Round 2, 48th overall
There isn’t as much information about the following rounds. The deeper a mock draft goes the more of a guessing game it becomes. Different writers may have great internal sources, but there are so many variables in play that it makes predictions very difficult.
Needless to say with all the could happen in the 32 selections between the New York Jets first and second-round picks, a consensus is nearly impossible. Of the nine mocks that go into the second round, only a single player came up twice, LSU wide receiver Justin Jefferson.
Jefferson is long, lean and presents a size mismatch for most corners at 6-2, 195-pounds. Additionally, he can climb the ladder to outjump defenders. Last season, Jefferson was a huge weapon for quarterback Joe Burrow, and the National Campion LSU Tigers, catching 111 passes for 1540 yards and 18 touchdowns.
"There is a lot to like about Jefferson for the NFL because he has the skill set to be an effective starting receiver. He has mismatch height and length with solid hands, leaping ability, and body control downfield. Those things make Jefferson very dangerous to make receptions over defensive backs and come down with contested catches even when he is covered. – Charlie Campbell, Walter Football"
Analysts are divided on Okwara. Some draft experts think he is a first-round talent. Others don’t see him that way. Until Okwara broke his fibula in November, the Notre Dame captain was having a strong season for the Irish. That injury has dropped his standing.
Those who haven’t dropped him believe the injury doesn’t take away from the fact that Okwara is a top pass rusher. He is an athletic 6-4, 245 pounds with high potential. Okwara will need to improve his consistency but will make an impact on opposing quarterbacks.
