Here is a 7 round New York Jets mock draft for 2022.
Using our mock draft simulator, here is one look at who the New York Jets might look at selecting in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Even though this does not include trades it does give an indication as to who may be available when the Jets pick.
So here it is – your New York Jets Mock Draft.
Round 1: Pick 4 – EVAN NEAL – OT – Alabama
The offensive line isn’t the worst position group on the Jets roster but with the two elite edge rushers off the board they could do far worse than drafting the best available player in the form of Alabama tackle Evan Neal.
Round 1: Pick 10 – GEORGE KARLAFTIS – EDGE – Purdue
I’ve seen Karlaftis all over the place in mock drafts but with the way things have fallen here, the under-hyped edge rusher would give the Jets an exciting skill set to work with to go and attack opposing quarterbacks.
Round 2: Pick 35 – KYLER GORDON – CB – Washington
Another area of need for the Jets is in the secondary and they may well have their eye on one of the top corners with one of their first round picks. But waiting and drafting Kyler Gordon here wouldn’t be a bad consolation prize at all – he’s tall, rangy and excels in coverage.
Round 2: pick 38 – GEORGE PICKENS – WR – Georgia
Injuries have meant we’re not talking about George Pickens anything like as much as some of the other receivers in this year’s draft, but Zach Wilson would likely love this selection!
Round 3: pick 69 – LEO CHENAL – LB – Wisconsin
Don’t buy the first round hype on Leo Chenal who excels in diagnosing run plays between the tackles and shutting them down but will likely come off the field on passing downs. As a role player in Robert Salah’s defense however, he’d be a very nice addition.
Round 4: pick 111 – ISAIAH LIKELY – TE – Coastal Carolina
Another weapon for Zach Wilson’s armoury, Likely is predominately a receiving tight end though he’s not afraid to get stuck in and do his share of blocking if he needs to. The upside if he can get used to an NFL offense is high too.
Round 4: Pick 117 – TYLER ALLGEIER – RB – BYU
How about reuniting Zach Wilson with one of his college teammates as seems to be all the rage at the moment? Allgeier is a powerful downhill runner who should fit right into the Jets offense.
Round 5: Pick 146 – TARIQ CASTRO-FIELDS – CB – Penn State
I’ve already talked about the weakness in the Jets secondary, so doubling down here with a talented player in Tariq Castro-Fields who can contribute on Special Teams early in his career and continue to add depth would be a good move.
Round 5: Pick 163 – TYREKE SMITH – EDGE – Ohio State
Tyreke Smith hasn’t always been able to deliver at a consistent level, but his film shows some impressive flashes of ability and Robert Salah will certainly see plenty of upside at this point.
