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. Although half of the ten mocks that go into the second round have Gang Green taking a wide receiver, only a single player came up twice, LSU center Lloyd Cushenberry III.
LC3 was very impressive in Indianapolis. His performance at the combine has moved him from a likely third day pick into the second round. We wrote about him briefly in the previous mock draft compilation.
An intriguing prospect that has fallen into the second round is Laviska Shenault Jr. Due to the combination of a core muscle injury, lackluster combine, and unusually deep receiver draft class, the New York Jets might be able to get a huge steal.
Shenault is a player I’ve seen quite a few times when I covered the PAC-12 in 2018. His ability to get separation and make athletic catches is quite impressive. The 6-2, 220-pound receiver didn’t perform as well in 2019 as he did in the previous season but was a down year for the Buffaloes. Nevertheless, he is a game-breaker.
"Shenault’s combination of size, explosiveness, and after-the-catch ability is unrivaled in the class. He’s not a polished product by any means, but he’s got special tools that you can’t teach. – Michael Renner, Pro Football Focus."
Other selected to go to Gang Green in the second round include Josh Jones, OT, Houston; Kristian Fulton, DB, LSU; Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU; Marlon Davidson, Edge, Auburn; Damon Arnette, CB, Ohio State; Michael Pittman, WR, USC; Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU; and Brandon Aiyuk, WR, Oregon.
