New York Jets mock draft: Finding a franchise quarterback

Grant SmithApr 13, 2018

This is a draft where the Bills can re-shape their roster, or make a big trade to move up on a franchise quarterback. The offense will no doubt be the focus for this already talented team. A four-year starter at left guard during his time in Williamsburg, Hilland received All-Colonial Athletic Association First Team honors following a senior season in which he started all 11 games.

Our No. 1 off-ball linebacker in the class, Smith is a true three-down player capable of performing at a high level not just as a run-stopper, but as a pass-rusher and coverage defender as well. Vander Esch led all FBS inside linebackers previous year in both run stops (57) and run-stop percentage (15.9 percent), and he also earned a strong coverage grade of 86.2. That wouldn't be the worst thing, but it also is a risk for the team to take. Adding receivers will not hurt either to help Marcus Mariota. And with it, the importance seems to get reduced by a greater and greater number. They started off well but then lost both J.J. Watt and Deshaun Watson to injuries.

The Jets' move up to the top three of the Draft did not come without a significant cost, but at this point, the cost of moving up means nothing in comparison to the decision that is about to be made with that pick. A long shot to make an National Football League roster like most Tribe players, Anderson can nonetheless take solace in the fact that one former College player, Luke Rhodes '16, has earned a full-time long snapping gig with the Indianapolis Colts. As we all know, this past season was clearly not their year.

With the Patriots having the 23rd and 31st pick, they could go receiver there and with Calvin Ridley and Courtland Sutton possibly off the board, Moore could fall right into their lap. This immediately plugged their two major needs in the draft on defense. They need to hit on their first round pick, and they should be in position to do that. Last year, Evans posted 31 total pressures for Alabama, seven of them sacks. I want to hear from all of you.
