This draft is playing with fire because it relies on two things, the dolphins taking Chase at 3, and our trades not falling through so we stay in the top 5. Both are risky chances. But even with conservative deals there is a potential large reward. This build assumes things go our way. Lets begin. 1. With the first pick of the 2021 draft the Jacksonville Jaguars select: Trevor Lawrence 2. The New York Jets have traded the second pick in the 2021 draft to the Atlanta Falcons. HIGH The Jets get Atlanta first (4), second, (36), and third (68). LOW The Jets get Atlanta first (4), second (36). With the 2nd pick in the 2021 draft the Atlanta Falcons select. QB Justin Fields We are giving it up cheap to gain their position. Playing with fire hoping the dolphins select Chase. Since this is an ideal mock they will. JETS 2021 PICKS - 4, 23, 34, 36, 66, 68, 87. 98. 130, 138, 162, 215 We now have 4 top 40 picks. First three rounds are bolded. 3. With the third pick in the 2021 the Miami Dolphins select: WR Jamaar Chase 4. The New York Jets have traded the fourth pick in the 2021 draft to the Cincinnati Bengals. HIGH The Jets get the Bengals 2 round pick, (38), and third round 2022. LOW The Jets get Bengals 2 round pick, (38). With the 4th pick in the 2021 draft the Cincinnati Bengals select: OT Peniel Sewell Sewell can go for a second and I'd be happy. We don't have much more leverage then that, but maybe a third next year if JD is good. Of course taking Sewell here would be a good option but not in this mock. By trading from 4-5 we continue to hold a position of trade value. JETS 2021 PICKS - 5, 23, 34, 36, 38, 66, 68, 87. 98. 130, 138, 162, 215 We now have 5 top 40 picks. 5. The New York Jets have traded the 5th pick in the 2021 draft to the Carolina Panthers. HIGH The Jets get Carolina's second (39) and third (73), and Bridgwater. LOW The Jets get Carolina's second (39) and third (73). With the 5th pick of the 2021 draft the Carolina Panthers select: QB Zach Wilson Carolina is one of several teams in the top 10 that would be interested in a top 3 QB. Ultimately it doesn't matter who they take. JETS 2021 PICKS - 8, 23, 34, 36, 38, 39, 66, 68, 73, 87. 98. 130, 138, 162, 215 We now have 6 top 40 picks and 12 in the first 3 rounds. Plus another potential third, a second in 2022, and Bridgewater on the high end. MORE TRADES We give the Saints picks 66, 98, and 130 for their 1st - currently pick 29. The Saints are in cap hell after this season and only have 3 picks this draft. I'm sure they'd cash their low first for 3 picks. Might have to turn the 130 into the 98 though. Something we can now easily afford. JETS 2021 PICKS - 8, 23, 28, 34, 36, 38, 39, 68, 73, 87, 98.138, 162, 215 In the final tally we have gone from 3 top 40 picks to 7 top 40 picks, and 11 in the first 3 rounds. TOP 50 PICKS: (8) - Kwity Paye - Edge (23) - Wayett Davis - IOL (28) - Rashod Batemen - WR (34) - Dion Kendrick CB (36) - Aliija Vera Tucker - IOL (38) - Creed Humphry - IOL (39) - Javonte Williams - RB These are my top rated edge, and top 3 interior linemen, plus a pretty darn good RB and CB. That is a great core build. Plus we still have 5 more picks, including 2 thirds. This is the value of trading well and maintaining a prime trade position. Some of those picks could be cashed in for another 1st next year.
