Round 1, 11th overall pick

There is a consensus. The New York Jets are going offense as 18 of 19 mock drafts have Gang Green selecting either a receiver or tackle. The players most likely to be selected are:

Jerry Jeudy – WR, Alabama – 7 mocks

Tristan Wirfs – OT, Iowa – 4

Jerry Jeudy is a legitimate impact player. Over the past two seasons for the Crimson Tide, he pulled in 145 passes for 2478 yards, and 14 touchdowns. In big games, Jeudy steps up. The wideout caught five balls for 71 yards against National Champion LSU. Against Michigan in the Citrus Bowl Jeudy blew up the Wolverines to the tune of 204 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions.

On many big boards, Jeudy is the top receiver. He has good, not great size at 6-1, 195-pounds but makes up for it in other ways. Blessed with great hands, Jeudy is also a gifted route runner who can get the deep ball with outstanding speed.

"He is a fast wideout who is a game-breaker. After a fast first-step, Jeudy has a second gear to accelerate down the field and stretch defenses over the top. He can run by double coverage and score from anywhere on the field. His speed and athleticism allow him to consistently generate separation from defensive backs because he is very difficult to run with…After the catch, Jeudy is excellent. He is very elusive in the open field, possessing phenomenal feet to dodge tacklers, stop/start, and cut through the secondary. – Charlie Campbell, Walter Football"

At 6-5, 335 pounds, tackle Tristan Wirfs is a big man. Even with that great size, Wirfs is still quick and athletic. He anchored Iowa’s offensive line in 2019 and can do it in the NFL as well. That is due to his size, strength and exceptional footwork. The biggest issue in drafting him is that he plays right tackle which means Wirfs doesn’t protect the quarterback’s blindside. On the other hand, Bell could gain big yards running behind him.

Others receiving votes: Jedrick Wills Jr., OT, Alabama – 2; Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville – 2; Austin Jackson, OT, Southern California -2; CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma – 1; K’Lavon Chaisson, Edge, LSU – 1.
