This is the second recent mock draft that has the Jets picking this guy, which might surprise some people.
In his latest mock draft, NFL Network’s Bucky Brooks, a former NFL player and scout, has the Jets picking Florida cornerback C.J. Henderson.
His colleague, and podcast partner, Daniel Jeremiah, also a former scout, recently did the same thing.
In the case of Jeremiah, the top four offensive tackle prospects were gone in his mock draft before the Jets selected.
In Brooks’ case, three were gone, but Louisville’s Mekhi Becton was still available.
But the bottom line is, if the Jets add a couple of offensive linemen in free agency, cornerback could be in play for them with the 11th pick of the first round.
It’s a big need for Gang Green.
