It’s been an interesting season for the New York Jets. They are on a three-game win streak after opening the season 1-7. As of now, Gang Green will select 10th overall.

Now through the NFL draft next April, Empire Writes Back will compile data from various mock drafts. Rather than our readers chase across the internet for who the New York Jets will pick, EWB gives you the consensus.

This is a monthly feature through the Super Bowl and then we ramp up from there. The sources may change a bit from article to article, but they are credible. This month we used CBS Sports, NBC Sports, USA Today Draftwire,, Tankathon, NFL Draft Geek, Football Discussions, Draft Network, and Walter Football.

The way the New York Jets 2019 season has played out figuring on who they will draft next spring is a fluid situation. During their win streak, Gang Green has gone from picking second to picking tenth. With games against Cincinnati and Miami in the next two weeks, they may pick even later.

This is shaping up to be a good draft for New York to get help in the positions where they need it. The question is where do the New York Jets need help the most?

Offensive line is the first area that comes to mind. The rushing game has been stagnant even with Le’Veon Bell. They rank last in the NFL in yards per carry. Also, quarterback Sam Darnold would benefit by having a little more time in the pocket.

Stopping the run hasn’t been a problem, the New York Jets have allowed the fewest rushing yards in the NFL, yielding a paltry 78.1 yards per game. Their pass defense is a work in progress. Adding a steady cover cornerback and or impact edge rusher will take their overall defense from good to great.

Wide receiver presents another area of opportunity. Robby Anderson will be a free agent at the end of the year. Quincy Enunwa is out all season due to another neck injury. It’s unsure if he can come back and even if he does, Enunwa has publicly called out the team for the way they have handled his rehab.

This will be GM Joe Douglas’ first New York Jets draft. He can make an impact almost immediately.
