Team Needs:

Wide Receiver

Overview

The room is one piece away, still needing a man beater who can win outside the numbers after missing out on Odell Beckham Jr. As it stands now, they are a bit too dependent on an overpaid, inconsistent Corey Davis and recently added Mecole Hardman who is probably best suited as a situational, role player. If they don't go the JSN route at #13 and stick to their expected trench positions on day one and day two, it wouldn't be surprising to see them consider a day three addition at the position. They may also still be in the veteran trade market here.

  • Jaxon Smith-Njigba

    WR

    Ohio State - #11
    Jaxon Smith-Njigba Headshot

    Position: WR

    Class: Junior

    Height: 6'1"

    Weight: 200 lbs

    Overview
    A bigger slot that can eat alive the middle of the defense, JSN doesn't possess the speed Joe Douglas has routinely chased at WR in the draft. Despite that, he's incredible at working through traffic from the slot.

    Jordan Addison Headshot

    Position: WR

    Class: Junior

    Height: 6'0"

    Weight: 175 lbs

    Overview
    The former Biletnikoff winner, Addison comes with a similar lightweight frame Devonta Smith did. The good news? He also has the same crafty route running, ball adjustments and insanely high IQ vs. all coverages.

    Quentin Johnston Headshot

    Position: WR

    Class: Junior

    Height: 6'2" 3/4

    Weight: 208 lbs

    Overview
    A massive target with build up speed to make plays down the field, Johnston's adjustments and overall ball skills need to improve to become a high end number 2. His splash plays are the most impressive of this wide receiver class.

    Cedric Tillman Headshot

    Position: WR

    Class: Senior (RS)

    Height: 6'3"

    Weight: 213 lbs

    Overview
    One of my favorite sleepers, Tillman is the perfect round 3 option as a Corey Davis replacement. His 2021 film as a big bodied possession target is extremely impressive. If he didn't get hurt this year, he'd be locked into round two.

    Position: WR

    Class: Senior

    Height: 5'10"

    Weight: 172 lbs

    Overview
    He reminds me so much of what Elijah Moore was for Ole Miss. The Jets need to get bigger at wide receiver, not smaller.

    Jalin Hyatt Headshot

    Position: WR

    Class: Junior

    Height: 6'0"

    Weight: 176 lbs

    Overview
    A true burner, Hyatt plays a near identical game to Will Fuller. Quietly, the Jets could still use another vertical threat in their wide receiver room.

    Position: WR

    Height: 5'9 5/8"

    Weight: 177 lbs

    Overview
    Scott will be the discount buy for teams not looking to use a first round pick on Jalin Hyatt. He's a bit more compact and from watching the film, production was left on the table from missed throws.
