as a bona fide number one threat. For a variety of reasons, that hasn't happened as he had disappointing numbers in the first half of the season.  

However, he's been playing some of the best football of his career over the past three weeks. Let's investigate what's behind this upturn in fortunes and what effect this will have had on the pending free agent's value in the open market.

Down the stretch of the New York Jets' 22-21 win over the Miami Dolphins, quarterback Sam Darnold did not flinch.

With an assist from kicker Sam Ficken, who nailed consecutive fourth-quarter tries from 42 and 44 yards -- the latter as time expired -- Darnold engineered back-to-back scoring drives, including the game-winning march, as the Jets (5-8) held off the Dolphins (3-10) Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

"I think it's huge, especially when you practice that situation so much in the offseason," Darnold said of the Jets' 49-yard drive in seven plays and 1:33 to down the Dolphins. "To be able to execute that in a real game, it's huge for our confidence. At the same time, we practice it all the time, so we just went out there and did our job. (Wide receiver) Vyncint (Smith) made a great play out there and obviously Sam did a great job kicking the ball."

Jets WR Robby Anderson said earlier in the week that he considers himself a top-five NFL wide receiver. And when such a statement is made, that person needs to back it up.

Anderson did just that Sunday in the Jets' 22-21 win over the Dolphins, where he hauled in seven catches for 116 yards and a touchdown. 

"We hot right now," Anderson told SNY's Jeane Coakley after the game. "I feel like I'm in the zone, I feel like he's in the zone. We've just got to keep it going.

Odell Beckham Jr. might just have talked his way out of another city and another franchise, and that opens up some tantalizing possibilities. He still is -- when his body is healthy and his mind is right -- one of the best receivers in football. 

The Jets, of course, really do need a No. 1 receiver.

But what they don't need is a Beckham-sized headache.

Christopher Johnson has already promised that Adam Gase won't be fired and he'll be the Jets coach at the start of next season. There are no indications at all that the Jets CEO is willing to change his mind, no matter what happens down the stretch of the season.

But Gase sure has to be stretching his boss' patience.

Gase needed an absolute gift from the Dolphins and the officials to avoid what would have been another embarrassing loss on Sunday. The Jets won when a pass interference non-call was overturned on replay, giving them another shot to get into game-winning field goal range. Then, Sam Ficken nailed a 44-yarder as time expired to give the Jets a 22-21 win.

On "Star Wars Day" at Metlife Stadium, the force definitely wasn't strong with the Raiders.  

Sam Darnold passed for over 300 yards and two scores, and also rushed for a score as the Jets swept Oakland aside impressively to put a major dent in the Raiders' postseason hopes. Beating lowly teams like Washington and the Giants is one thing, but this was the kind of win which will get people looking at this Jets team and it's short-to-medium term future in a different way.

It was a career day for Jets quarterback Sam Darnold on Sunday against the Redskins, as the No. 3 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft threw for a personal best four touchdowns in the win.

Darnold was 19-of-30 passing for 293 yards to go along with four touchdowns and an interception. He averaged 9.8 yards per attempt, a big time improvement from his season average of 6.4 yards per attempt. 

He finished the game with a quarterback rating of 121.3, which is the second highest of his career and best rating in a game this season. His career-high quarterback rating of 128.4 came in Week 16 of the 2018 season against the Green Bay Packers. Darnold's previous season-high rating of 113.8 came in the team's Week 6 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

The saddest thing about the current state of the Jets is that this was supposed to be the year they arrived. After nine years of waiting for a playoff game, after enduring three years of rebuilding under ex-GM Mike Maccagnan, it was all supposed to come together in 2019.

Not only didn't that happen, but now the Jets appear to be on the brink of a rebuilding project again.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The season has already been embarrassing for the Giants. On Sunday they managed to make it worse.

And that's a huge problem for Giants head coach Pat Shurmur and his coaching staff after the Giants lost to the awful Jets, 34-27. Things were bad enough, but a loss to the crosstown rivals is a humiliating defeat that is sure to enrage owner John Mara. Even worse: They've now got two weeks to stew about it, thanks to an ill-timed bye.

To this point, Shurmur wasn't really on a hot seat and his coaching staff wasn't in much danger. The Giants underwent an uncharacteristic, in-season change just two years ago and don't really have an appetite to do that again. GM Dave Gettleman also genuinely seems to like Shurmur as a coach, and according to a team source, has preached patience and believes the team is headed in the right direction.

The Jets lost some protection for Sam Darnold in their tight matchup with the Giants Sunday, as right guard Brian Winters has been ruled out for the remainder of the game with a shoulder injury.

On a 3rd-and-11, Darnold tried connecting with Robby Anderson for the first down, but Anderson couldn't complete the catch before being taken down hard to the ground. The receiver was shaken up on the play and seemed to hurt his shoulder/collarbone, but was able to leave the field under his own power and eventually return to the game.

Back at the line of scrimmage, Winters was hit by another member of the offensive line and went down holding his shoulder area. He too was able to leave the field on his own after trainers came to check on him while down on the field.

The Giants and Jets are a combined 3-14, one year after going a combined 9-23, one year after going a combined 8-24. That's a 20-61 record over the last 2 ½ seasons, for a "winning" percentage of .246.

So no, the Giants and Jets don't match up particularly well with the rest of the professional football world right now. But how do they match up with each other?

In advance of their big showdown on Sunday at the Meadowlands, let's take a look:

There are a lot of reasons why this season has gone off the rails for the Jets, and a lot of excuses that Adam Gase could easily use to explain it.

But really, there's no excuse for this.

The Jets just lost a game, by a significant amount, to the worst team in the NFL -- or what was the worst team in the NFL -- and a team that many people around the league seriously believe are trying to lose so they can the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. The Jets' 26-18 loss in Miami has to rank right up there as one of the worst losses in franchise history.

A few days after trade deadline rumors led to a rift between the Jets and star safety Jamal Adams, things are starting to improve.

Adams, who the Jets were receiving calls on and who later confirmed his desire to be traded to the Cowboys if a deal went down, spoke with team owner Christopher Johnson on Friday, with Adams referring to him afterward as "very genuine and authentic."

"Me and Mr. Johnson are really close," Adams said. "I have a lot of respect for him. ... that was the guy that i was comfortable with talking to. ... he cares not just about football players. He cares for you as a person."

Speaking on Uninterrupted's '17 Weeks' podcast, Jets running back Le'Veon Bell explained that there were at least four teams interested in trading for his services -- the Texans, Packers, Chiefs, and Steelers.

"The trade rumors were definitely true," Bell said. "It was interesting, just after being in this city for six, seven months, I love this city. I love the city of New York. I actually stay in New Jersey but I'm up in New York all the time. I love the fans of New York City."

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano had previously reported the interest from the Chiefs and Titans, and has now confirmed that the Packers called Jets GM Joe Doulgas as well.

On Wednedsay, Jets S Jamal Adams voiced his displeasures with how the NFL trade deadline went. For a second, it looked like Adams was heading to Dallas to become a Cowboy. And though it didn't happen, it certainly rubbed Adams the wrong way -- enough to tell the world how he felt. 

Adams remains steadfast in not wanting to talk to Jes GM Joe Douglas about the situation just yet, saying that things need to cool down first. And while Adams was saying how he felt, Le'Veon Bell made sure to crack a joke on he way past the podium.

Bell, who is usually in high spirits, said on Thursday that he hasn't discussed the situation with Adams at all.

Robby Anderson is happy to still be with the Jets.

The fourth-year wide receiver's name was reported as one of other NFL team's interest, but Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET trade deadline came and went with Anderson in New York.

When he met with reporters Wednesday after practice, Anderson expressed his relief to remain a part of Gang Green and get after the rest of the season as the Jets (1-6) look to turn 2019 around.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Le'Veon Bell and Jamal Adams were on the trading block on Tuesday, and both could have been dealt if the price was right. Was a deal unlikely? Yes. But it was certainly possible. And it might be possible again in the offseason, too.

But the best-case scenario for the Jets in the offseason is exactly what happened on Tuesday, when both Bell and Adams learned they'd still be wearing Jets green. Because those two, along with quarterback Sam Darnold, are the three players the Jets should build around.

They can't dump them for future draft picks and subject their weary fan base to another rebuilding project again.

It was a crazy 48 hours leading up to the NFL trade deadline for the Jets, but the end result had many names floated on the trade market staying in the green and white for the rest of the season. Only Leonard Williams was traded away to the Giants in exchange for some draft capital. 

Players like Jamal Adams, Le'Veon Bell, and Robby Anderson were reportedly names the Jets were taking calls on, with the most traction around Adams. But now that it's over, the Jets have to get their focus back on the Dolphins this week. 

And that's exactly what head coach Adam Gase wants to do. The other stuff that transpired will be handled inside One Jets Drive.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Joe Douglas had a pretty uneventful trading deadline day. After all, he didn't do anything. His big move - the Leonard Williams trade - came the day before.

That should've been the story, and it would've been the story, except for one important thing: Douglas made it clear that he was willing to listen to anyone about almost everyone. If the phone rang, he was going to answer it. If someone had an offer to make, he would listen, just in case it was an offer he couldn't refuse.

The Jets made one move at the NFL trade deadline, but it could have been more for GM Joe Douglas as rumors were flying around prior to teams needing to put the pencils and deals down at 4 p.m. on Tuesday. 

Players like S Jamal Adams, WR Robby Anderson, and RB Le'Veon Bell highlighted the rumor mill leading up to the deadline, but the Jets remained steadfast and didn't lower their value of these players, among others.

Many expected the Jets to sell off their appealing assets, especially with their current 1-6 record. Douglas spoke to the media to address these rumors, and simply said this...

Shortly after the NFL's 4:00 p.m. trade deadline came and went, Jets GM Joe Douglas met with the media to discuss the move the team made, and the ones they didn't make. 

In his opening remarks, Douglas said that with all the names that were floating around in rumors today, seemingly Le'Veon Bell, Robby Anderson, Jamal Adams, the Jets were not actively shopping those players to other teams, but they would listen when calls came in. 

"It's been a very busy few hours, as you guys can imagine. We fielded a lot of phone calls on a lot of players. Some players it's been public, other players it hasn't been public," Douglas explained. "One thing I will say is that on the players that were leaked out today, those weren't players that we were shopping, but where I'm from and what I was taught is that when a team calls you, you should always listen to what they have to say. 

"So, that's what we did, we listened, we had good conversations, there was some productive conversations, but at the end of the day, there was no fire sale, there's no garage sale going on with these players. We value these guys a lot, and ultimately the offers that we received for these players didn't equal the value that we have for them."

The Jets may have gotten a jump on the trading deadline by shipping Leonard Williams to the Giants on Monday. But it's clear now that was only the beginning.

The Jets were holding what sure looked like a firesale in the hours leading up to the trading deadline at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, with almost everyone on their roster up for grabs, according to multiple sources.

When the Jets opened for business in recent weeks with an eye on the Tuesday trading deadline, one thing was immediately clear: There was more interest around the league in receiver Robby Anderson than defensive lineman Leonard Williams.

And many expect Anderson will be the next to go.

The speedy receiver has drawn interest from multiple teams, according to several NFL sources, and the Jets have made it clear they're willing to deal him for the right price. Exactly what that price is remains unclear, but most people believe that a third-round pick would do it. That's exactly what the Eagles gave up last year to get receiver Golden Tate from Detroit.

Sam Darnold may not have been seeing ghosts this time, but he had plenty of reasons to be scared.

The Jets' offensive line was atrocious, again, in the Jets' 29-15 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Darnold was constantly on the run, was sacked eight times, and they weren't much better in the running game where Le'Veon Bell barely had any room to run.

The result was another offensive disaster. The Jets scored on a 93-yard drive on their opening possession - their first opening-drive touchdown in 31 tries. The rest of the game they only had 120 more yards for a pathetic total of 213.

It's a mess.

The Jets have made WR Robby Anderson available in advance of the trade deadline, and the Raiders are among the teams interested in dealing for him, reports Connor Hughes of The Athletic

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano pointed out earlier this week that two other teams in particular could have their eyes set on Anderson: the Packers and Eagles.

The trade deadline is Oct. 29 at 4 p.m.

According to The Daily News' Manish Mehta, the Jets have "made it clear to teams" that Anderson can be had for the right price. Since Anderson is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, the Jets could get some draft capital in return if they don't see themselves re-signing him in the offseason.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- People around the NFL are circling the Jets like vultures, believing their roster is ripe for the picking. They see talent there, even though it's collectively not working. And they see a GM in charge of a roster he didn't choose or build.

That's a formula that usually leads to a firesale, and that's what many around the NFL are expecting from the Jets between now and the NFL trading deadline on Tuesday afternoon. They have some very interesting pieces that may not have a long-term future in New York. The big prize is Leonard Williams, but someone could get a consolation prize like receiver Robby Anderson, too.

Who else could be traded? And will it really be a case of "Everything (almost) must go!"? Here's all the latest information on the Jets' trade possibilities, including sourced material, rumors and reports on the tradeable assets they have:

If the Jets elect to become sellers leading up to the NFL trade deadline, could Robby Anderson be headed for a new team?

According to a report from Bleacher Report's Connor Rogers, there is interest around the league for Anderson's services.

Rogers notes that teams called the Jets last year attempting to trade for the wide receiver, but the Jets, led by GM Mike Maccagnan, had no intentions of moving him. 

It will certainly be interesting to see what the price for starting wide receivers will be at this year's trade deadline on October 29 at 4 PM. The 49ers got things started on Tuesday, acquiring Emmanuel Sanders and a fifth round pick from the Broncos in exchange for a third round pick and a fourth round pick in next year's draft.
